    USC Trojan fan/alum here to say you guys are going to love Usher. The kid only knows one speed, and that is overdrive. His intensity and hustle are off the charts. He was definitely the fans' favorite player.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Do you know why he was suspended from the team at USC?

    I don't have specifics, but the rumors behind the paywall did not indicate something so problematic that we take a pass.

    There have been far more positive comments about him as a person, than concerns about the suspension.

    Everything I've read suggests he got into it with a coach/staff member. Sounds like a need to channel frustration/intensity better, not an outright discipline issue. TIFWIW

    His intensity is a double edged sword. He shoved an assistant and that was the final straw. His dad was a regular on the board and very well liked.

    Man, it must be easy to be a USC fan if they can casually create a thread with a name-only title :ROFLMAO:

    They have a great system where if you misspell the name it's not serious. If you spell it correctly then something bad happened.

    Appreciate the insight @Tommytrojan

    Paging @kg01 if things don't work out on CGC's staff, we can recommend you join up with CJP and crew

    Hopefully he learned from the situation. Shoving a coach is not acceptable. Losing respect for authority is not something that will bode well for an athlete at GT, however, I am pulling for him to do well.

    So you're thinking a bidding war between CGC and CJP?

    I guess what I’m seeing here is we need to recruit Mr. Usher Sr. to join our band of merry men here on the swarm

    Awesome get. This guy has some athleticism that we frankly just don't have on the roster right now. SUPER excited about this guy, wow. Very impressed.

    Our seats are over near the GT bench, and Jordan was hype all night in support of his teammates. The kid is already showing fire and passion and he hasn't played a minute.

    He's going to fill a lot of needs for us next year. Not just in terms of talent and points scored, but also in terms of confidence and energy.

    Actually Moore and Moses are as athletic if not more so than Jordan, but not as far along skill wise - though Moore has been a pleasant surprise this year imo. He's going to be really good by the time he's a Jr.
