USC basketball recruiting: Point guard Julian Jacobs commits to Trojans

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

The Trojans added a distributor to the class of 2013 on Wednesday.

Desert Pines High School point guard Julian Jacobs has committed to play basketball for the USC Trojans, according to Scout.com. He had previously been committed to the Utah Utes, but re-opened his recruitment back in August.

Jacobs is rated as a two-star prospect on Scout. Yahoo! and ESPN think more highly of the 6'2 guard, as they have both have him pegged as a three-star. ESPN ranks Jacobs as the best prospect in Nevada, and the 35th-best point guard in the class of 2013.

In the video embedded below, Jacobs describes himself as a pass-first point guard who prefers to set up others to make plays. He shows his athleticism with an impressive dunk, and even on that play he says he was looking to give the ball up.


The Trojans now have five commitments in their 2013 class. The most highly-regarded of the group is Kendal Harris out of Richardson, Texas. Harris is an ESPN 100 prospect and ranked as the 19th-best point guard in the country. Harris and Jacobs may combine to solidify the USC backcourt for years to come.
