D.J. Rodman, the son of former NBA player Dennis Rodman, is heading to the University of Southern California (USC) to play basketball for his final year of college.

He joins an already impressive Trojans roster that includes Bronny James, the son of LeBron James. Rodman announced his transfer via social media, saying that his journey had led him to "Fight On," referencing USC's rallying cry.

The younger Rodman played the last four seasons at Washington State, where he averaged 9.6 points and 5.8 rebounds per game while starting in 30 of 31 games in the previous season.

Rodman will be able to take advantage of an NCAA rule that grants an extra year of eligibility due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 6-foot-6 forward will be playing close to his hometown of Newport Beach, which is a short drive from USC's campus.

The Trojans have also secured a commitment from Isaiah Collier and Arrinten Page, both elite high school prospects. The trio will join returning starters Boogie Ellis, Kobe Johnson, and Joshua Morgan, who were key players in USC's 22-11 record last season.

Ellis led the team with 17.7 points per game, while Johnson and Morgan were named to the Pac-12's All-Defensive team. The Trojans are aiming to continue their success in the NCAA Tournament, having reached it for the third straight year last season. They lost to Michigan State in the first round.

James, who graduated from Sierra Canyon School in nearby Chatsworth, averaged 13.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 1.8 steals per game during his senior year. He was named a McDonald's All-American and played for Team USA in the Nike Hoop Summit.

Collier, a Marietta, Georgia native, scored 25 points in the McDonald's All-American game and was named co-MVP for the West team. Page was a teammate of Collier's at Wheeler High School in Marietta.
