Basketball: Transfers all on campus

With the arrival of former Wake Forest forward Ari Stewart over the weekend, all three of USC's transfers in the class of 2011 are now on campus and officially in the program.

Stewart joined former UC Irvine forward Eric Wise and ex-Texas jucos Greg Allen and James Blasczyk as transfers, although both Allen and Blasczyk will be eligible to compete this season and Wise and Stewart won't be eligible until 2012-2013.

A 6-7, 205-pound forward, Stewart averaged 8.5 points and 4.4 rebounds for the Demon Deacons a year ago. Wise, an undersized 6-5, 230-pound power forward, was Irvine's leading scorer and rebounder as a junior -- putting up averages of 16.3 points and 8.1 rebounds.

Allen averaged roughly 12 points per game and shot 38 percent from 3-point range and 86 percent from the free-throw line last season at Navarro College. Blasczyk, a 7-1 center, didn't play basketball at Lee College last season after playing sparingly his freshman year at Texas A&M and then redshirting his sophomore season.

USC will have 11 scholarship players available next season, with Wise and Stewart then available the next year: guards Jio Fontan, Maurice Jones, Alexis Moore, Byron Wesley and Allen, forwards Garrett Jackson, Curtis Washington, Aaron Fuller and Evan Smith and centers DeWayne Dedmon and Blasczyk.

Only Fontan will be a senior of that group, and he'll have the ability to petition the NCAA for an additional year of eligibility if he so desires.
