A Very American Coup By Michael – Louis Ingram, Editor-in-Chief...
No Limit To His Success
NORTH CAROLINA — Despite USC’s 80-67 first round loss to the Kansas State Wildcats in the 2008 NCAA Tournament, Coach Tim Floyd should still be excited after awarding a scholarship to Beverly High School’s point guard Percy Romeo Miller (aka Lil’ Romeo), who is the son of rap-mogul Master P.
This should definitely create a buzz on the USC campus as well as in the the world of Hip-Hop. According to several recruiting services, Romeo is ranked amongst the top 15 prep point guards in the nation.
The Trojans of USC are definitely going to need some help in the backcourt if Freshman shooting guard O.J/ Mayo enters the NBA draft. I just hope Lil Romeo’s jump shot is better than his rap albums cause they were HOT garbage.
Now that’s of course my personal (Bobbee Bee “The Hater”) opinion.
Romeo, who now stands 6-feet-1 isn’t that little anymore. Hopefully, he can make a smooth transition from being a rapper into a serious college basketball player.
Romeo walks in the footsteps of his father Percy Miller (aka Master P), who attended the University of Houston. Romeo, like his father has Hoop Dreams of playing in the NBA basketball in the future.
Master P., in fact, played in several summer leagues with the Charlotte Hornets and Toronto Raptors. He also tried out with the Denver Nuggets as well as several CBA teams.
Miller, however is known in the world of sports for his failed sports agency that negotiated the infamous incentive filled NFL rookie contract for Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams.
Currently, Master P. and his son are helping to rebuild their hometown of New Orleans, which was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Together the two of them are building a P. Miller Youth Center that will include a boxing facility, a basketball court, a dance studio and a library.
There is NO LIMIT to the success of this father and son team so look for Romeo next at USC!! Let’s go Trojans!!!
