Love ....and Basketball

But can he ball? By now everyone has heard the reports of Lil Romeo signing a national letter of intent to attend the University of Southern California to play basketball for the Trojans. Lil Romeo, who's real name is Percy Romeo Miller is a 6'0" senior guard at Beverly Hills High School. He averaged 13.9 points and 5.6 assists last year. Lil Romeo's father, Master P , was also a wannabe baller......twice trying out for NBA teams but never making the squads. Miller calls the scholarship deal, "the most important thing" he has ever had to do. He says he hopes kids will learn from him that "education is more important than money". One recruiting service ranks Miller among the top 15 point guards in the country. That remains to be seen.....But it is refreshing to see a young man put his interest in more than just baggy pants and gold chains. Lil Romeo.......We're with you man!
