USC basketball star center Dewayne Dedmon will not make a return to the Galen Center for new Head Coach Andy Enfield, as he’s decided to forgo his senior season and ditch the NCAA for the NBA Draft.
USC junior C Dewayne Dedmon is leaving @usc_hoops early to enter the NBA Draft. “It’s just my time to chase my dream and go to the NBA.”

Dedmon averaged 6.7 points and 7.0 rebounds as a junior this past season, and showed a new-found on-court maturity in the second half of the season. The 7-foot center had a career high 18 points on March 6th up in Seattle against Washington, though his best game of the season came on the road against Utah. In what was Kevin O’Neill’s final game at USC, Dedmon had a double-double, scoring 13 points and securing 13 rebounds as the Trojans routed the Utes, 76-59.
With a frame that makes NBA scouts drool, Dedmon has the potential to be a successful player in the NBA, but he still has plenty of work ahead of him, as he’s still extremely raw.
