Romeo Signs with USC Basketball, Stars In New Film

lil-romeo.jpgMaster P’s son, Lil’ Romeo, has signed with the USC Trojans basketball team as a member of their 2008 class. Romeo Miller is a 6’1” All-American point guard for Beverly Hills High School and is the first hip-hop artist to receive a full basketball scholarship to a division one program such as USC. In addition, Romeo is also starring in a new basketball film, Sweetwater. Romeo plays as a young Nat “Sweetwater” Clifton who was the first African-American basketball player to play for an NBA team. The film also stars Richard Dreyfuss and Henry Simmons and will begin shooting in San Francisco and New York later this summer.

  • Bol’s Uncle

    Bol loves Romeo. He Tivos all his shows, owns all the dvds and CDs. He likes Romeo almost as much as he does Dakota Fanning. On some serious sick shit.

    funny.

    NEways … A scholarship, huh .. first off, that family has enough money to pay, they don’t need no scholarship. If they was real, they would’ve paid and let the scholarship go to another muthafucka who needed it.

    Second, I don’t doubt that Romeo can play ball cuz Master P is good enough to be the D-League so i’m sure he taught his son to play (and bought him all of those “Magic” fundamental of basketball videos)

    Third, this cat would never get drafted into “The Association” cuz he ain’t that good. If he was he would be a top rated High School player (which most NBAers were in thier day) and if it wasn’t for this news post, none of us would even know that Lil Romeo played ball!!

    6’1″ huh .. he might ca’ fuck Bow Wow up …

  • Still Bangin In Little Rock in 07

    Thatz good for little man. Props and good luck in your b-ball career!

  • My Effin’ Opinion

    ^^^^
    To show some class cuz the schools only give out a certain number of scholarships and there may very well be somebody who is trying to work his way outta the ghetto or just someone who lives a modest life and could really benefit from receiving a scholarship cuz that’s what people do when they can’t pay for college but really try hard to receive these grants so they can go …

    a simple “I would love to attend USC, but instead of a scholarship, just the acceptance appreciated … i’ll pay the college dues, give the scholarship to someone else who may need it” would have been commendable.

    who cares if he makes it to the NBA or not

    ^^^^

    I bet you a dollar LIL ROMEO DOES!!!! what do you think these cats aspire when they play ball .. TO BE AS SUCCESSFUL IN IT AS POSSIBLE (hence make it to the NBA) .. I bet you Master P cares too .. more than me and you. Don’t act like he’s going to USC just to play college ball and get a degree. It’s definitely a possibility, but let’s not be ignorant here.

    His father tried out for the NBA and i’m sure he would love to make it too.

    I ain’t hatin’, I’m just stated my opinion.

    1. Don’t accept a grant if you rick
    2. I don’t doubt he’s good
    3. I don’t think he’s good enough for the NBA

  • fo life

    WHO IS TO SAY LIL ROMEO AINT GOOD ENOUGH TO PLAY IN THE NBA. JUST BEACAUSE HES NOT A TOP RATED HIGHSCHOOL PLAYER DONT MEAN A DAMN THING. GILBERT AREANS, BARION DAVIS, BEN WALLACE, ALL NBA ALL STARS, WERE NEVER TOP HIGH SCHOOL PROSPECTS BUT ARE DOING JUST FINE. SO STOP THE HATE AND LETS SEE WHAT HAPPENS. IF HE TURNS INTO A GOOD COLLEGE PLAYER YOU NIGGAS THAT BE HATIN ARE THE SAME NIGGAS THAT WILL BE ALL ON HIS NUTZ SAYIN HOW GOOD HE IS. SO STOP THE HATE NIGGAZ!

  • ISAIAH

  • canwhipass

    I cannot believe that these colleges sign these young boys, especially rich kids. I am a lot older and wiser ball player than em.
    I am tired of em. They hid from in the gym. They do not want no parts of no one on one. He couldnt even hit the rim against me in a one on one.

  • jay r

    y yall hatin on lil dude if he got game to get scholarship to usc should be happy to see da young brother going to collage cause half them is caught up in this bullshit rap anyways big ups lil romeo

  • jada

    koool 4 da dude he finally did sumthin without his daddy’s help,or did master p pay dem

  • MikeBlakk

    I’m going to say this if you can ball so good or better then lil romeo why dont you have a oneway ticket to a D-1 school or in the pro’s if your that damn good just stop hatin man and let the lil dude do his thing. And for the rest that said something about the kids in the hood if they stay they ass in class and stop smokin weed and/or gang bangin and do what the coach’s and there mother and father say maybe just maybe they can get a oneway ticket to a D-1 school to
