USC basketball: Trojans add Danilo Dragovic as a walk-on

USC Danilo Dragovic, the younger brother of former UCLA forward Nikola Dragovic, will be a walk-on guard for the USC men's basketball team this season, USC officials confirmed late Monday night.

The 6-foot-5 guard is an interesting story, as he didn't play last season at North Hollywood Harvard-Westlake after a judge upheld a CIF ruling that Dragovic had exhausted his varsity eligibility after playing junior varsity the season before following his move from Serbia.

Because of his situation, Dragovic, who also attended Santa Barbara San Marcos High while living with a guardian but did not play because of CIF transfer restrictions, is still raw and was under the radar as a recruit.

Still, he's a noted shooter and could help USC now that senior guard Jio Fontan is out for the season with an injury.
