Usc.trojans.logo The USC men's basketball team has received a verbal commitment for 2012 from Serbian forward Strahinja Gavrilovic, said a source close to the team Sunday who was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter.

Gavrilovic is 6-foot-8, 220 pounds and is enrolled as a senior at La Jolla High, the source said, adding that he is an inside/outside player who's also a good three-point shooter. 

His father, Zoran, played professionally overseas for more than a decade. 

Gavrilovic is USC's second verbal commitment for 2012. The other is Larry Lewis, a shooting guard from Arizona.
