LOS ANGELES (AP) -Lil' Romeo is headed to Southern California to play basketball.
The teenage hip-hop performer signed a national letter of intent to attend USC on Monday at a news conference held at a posh hotel near Beverly Hills.
Lil' Romeo, an actor and rapper whose full name is Percy Romeo Miller, is currently a senior guard at Beverly Hills High. He averaged 13.9 points and 5.6 assists last season. His father, hip-hop mogul Master P, had tryouts with two NBA teams in the 1990s.
``This is the most important thing I've had to do and hopefully it sends a message to kids across the country that education is more important than money,'' Miller said at the news conference. ``Getting a college scholarship is more important than winning an American Music Award, and I plan to be the best student-athlete I can be at USC.''
One recruiting service ranks Miller, a 6-0, 170-pounder, among the top 15 prep point guards in the country.
