With is season complete, USC coach Frank Martin is hitting the recruiting trail seeking to add one more piece to his class of three for 2014. Tuesday he will be in New York for a visit with 6-11 Adonis Delarosa, and Martin has a good chance at this point of landing the big man.
“He’s going to visit there,” Delarosa’s coach Joe Arbitello said on Monday. “He focused on the state (tournament) right now but he’s very interested. Frank Martin has got him interested. He’s a really smart kid and he knows about every program (that’s recruiting him). Frank has been known to coach big New York City guys. He knows the mentality and he knows the game.”
Delarosa has come on this season to become one of the better players available for the spring signing period. His coach said he will also visit Miami, Pittsburgh and Rutgers. He does not have a favorite and won’t determine one until after his visits.
Delarosa led his team to a New York City championship earlier this month. He’s averaging 14 points and 11 rebounds per game this season.
“His basketball IQ is off the chart,” Arbitello said. “He leads us in charges. He has great hands and feet and is a really good passer. And he has really good post up moves.”
