Jordan McLaughlin (Etiwanda, Calif./Etiwanda), the No. 18 player in the 2014 ESPN 100, committed to USC on Wednesday, choosing the Trojans over UCLA, Indiana and Kansas. Our scouts offer a take on how he will fit in with the Trojans.

Why he committed: When you look at the roster there will be no true point guard on the USC roster next season and there was a dire need at that position. Being a local product, McLaughlin felt good about the new staff and staying close to home where family and friends can see him play and support him.
