Andy Enfield and USC got a big boost moving forth on Tuesday when it was announced that former Louisville Cardinal Shaqquan Aaron would be transferring to the school.

Aaron, a 6-foot-7 forward, picked USC over San Diego State, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal. Aaron originally hailed from Los Angeles before playing his final two years of high school ball at Rainer Beach in Seattle.

Aaron had a couple issues at Louisville. Firstly, he arrived on campus at 168 pounds, which is less than ideal for player who is 6-foot-7. Furthermore, Aaron was suspended the first nine games of the season after the NCAA ruled he had received improper benefits during his recruitment.

Those two things aside, Enfield and USC got a player with a lot of potential. Aaron has to sit out a year, but still has three years of eligibility.

In his 7.2 minutes per game last year Aaron averaged 1.3 points per game. He is a rebuilding project for Enfield, but if the staff can tap his potential, this will go down as a great move.

Below is one of Aaron's highlight videos from high school, to show the type of player he has the potential to be.
