Howard, who committed to USC in June, applied and received for a waiver to play immediately after transferring from Maryland to be closer to his ailing grandmother for his senior season.
“I’m extremely grateful and blessed,” Howard said in a text message to Galen Central’s Max Meyer. “I can be close to my family, help them out and play for USC this year.”
Howard, who is 6-foot-3 and 190-pounds, started 44 total games at Maryland. He averaged 3.3 points and 3.6 assists per game last year.
“On the court, Pe’Shon will provide leadership and we expect him to have a terrific senior season,” USC coach Andy Enfield said in a statement.
