Waynesboro (Va.) Fishburne Military School center Jabari Craig became the third commit in Coach Andy Enfield’s inaugural recruiting class.

The three-star recruit and 6’11” big man chose the Trojans over Arizona State, Louisville, Ohio State and others. Craig is also ranked as the 22nd-best center prospect in the country by Scout, 24th by ESPN and is ranked as the 144th-best prospect in the Class of 2014 by Rivals.

Craig’s biggest strength is his post defense, as he is a tremendous rebounder and shot blocker in the paint. He has great length and is also very physical on both ends of the floor. While Craig is raw offensively, he’s a nice fit in Enfield’s system because of his strong athleticism and his ability to run the floor.

Craig played for Tucker High School last season, one of Georgia’s top basketball programs, last season, and averaged 8.5 points, 6.9 rebounds and 3.1 blocks. He also played alongside Andrew Wiggins for Team Canada, and is originally from Ontario, Canada.

Craig’s verbal commitment follows that of four-star point guard’s Jordan McLaughlin and four-star power forward’s Malik Price-Martin to bolster the Trojans’ 2014 recruiting class. Craig’s official visit to USC was on September 7th, the same day as McLaughlin’s.
