USC men's basketball season tips off Friday night at 8 p.m. against Coppin State. 

Woolridge-Salute-PC.jpgName - Renaldo Woolridge

Position - Small Forward

Class - Redshirt Senior

Size - 6'9", 220 lbs.

Age - 22

High School - Harvard-Westlake HS (Sherman Oaks)

Game - Despite his length, Woolridge is more of a perimeter offensive threat.  He is a plus leaper who can explode to the rim, but he shot more than 40% of his field goal attempts last year at Tennessee from three-point range.  He made a solid 37.2% from distance.  Woolridge has a knack for showmanship.  The senior is an accomplished hip hop artist, and will no doubt entertain crowds at Galen Center this season.

Before USC - Woolridge played parts of four seasons in Tennessee, but redshirted his first junior year due to an ankle injury.  His production as a Vol came mostly in spurts.  He scored a season-high 17 points last year in Lexington against the national champion Kentucky Wildcats, including making five of six from three.  Coming out of Harvard-Westlake, he was ranked No. 53 overall.  He is the son of 13-year NBA pro Orlando Woolridge, who died this past summer.
