Kyle Smith and the Cougars have landed a signature from the son of a former NBA star, reportedly getting a letter of intent from California forward Dennis “D.J.” Rodman.

Rodman, the son of ex-Chicago Bulls power forward Dennis Rodman – a five-time NBA champion and two-time Defensive Player of the Year – has signed a financial aid agreement with the Cougars, CougCenter reported Friday.

A 6-foot-6 forward from JSerra Catholic in San Juan Capistrano, California, Rodman only had a few other Division I offers, from Cal State Fullerton, UC Riverside and Sacramento State, according to 247Sports.com and VerbalCommits.com.


Though he didn’t receive a star rating from any of the major recruiting services, Rodman, a two-sport star at JSerra, averaged 24.2 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists as a senior playing in Southern California’s highly-regarded Trinity League.
