Player Bio

Dewayne Jamal Dedmon was born in 1989 in Lancaster, California. He is the son of Thomas Dedmon and Gail Lewis and has two older sisters. The big center played his high school ball at Lancaster High School. For college, Dedmon stayed close to home, first playing for Antelope Valley College in Lancaster and then transferring to USC. As a college freshman, Dedmon grew three inches and leveled off at seven feet. While at USC, he majored in sociology. Fans can follow him on Twitter and Instagram (@d_dedmon3). After only one season of high school basketball, Dewayne Dedmon played for the hometown Antelope Valley College team as a freshman in 2009-10. That year he grew three inches and was seven feet tall by the end of the season. He averaged 6.8 points and 7.8 rebounds and transferred to nearby University of Southern California. Due to transfer regulations, Dedmon redshirted the 2010-11 season. During his first season for the Trojans, the Lancaster, California native played in only 20 games due to injuries, including a torn left MCL. As a junior (2012-13), he played in 31 games (29 starts) and led USC in rebounds (7.0), defensive rebounds (4.7), offensive rebounds (2.3), blocks (2.1) and steals (1.1) per game. His 2.1 blocks per contest ranked third in the Pac-12. Dedmon decided to forgo his last year of college eligibility and declared for the 2013 NBA Draft and went undrafted.
