USC basketball player already a millionaire


No, you don’t have to call the NCAA to look into USC’s compliance, because this Trojan made his money off the court.

Sam Dhillon is a 6-foot-8 walk-on forward who is no ordinary walk-on, student athlete or student for that matter. The junior, who is studying organic chemistry, owns an investment advisory firm worth over $3.5 million.

Ever the entrepreneur, Dhillon started the company out of high school. “For the first 6 months I had two clients for about $20,000, and I was making $85 — that’s all I made,” he said. “It’s now worth over $3.5 million and I have my first two NFL guys for this next year’s draft.”

But he’s not resting on his millions, oh no, Dhillon wants to become a brain surgeon. In fact, he turned down other Division I offers that would have come with playing time in order to attend USC’s medical school.

And don’t think his teammates aren’t taking advantage of having his off-the-court talents around, he’s constantly giving them financial advice. Not to mention he took them out in a limo and picked up the check at a team dinner.

“‘I said ‘guys, order as much as you want. Don’t worry about it, I got it.’ …  Seven thousand dollar tab, don’t worry about it. It was just an amazing experience.”

Sounds like someone might get voted captain next year.
