From NBADraftBlog:

Tanner on how his game developed at Clemson:

“Staying in college for 4 years, it gave me the chance to mature, both on and off the court. There is a lot you need to handle, again both on and off the court, and my time in college really helped me learn how to take care of my business. As a player, I was able to play, and guard, multiple positions – the 1, 2, 3, and there were times I had to guard the 4. (Laughs) That was interesting. Also, having the opportunity to play for 2 different coaches, while tough, allowed me to learn a lot more about the game.”

Tanner on how to coaching switch (from Oliver Purnell to Brad Brownell) affected him as a player:

“It was a lot of hard work, but it gave me the opportunity to step up as leader during the process. I had been a starter during my sophomore year (Purnell’s last year) so myself and some of the other guys were able to step up and help the process go as smoothly as it could, while also learning a lot about ourselves as players.”
