South Florida forward commits to Clemson

Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) forward Ben Middlebrooks announced a commitment to Clemson on Monday. He was named to the Broward 5A-1A first team after averaging 20.5 points and 13.6 rebounds per game last season. Middlebrooks is slated to reclassify to the 2021 class.

he's a stretch 4 not a center. probably will be Bahre's replacement but not sold he will be ready to contribute a lot next season. still need a couple of ready to go transfers.

solid pick up. still think we need a 6-6 to 6-8 athlete transfer to go with another 6-4 to 6-6 athletic wing who can contribute a lot quickly, but at least we get another player on the roster. Auburn and other high majors really wanted Middlebrook.

I don't think auburn really wanted him. They're signing 5* power forwards and guards, along with the 4* center transfer. Would he have been like a project/develpmental player for them? Kinda like Dabo taking a preferred walk on? I'm asking.

Question: when I look at the top recruits, why isn't Clemson offering them. Is it not like football?

Glad you stated it for the 3rd time as we could not tell if you were serious after the first two

Explain this. In-person recruiting is not currently permitted.

That’s a great point.

Clemson plane must’ve been there for another reason then.

Sounds like it must’ve been non-athletic related.

Right, so why do you keep posting that you know why the plane was there?

last summer when he was going to his junior season. Again a lot of potential of skill. Still think wont really help out a lot until two seasons.

Thanks for the link. From the headline I thought he was...

...a USF transfer, not a high school commit. Looks like a good pickup!

Some commenters use italics to indicate sarcasm, while others prefer the traditional ending of /s. Others eschew any indication of sarcasm as a dilution of wit. Before down voting somebody, ask yourself, "Could this be sarcasm?"

Nevermind, guess it's like football where everyone throws an offer out but only certain schools actively recruited.

Yep, definitely needs to hit the weights.

Those were real offers.***

So if he picked auburn then they would have taken him, right?

link

That’s the logical assumption, since they offered him a scholarship


Posted: Apr 19, 2021, 9:24 PM
 

and I am not aware that they rescinded their offer.

Why are the details of his other offers so important to you? You’ve already made several posts about this.

Well judge, I'm just trying to understand if this is like compared to football if he is a Cade Stewart QB pickup or like adding a Hunter Helms QB ? That's all.

Case Stewart is an OL on our football team.

Hunter helms is a preferred walk on that’s best offer was from Holy Cross

Thanks, I meant Klubnik. Since I'm not a paying member and apparently limited to posts on the subject, then I can't edit or delete.

That said, when I originally asked questions, I only got a question back, then when I explain why, I never get an answer.

link

I don’t understand the problem.


Posted: Apr 19, 2021, 11:33 PM
 

He had a lot of good offers, including ours. He had a chance to reclassify from 2022 to 2021 and did so because he really likes Clemson and saw an opportunity to come in and get minutes.

We wanted him, or else we wouldn’t have been recruiting him, wouldn’t have offered him a scholarship, and wouldn’t have allowed him to reclassify to 2021.

He’s not a stopgap player to fill a roster spot. Our program is in a much better situation than to have to resort to players who are just warm bodies. In case you forgot, we were really deep this past season. We will round out our roster with a good transfer or two before this offseason is said and done.

From watching all the film on him, he’s a solid prospect. Great foundation shooting and ball handling wise for his height. Will possibly need a year or two in the program to improve his strength and athleticism. Has the upside to be one of those Gonzaga-style face up bigs over time if we can retain him for 4 years.

Nice to see BBrecruit someone taller than 6-2 and a guard.
Now, let’s develop him, get him some playing time.
Still need an enforcer in the middle. But better than before.

You’re right, Brad never recruits anyone taller than 6’2” and a guard.


Posted: Apr 19, 2021, 11:29 PM
 

Except for all of our signees the last two cycles:

6’8” PF Ian Schieffelin
6’4” SG Joshua Beadle
6’9” PF P.J. Hall
6’10” C Lynn Kidd
6’8” F Olivier Maxence-Prosper

You are so touchy, but the facts do not change regarding inside game.
You keep defending not having an inside game. When was the last season Clemson had inside game?

There are 3 players currently on the team at 6-8 or taller.

Prosper left. Not sure why you included him.
Kidd played 33 min all season.
Hall played 209 min - best in class
Tyson - starter.

So, I made a comment that I am glad he recruited a big and you get touchy. I must have hit a nerve.

Are you incredibly dumb, or do you just not really pay attention to our basketball team. It has to be one or the other

So,
To summarize your personal attack.

Are you not wanting to develop big men?
Are you not wanting an enforcer in the middle?

Do you not think it nice that BB recruited a big man?

So what exactly are you objecting to?

Re: TNET: South Florida forward commits to Clemson


Posted: Apr 20, 2021, 9:30 AM
 

Lynn kidd and PJ Hall are the two highest rated big men we have signed in quite some time.

Lynn kidd reclassified and knew he wouldn’t get many minutes behind Amir Simms and pj hall.

You said “it’s nice to see us recruit somebody taller than 6-2”

That is not even close to accurate. Also O-Max counts because you said “recruited”. I don’t know if you realize that we actually did recruit O-Max.

So you are either an idiot, don’t pay attention to Clemson basketball, or you were trying to be funny. And you failed at that.

Either way, good input.

The facts I can live with. The personal attacks go to your character.

If you would stop with personal attacks and defensiveness - perhaps you would see the bigger picture to my post. I was glad that we got a big man. You went sideways after the word recruit. In your mind perhaps I should have used the word signed.

We don’t have an inside game.
We don’t have a shot blocker - rim protector.

We have not had these for years.
Every time a name is brought up on transfers, they seem to be 6-2 guard or so.

IMO - in order to move forward in P5 leagues, you must have inside presence. If for nothing more than to block shots or make the defense collapse for the guard play.

You seem to want to make everything a personal attack. Shame. Most people don’t.

Keep your attacks to yourself. Good discussion is always welcome.

Well I get tired of people being so ridiculously negative on everything as it pertains to Clemson basketball.

We sign a guy that has impressive offers and is 6-11 and people have to scrutinize his offer list and say he actually didn’t have his offers. You with your stupid and negative comments. I’m sorry. Your comment was dumb and inaccurate. I told you it was dumb. That’s just how it is. I guess I am just a low character guy.
