Clyde Trapp heard and saw all of the rumors, and he perused the message boards in the hopes of finding out what was transpiring with the head coach and the school he is going to attend. But he never worried. Full Story »
Clemson never has done a lot of "developmental" red shirting in hoops anyway. Usually takes and injury to hold a guy out as a freshman. Sadly though, it seems we've had a fair number of late bloomers who arrived at their senior year just beginning to come around only to see their eligiblity ran out. Especially some of our big men the past decade or so.

I know for a fact that So Carolina offered and then when David Beatty from Philadelphia showed interest and then signed with SC, the offer was basically tabled. So Carolina had their shooting guard and there was not room for Trapp.
Georgia also signed another Shooting Guard and they went in a different direction.
That means his true open offers were
Clemson, ACC Georgia Tech, ACC Missouri, SEC Kansas State Big 12
And a bunch of much smaller minor offers from non-Power 6 schools............Buffalo, Charlotte, App State, Duquesne, East Tennessee State, Rice, La Salle, Maryland-Eastern Shore, North Carolina-Pembroke, Portland, South Carolina State, Southern, South Florida, Tennessee State, VCU, and Winthrop
Wish him the best, and Clemson is in the realm of the best well-rounded universities in the country. Absolutely nothing wrong with academics at Rice, Ga Tech and UGA either. This is a young man who wants to attend Clemson and is OK with Brownell as a HC; this is not a young man who expects to play for BB for 4 years.
