I'm not even gonna lie, my first thought when looking at this was "Dang, he sure is small to be an Offensive Lineman" lol

Is it 5 yet?

to amaze me how Clemson sells itself. The campus, the academics, the beautiful setting, and, most importantly, the Clemson family, are such huge pluses.

Sure hope Mr. Nnoko enjoys his time at Clemson and becomes a force to contend with in ACC Basketball

He would be 6-9 PF without that point on his head.

6-11, 240 lbs, athletic. Sounds like exactly what we need.

Lack of offensive skills is a concern, but we desperately need some big bodies that can play, so I'll take it. Offers from Florida, Georgetown, and Louisville? Not too shabby.

Way to go coach Brownell and staff!

Not sure....shape looks like a F-86 sabre. But it appears to have a prop on it.

It's a T-28 Trojan, 1950's USN pilot training aircraft. Some were modified for combat, AT-28, and used in Viet Nam.

Brownell did an excellent job turning Jerai into an offensive threat in just one year. If anyone can coach up the fubdamentals its brownell.

Please give Coach Winiecki alot of credit too.

He works one on one - PERSONALLY - with the big men in scrimmage drills.

Let's hope he turns out to be more effective than Bobo. We need a center on this team.

B L A M E OP for the short comings of BoBo. BoBo was totally wasting away on the pine under OP. OP wanted super stars right out of HS. Coaching kids up wasn't his thing. I'm so sO SOOOOO glad that OP is far away from Clemson. And hopefully, he will never ride through S.C. ever again. If Brownell would have had 4 years with BoBo under his staff. BoBo I do believe would have went to the NBA. One more thing, there were a lot of Tiger Nation that had thought/believed BB was a bad hire b/c he had never coached in big time Basketball. After reading everything I could find to read about Brownell. I believed that Brownell was going to be a great hire for us/Clemson. I believe that Brownell was a much better hire than Sansbury could have ever been for Clemson. In just a couple of short years, Brownell will crush the jinks we have playing in Chapel Hill. Clemson/Brownell, UNcheat, and Puke will be talked about in the same story at the same table as being the top 3 schools in the ACC. Thats right, Clemson/Brownell will be in the same conversations as one of the best teams that the ACC brings to the same table with the other two. Goooooooo Tigerssssss with Brad Brownell Re-writting Clemson basketball History. It is going to be a Bad A$$ ride to the top! Go Brownell, Go Tigersss. Buckle up Tiger Nation, and just enjoy the ride. I truely believe we/Clemson will be rising to the top of the ACC in just a couple more years.

Bobo got better under BB, there is no question about that.

But you can't coach quickness. Bobo could run the floor very well for such a big guy, but he didn't have the quickness to be a NBA player. In the NBA he would be in foul trouble in three minutes on the floor. Just not that athletic.

A big man on the inside, and with the way Brownell and his staff teaches defense...could be sweet

Hope he can play right off the bat and is not a project. We need another post player at least 6'9 or bigger.

If you would have read the whole story on the kid. You would have read that he is very RAW. He has only been playing for two years. He is a better player on D butnot great. On the offensive side, needs alot of coaching. His coach says he is coach able, but a work in progress. Says he will be ok in TIME. Says he has the body type, moves well up and down the court for a big man. But he is going to need alot of work. But he will be worth the time spent coaching him up. He will ride the bench for a couple of years. Then he should be earning his keep the last couple of years.
