Basketball Recruiting Update: Gabe DeVoe named to All-America team

Gabe DeVoe named to All-America team

Read Update »

All American yet

Posted: Mar 14, 2014 10:25 PM

ESPN has him as a 2 star...

Re: All American yet

Posted: Mar 14, 2014 10:31 PM

This confuses me as well.

We're the only Major Coference school to offer.***

Posted: Mar 15, 2014 4:53 PM

That's a similar situation to KJ McDaniels out of HS ...

Posted: Mar 15, 2014 6:52 PM

No real major offers, and yet ...

KJ worked his a$$ off for 3 years and got better each year

Posted: Mar 15, 2014 7:36 PM

like so many of our great players in history.


Posted: Mar 15, 2014 7:49 PM

and we have another 1 flying under the radar for '15 who is within an hour of Chapel Hill.....he is sour on Duke and UNC for not even knowing who he is. They will soon.

Our coaches are doing a phenomenal job in identifying these kids very early.

What are you trying to say? That Brownell knows talent when

Posted: Mar 15, 2014 11:27 PM

he sees it, makes an offer, kids commits early and now he is a PARADE All-American? Brownell knows talent and can coach it up. Ex: see current team.

Congrats Gabe. Big, big honor!!***

Posted: Mar 14, 2014 10:28 PM

I think this kid could be the domino

Posted: Mar 14, 2014 10:28 PM

That spaces the floor for our offense and really allows KJ and Nnoko to take of next year.

Gabe was late a bloomer..

Posted: Mar 14, 2014 11:13 PM

ESPN never rated him any more after his Junior year. Recruiting expert Bob Gibbons has Gabe in the top 100 of this 2014 class. Look at the list of names on that Parade team. Gabe might not be in the top 20 players in this class but he gained respect and many know he is a hidden gem.

ESPN didn't rate him beyond his junior year?!!! That's some rating system they've got going there.

in Durham and Chapel Hill have TWO each from this list so they must all be pretty good players. Perhaps they didn't know Devoe had committed to Clemson or they would have left him off. Remember that two kids named Wise and Rome made this list years and they worked out pretty well at Clemson..... for a short while! I don't believe Jennings made this did he?

Re: Our friends

Posted: Mar 15, 2014 12:36 PM

Jennings was a McDonald's All-American.

Don't confuse Parade and McD's All-American with a list

Posted: Mar 15, 2014 2:19 PM

of the best 20 or 30 high school players . Both Conde Nast (publisher of Parade) and McDonald's look for high character, academically solid kids to represent their brand. In 2009, for example, everyone knew John Wall was the best high school player in the country. He made neither AA team. Milton was second team Parade AA (there were 10 first teamers, 10 second teamers, etc.) as well as making the McDonald's game (one of about 35). Wall - on the other hand made the Michael Jordan All-Star game and Milt didn't ...

Notwithstanding all that, Parade All-America is a huge honor for Gabe. From 2star to Parade magazine in one season is an astonishing development. He may end up with a 4th star. Can't wait to have him in Clemson.

Re: Don't confuse Parade and McD's All-American with a list

Posted: Mar 15, 2014 4:24 PM

What you say is true. Devoe has a 4.0+ gpa. Wise and Rome however were not scholars! Things have changed for the better.

Not sure about "character," but Wall was a good student***

Posted: Mar 19, 2014 2:15 PM

Bet now that Gabe will be demoted to a 1 Star talent ***

To All CLEMSON TiGERS..Sending you Bright Light from the Carolina Coast and hoping you get to witness a huge Orange sunset tonight. Go Tigers!

Bold Statement

Posted: Mar 15, 2014 2:17 PM


As soon as he steps on campus, he'll be the best player
on the entire Clemson team.

not 2nd.

IMO, he won't be in top 5 with everyone we have back.

Posted: Mar 15, 2014 4:44 PM

Heck, another incoming freshman, Donte Graham, should be better.

He'll have to play defense as well as score to start at CU

Posted: Mar 15, 2014 6:50 PM

I see him as coming off the bench next year when we need a scoring lift, but having to pay his dues on the defensive end of the court to break into Brad's Top 5.

I agree that Grantham probably has a better shot at starting next season.

Van Gregg?***

Posted: Mar 15, 2014 7:28 PM

Yep, sorta like Van Gregg ... or Fred Gilliam

Posted: Mar 15, 2014 7:55 PM

Though, more recently, I'm thinking more along the lines of Terrence Oglesby.

Re: Yep, sorta like Van Gregg ... or Fred Gilliam

Posted: Mar 16, 2014 11:13 AM

How could you leave Butch Zatazalo out of this group???

He was long before most of you guys.

Re: Butch

Posted: Mar 16, 2014 11:17 AM

I left him out because Butch (a prolific scorer) was a starter his whole career even though he played practically no defense. Such was the state of Clemson hoops in the late 60s-early 70s.


Posted: Mar 16, 2014 11:53 AM

the team's problems are scoring, not defense. Everyone
on the team can't be built to JUST play defense. Just
like everyone isn't built to score. Which, in fact is
harder. The team needs play makers and scorers; In order
to get better. In fact, McDaniels is a mere athlete...at
this time.
IMO, there IS NO ONE..no one on the team like Devoe. Not
even close really. Hes the closest thing we had to a
scorer since KC Rivers. So, if Brad wants the team to be
better (IMO*) -he'll put Devoe into the heat, right away.
And see what he can do.



Posted: Mar 16, 2014 11:48 AM

and you might be right.
But it won't be because he isn't the best player on
the team. It would be because the staff won't see it.



What? Look, I'm excited about Devoe, but he's played

Posted: Mar 19, 2014 1:47 PM

against lower level competition all year, 2-A in NC. He's a freshman, and like all freshman, he'll be behind the learning curve. The best thing about his situation, along with Rooks and Grantham, is none of them will need to be the star. They can work themselves in to positions of contributing, all bringing much needed shooting, and not have to have the total load dumped on them. He's not Jabarri Parker
