“Clyde had a strong interest in Clemson from the outset,” Head coach Brad Brownell said. “He emerged on the recruiting scene this past summer after changing positions and getting more exposure. He is an exceptional athlete with good ball skills and vision, who has all the tools necessary to be a good defender in our program. He continues to get better, and I love the fact that he is a versatile athlete who can play multiple positions.”
