Clemson received a 2015 basketball commitment on Tuesday with international prospect Legend Robertin of Chipola Community College in Florida. He is a 7-foot, 220 lb center prospect that will have three years of eligibility left at Clemson.

Robertin competed shortly at Believe Prep in Rock Hill, S.C. before enrolling at Chipola Community College.

He chose the Tigers over Alabama, Arkansas, Memphis, Tennessee, Florida State, Texas Tech, Ole Miss, South Carolina and West Virginia. Richie Riley was one of the Clemson coaches that was instrumental in getting the big-man commitment.

In the NexUpRecruit Top 50 JUCO rankings, Robertin is listed as the #11 overall JUCO player in the nation. He played and got experience for the Great Britain U-18 National team in the summer of 2013.

His ESPN scouting report: "Robertin is a long athletic post that is mobile. He has a good motor and runs the floor well. He has good hands and feet as well. Robertin is an above the rim finisher on the break and when he receives drop off passes created by dribble penetration."

One other note - his parents are from St. Lucia and he actually just started playing basketball at the age of 16. Until then, he was more of a track guy.

Clemson continues to do a good job finding big men to fill holes in the JUCO ranks in the last few years.
