Four-star forward Olivier-Maxence Prosper gave a verbal commitment to Brad Brownell and Clemson Basketball this morning. He is a 4 star forward from Mexico and is planning to reclassify from the 2021 class into the 2020 class.
This is another good get for Brownell. The Tigers need some size and the 6’7 Prosper helps in that area. 247 has him 82nd overall for 2020 and as the 15th best PF of the 2020 class. He chose Clemson over Baylor, Cal, and Stanford. With the two commitments, Clemson currently is ranked with the 24th best recruiting class for 2020.
That’s two Top 100 players for 2020 in as many days, and that can not be discounted. Top 100 guys are hard to get for a program like Clemson’s. This won’t fit the “Brownell can’t recruit” narrative that many people out there like to push. What the Tigers head coach has done since the end of a disappointing 2018-19 season, on the transfer market and now on the recruiting trail, had been nothing short of remarkable.
