Two big developments for Clemson basketball recruiting on Tuesday. First, Clemson head coach Brad Brownell and assistants met with 6-5 Tevin Mack of Dreher. It was the Tigers last in person meeting with Mack before he makes his decision.
He will also have a sit down with USC coach Frank Martin this week. The date has not yet been established.
Mack has also had in home visits with VCU, Connecticut and Georgia, the other three schools on his list. According to his mother, there is still no timetable for a decision.
The Tigers also have worked themselves into the lead for 6-9 Ebuka Izundu of Nigeria. He attends Victory Christian School in Charlotte and his coach said Tuesday he plans to make his decision by a week from Friday.
Never miss a local story.
Izundu had over 40 offers according to Aurice McCain and has narrowed his list to Clemson, Charlotte and Georgetown. Izundu has taken two unofficial visits to Clemson and plans to take an official visit. The date for that visit will be set on Wednesday when McCain talks with Clemson recruiter Steve Smith.
"Right now I think it's 50-50 between Charlotte and Clemson," McCain said. "Some days it's Clemson. Some days it's UNCC. You just never know."
Izundu is in his second year at Victory Christian. He averaged 18 points, 12 rebounds and 4 blocks per game last season.
"He's very athletic," his coach said. "He has a motor on him. He runs the floor extremely well and has a great mid-range game."
