4-star on Clemson offer: 'It meant I stepped my game up'


On Wednesday, Clemson head basketball coach Brad Brownell traveled to Birmingham, Ala., to see 2018 four-star power forward Trey Jemison and deliver some good news — an offer from Clemson.

The Clemson Insider recently caught up with Jemison about the offer.

“It meant I stepped my game up big time,” Jemison said of the offer, “and this is one of the few big-time schools that have offered me.”

The 6-foot-8, 225-pounder from Homewood High School also owns offers from Auburn, Alabama, Arkansas-Little Rock, Georgia, Liberty, Saint Louis, Samford, Stanford, UAB and Vanderbilt.

What does Jemison like about Clemson?

“That coach is a really great guy!” Jemison said of Brownell. “The academics are amazing, and I love the way they run their offense.”

Jemison certainly feels he could build a strong relationship with Brownell and his staff moving forward.

“Yesterday in the meeting with coach he told me that he loves having a relationship with his players if they want one,” Jemison said. “He doesn’t force it.”

Jemison plans to visit Clemson at some point, but doesn’t have a date set up at this time.

“Not an exact date, no sir,” he said.

Jemison’s recruiting process has picked up steam of late following impressive play over the summer.

As a sophomore, Jemison averaged 9.3 points and 9.5 rebounds per game.
