Prominent in-state prospect talks Clemson, top 5

Lower Richland’s Clyde Trapp recently cut his list of close to 20 college choices down to five.

The three-star senior shooting guard from Hopkins, S.C., released his top five schools via Twitter on Oct. 18, with Clemson, Charlotte, Georgia Tech, Rice and South Carolina comprising the group in no order.

The Clemson Insider caught up with Trapp about his favorites and why Clemson is one of them.

“I like the fact there’s multiple positions I can play in the system,” Trapp said of Clemson. “The coaches really believe I could come in and play as a freshman at multiple positions.”

Trapp visited Clemson earlier this month for the Tigers’ game against N.C. State.

“It was a great experience,” Trapp said. “The atmosphere was unreal.”

What did the 6-foot-5, 185-pounder hear from Clemson’s coaching staff while on campus?

“They really loved my versatility,” Trapp said, “and see it playing a huge role in their program.”

In addition to his top five, Trapp totes offers from Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kansas State, La Salle, Missouri, South Florida and VCU among others.

As for his top five, comfort level will be of priority in Trapp’s decision.

“Overall, every school in my top five are schools I fit,” Trapp said. “My decision will be based on where I feel the most comfortable.”

Trapp officially visited South Carolina last weekend and will officially visit Charlotte this weekend.

As a junior last season, Trapp averaged 13 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.6 steals per game.
