Prominent in-state prospect set for Clemson official

Clyde Trapp, one of the top prospects in South Carolina, has made a change of plans.

The Clemson Insider confirmed that the shooting guard from Lower Richland High School in Hopkins, S.C., will take his official visit to Clemson beginning tomorrow instead of an originally planned visit to Georgia Tech this weekend.

Trapp will arrive on campus tomorrow night for Clemson’s exhibition game against Lander and stay through Clemson’s football game against Syracuse on Saturday.

Trapp also visited Clemson for the Tigers’ game against N.C. State on Oct. 15.

Clemson was one of the schools Trapp included in his top five list that he released via Twitter on Oct. 19, along with Charlotte, Georgia Tech, Rice and South Carolina.

The Tigers have not offered Trapp as of yet, but the potential for an offer this weekend is there.

Trapp has also officially visited Rice, South Carolina and most recently Charlotte last weekend.

The 6-foot-5, 185-pounder has offers from Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kansas State, La Salle, Missouri, South Florida and VCU among others.

A decision from Trapp is expected this month.

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

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

Former Clemson standout guard Ed Scott, who also hails from Lower Richland, is Trapp’s AAU coach.
