Clanton Pens The Paper

Take Keith Clanton off the board. The Floridian isn't going far from home as the drama of the final day of the signing period continues.

Scratch another big man off the board.

Keith Clanton, a 6-foot-8 power forward out of Orlando (Fla.) Christian committed to Central Florida over South Florida Wednesday during a signing announcement.

Reggie Kohn, a former college player and Clanton's head coach, sees a strong future for his big man who averaged 21 points, 13 rebounds and 3 blocks as a junior during a state championship campaign.

"I think he's a very skilled big man, one of the guys that can rebound the ball and push it himself," Kohn said. "He can trail the break and play the four spot in college like a three man.

"I think the biggest thing that Keith Clanton does by far is that he really understands the game. I think Keith has a great feel for the game and a great feel for where people are on the court."
