CUTigers learned of the commitment shortly after Sapp called Brownell and assistant coach Rick Ray to deliver the news that he would be joining Bernard Sullivan.

"I've been feeing this way for a while now. There's no need in me keep holding on when I feel like it's perfect," the Northeast High School (St. Petersburg, Fla.) senior said. "Why wait any longer?"

This past weekend's official visit to Tigertown helped to seal the deal.

"It put like the whole stamp on it," he said.

The official visit planned for Murray State was cancelled with the commitment.

The Clemson coaches happily accepted the pledge, which came around 10 p.m. Monday evening.

"They were excited," Sapp, who figures to be a shooting guard in Tigertown, said.

Several factors attracted him to Clemson.

"The environment, how the people are. I love how the coaches are. I have a great relationship with the coaching staff. I had a good time with the players. I love their style of play. Everything," he said. "I love everything about it—everything about Clemson."

As a junior at Northeast, Sapp averaged 19 points, six rebounds, five assists and two steals per game.

He then averaged 20 points for his AAU team - Team Breakdown.

Sapp, who had a wide range of college interest, said he considered Murray State, Western Kentucky, Old Dominion, Nebraska and others before deciding for the Tigers.
