PG C.J. Ford Profile
Westover High School junior point guard C.J. Ford scored 14 points and handed out 6 assists in a 61-47 win over Seventy-First.
"It was a surprise to me. I didn't know he was going to be there," Ford told CUTigers after his game.
Wednesday night's performance could have helped his cause in getting an offer from the Tigers.
"It should [help]. I'm an up tempo guard that can push the ball and get my teammates involved," Ford said. "I think he liked what he saw."
The 6-foot-1, 175-pound point guard said he keeps in touch with Miami, Virginia Tech, Butler, Virginia Commonwealth and James Madison.
Currently, Ford claims offers from Miami, East Carolina, TCU and Wichita State.
He was in Clemson last weekend for the football game against South Carolina.
"That was my very first time in Clemson," Ford said. "It's a nice atmosphere. People love their sports there. The campus is nice. I liked Littlejohn and the locker rooms. It was real nice."
An offer from Clemson would go a long way, and could result in good things for the Tigers' 2012 signing class.
"After I left the campus, I was so excited. I hoped they would offer me so I could put them right up there," Ford said.
