Ravenscroft School (Raleigh, N.C.) shooting guard Anton Gill spoke to CUTigers after his most recent visit to Clemson.

"We got there a little late. After we checked in, we got there for the starting lineups, so it was loud. There were a bunch of people there. It was exciting to see that," he said.

"It was real exciting. It's kind of difficult than the other games I've been to."

The four-star also spoke with head coach Brad Brownell and assistant coach Rick Ray after the game.

"He was just asking me about how my season was going. We talked about that for a little bit," Gill said of the conversation with Ray. "We talked about anything I noticed in the game, because it's similar. Some of the things I noticed, we run a lot of the same defenses we run…he talked about how they scout different teams and we were looking at the plays and different sets they run in games.

"We were just talking about the playing style, how they like to push the ball with the point guard, how they like to get up the floor and get easy baskets, things like that."

His conversation with Brownell was as just as much in-depth.

"He really didn't have a lot of time, because he had to go to the alumni thing," Gill said. "He just asked how my season was going, asked about our record, future games that we could come to."

His first visit to Clemson was made last summer when he attended the Brad Brownell Elite Camp. He hasn't seen much of Clemson's campus, beyond a few of the athletic facilities.

"I haven't really gotten to see it. I've seen a couple of the buildings. I've seen gyms, Littlejohn and football, I've been there. It was really nice. I like the way it's set up, things like that," Gill said.

Along with the Clemson visit, he's recently visited North Carolina, N.C. State and Charlotte.

"I'm not sure, but hopefully I can get to a couple of other games, maybe a Clemson game, because that was really fun," Gill said.

East Carolina and Charlotte have offered.

"Coach Ray said they were interested, but they just told me to keep working hard, and we'll see what happens in the future," Gill said.

This season, he averages 19 points, three rebounds and three assists. Top Stories
