SG Patrick Rooks Profile
Charlotte Christian School sophomore Patrick Rooks was one of several hoops prospects in for the game against the Tar Heels.
He left his home around 9:45 that morning, arrived in Clemson shortly after noon. With tickets in hand, he was seated 30 minutes before tipoff.
"I stayed and watched the warm-ups. I watched the starting lineups, because that's always a fun thing to watch," Rooks told CUTigers. "It was a really hype game. I was like going there. I've been getting recruited by them since the seventh grade, so it was a good experience."
The Littlejohn Coliseum experience is nothing new. He lived in Anderson, before moving to Charlotte.
"I've always been a Clemson fan, growing up," Rooks said. "I really like the atmosphere. My dad went to Southern Wesleyan University, and he had a lot of friends that went to Clemson."
He currently has no offers, but believes a two are on the way.
"North Florida could be offering me, and Clemson said they could be offering me, too," he said.
And there's no question as to which school tops Rooks' list.
"Right now, Clemson is my number one. Wake Forest is my second. Probably my third is Tennessee."
Rooks averages 11 points, two blocks and a steal at Charlotte Christian.
