JUCO PG has many choices

Clemson is just one of several schools in pursuit of a former four-star point guard that's spent the past season playing JUCO ball.

PG Chris Colvin Profile

When Chris Colvin was a senior at Whitney Young Magnet High School (Chicago) in 2009, Scout.com rated him as the No. 10 point guard in the country.

Colvin went on to sign with Iowa State but left the program after one season. Relations got a little rocky with then head coach Greg McDermott. Though McDermott was no longer the Cyclones' head coach after his freshman season, Colvin opted to transfer to Palm Beach State College.

There, he plays for former Furman coach Butch Estes, who provided CUTigers with a recruiting update.

"There's an interest," Estes said of Colvin's relationship with Clemson. "There are a lot of schools, so he hasn't narrowed anything down yet. But there's a definite interest. Again, he's a very highly recruited guard."

Off the top of his head, Estes named Clemson, Miami, Arizona State, Illinois, Minnesota, Butler, West Virginia, South Florida and California as schools that are interested in Colvin. He added that there are "probably 10 more."

Estes said most schools listed above have offered.

But Clemson has not.

"As soon as the season is over, we're going to sit down once the season is over, narrow this down, invite the schools to come down here and visit with him, whoever he wants in that meeting," Estes said. "He'll decide where he wants to visit, and then he'll go make them, one, two, three, four and five— whatever he chooses to do."

Palm Beach State (25-5, 9-3 Southern Conference) finished the regular season as the No. 1 seed in the Southern Conference. The Panthers won't play again until the state quarterfinals on Mar. 3 against the No. 2 seed from the Mid-Florida conference.

Heading into Wednesday night's season finale, Colvin averaged 11 points and six assists. He scored 25 on Wednesday night.
