PG Jordan Roper Profile
The Tigers' second-year coach offered Irmo High School junior Jordan Roper on Thursday afternoon, and it was one that the 6-foot, 170-pound prospect had been looking forward to getting.
"I was definitely excited. They're one of my favorite schools. They're in my top 10. I was really excited," Roper told CUTigers.com on Thursday.
How was the offer made?
"I came into fourth block basketball class and coach [Tim] Whipple told me to call coach Brownell around 2:30. I got in touch with him," Roper said. "We talked for a while and he let me know that they were going to offer me a full scholarship."
The Clemson offer now accompanies several mid-majors. VCU, Tulane, UNC-Asheville, Tennessee State, High Point and Presbyterian had already offered.
Roper currently claims Clemson and VCU as his two favorites, but he doesn't plan on making a decision in the near future.
"I haven't gotten a chance to go on any visits [lately]. I plan on doing that this summer," he said.
As a junior for AAAA state champion Irmo, Roper averaged 20 points, three assists and three rebounds.
Clemson assistant coach Earl Grant serves as his primary recruiter for Clemson.
