Lancaster High School sophomore Sindarius Thornwell has received offers from Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia Southern, Charlotte and Tennessee State.

Clemson, South Carolina, LSU and Louisville are showing the most interest. All of the ACC schools, except for North Carolina and Duke, are showing high interest, too.

Clemson assistant coach Earl Grant is Thornwell's primary recruiter to Tigertown.

"I haven't talked to him a couple of weeks, but my high school coach talked to him [last Tuesday]," Thornwell recently told

Though Thornwell does not claim any favorites, several factors will be considered as he continues through the recruiting process.

"Academics, who produces more NBA players and my playing time," he said.

As a sophomore at Lancaster, Thornwell averaged 22 points, six rebounds and four assists.

The last time Thornwell was in Clemson on a visit was for the Florida State game in January. He was back in Tigertown this past weekend for the Big Shots tournament.

Thornwell, who plays for Team United (Charlotte, N.C.), is teammates with Kennedy Meeks, a sophomore center from West Charlotte. Meeks, another a high priority on the Tigers' 2013 recruiting board, played in the tournament at Clemson.

Clemson associate head coach Rick Ray watched Meeks workout during the recent evaluation period.
