Clemson was represented by associate head coach Rick Ray. He was by West Charlotte High School to see Kennedy Meeks on the first day of the recent evaluation period.

Wake Forest, Louisville, Boston College, South Carolina, N.C. State, Xavier, Charlotte, Liberty and Gardner Webb also stopped through.

"I don't know anything about them really," Meeks told CUTigers.com about Clemson. "I played up there last weekend in a tournament."

He was with Team United at the Big Shots tournament in Clemson.

"When I walked into the gym, it just felt like it would be a good atmosphere, like the crowd is into the game all the time, the coaches are good," Meeks said. "It's a good environment."

A few things will be considered as he moves through the recruiting process.

"If they feed the ball to the big man, if they play an inside, out game" he said. "A lot of pick and rolls—stuff like that."

Which schools are sticking out right now?

"Georgetown, Virginia Tech, Xavier, North Carolina, Clemson and UNC-Charlotte," Meeks said.

The Scout.com three-star prospect has already received offers from Virginia Tech, South Carolina, Miami, UMass and North Florida.

He's rated as the No. 4 center in the class of 2013.

As a sophomore, he averaged 13 points and 12 rebounds.
