PF Brice Johnson Profile
The rising senior power forward joined the South Carolina Ravens for the Big Shots Clemson tournament. Last Saturday, CUTigers.com caught up with Johnson, who's taking a wide-open approach to his recruitment.
"I was trying to [take visits] over the summer, but camps and AAU kind of clogged it up," Johnson said. "I'm going to do it during football season."
Though the Edisto High School (Cordova) four-star didn't name specific schools, Clemson figures to be a destination.
That's what Earl Grant regularly pushes for. The Tigers' second-year assistant coach serves as the point man in Johnson's recruitment.
"He's cool. He's from Charleston, right down the street from Orangeburg, so I'm real cool with him," Johnson said. "He comes and sees me all the time. I talk to him whenever I can."
Florida is also a possibility. Contact with the Gators slowed down shortly after assistant coach Larry Shyatt accepted the head coach position at Wyoming.
"They're calling me and stuff, so it's picking back up," Johnson said. "It was slowing down there for a moment."
Shyatt's replacement, Norm Roberts, is now in contact.
"He's pretty cool. I just met him, but he's pretty cool, from what I can tell so far," Johnson said.
South Carolina is also a possibility. Mike Boynton Jr. serves as the Gamecocks' primary recruiter for Johnson.
"I haven't talked to him in a while. He called me one time, but I haven't talked to him since," Johnson said.
The Scout.com No. 19 power forward sees Clemson as an intriguing option.
"I could come in and start, and they play in the ACC," he said. "Plus, it's a good school. It'd be a good degree."
Clemson, South Carolina, Florida and Georgia Southern have offered.
