Officially a good weekend

Phillip Nolan, one of the top priorities left on Clemson's 2012 recruiting board, spent this past weekend on an official visit to Tigertown.

The Riverside University High School [Milwaukee, Wisc.] senior power forward arrived on Friday and left on Sunday.

"I enjoyed myself. I had a pretty good time," he told on Sunday.

What stood out the most to the three-star prospect?

"I enjoyed the [Rock The 'John], how everybody was, it just seemed like one big family," Nolan said.

Associate head coach Rick Ray, who serves as the Tigers' primary recruiter for Nolan, spent plenty of time with the No. 29 power forward in the class of 2012. The two have known each other since Ray was on the Purdue staff.

"It was pretty fun getting to catch with him, instead of just talking on the phone, and just seeing him in person," Nolan said.

Head coach Brad Brownell had a one-on-one with Nolan before the weekend ended.

"He told me how I would be a great addition to the team, how bad they wanted me at Clemson," Nolan said.

The official visit was his second. Nolan's already been to Oregon. A trip to Minnesota could be in the works, though nothing has been scheduled. And, because of proximity, he can visit Marquette as often as he likes.

Who leads?

"I haven't even talked to my grandparents about it. right now, I wouldn't know," Nolan said.

Family's going to play a big part in his decision.

"My family definitely has to approve of it," he said.

The decision will be based on that, plus one other factor.

"I just want to keep building a relationship with the coaches. That's going to be one of the most important things," Nolan said. < br> Top Stories
