It was the second trip to Tigertown for the Senegal native, who plays at Northwood Temple Academy in Fayetteville, N.C.

CUTigers recently caught up with Djitte's AAU coach, Curtis Wheeler.

"He enjoyed it. He liked the fact that the team won. He liked the style of play. It was good, a good visit," Wheeler said.

What stands out about Clemson?

"Early playing time and the ball goes in the post."

This season, Djitte has visited N.C. State twice, once for Duke and again UNC.

"He enjoyed those two, a lot of excitement. N.C. State played well," Wheeler said.

The 6-foot-10, 230-pound prospect has yet to schedule any official visits.

"Nothing is set up. He won't do anything until after his season, probably until after the college season," Wheeler said.

Along with Clemson, Cincinnati, UConn, Houston and N.C. State have offer Djitte.

"He's big -- 6-10, 230. He can rebound, block shots, he's only been over here [in America] for a year and a half," Wheeler said. "He's got a good understanding and a feel for the game…he's got a lot of upside and is just a really good kid.

"Not only is he a good basketball player with a lot of potential, he's a grade-A student and a grade-A person." Top Stories
