Evans returns to Clemson

One of the top point guards in the state, regardless of age, was in Clemson last month for the Brad Brownell Elite Camp.

Legacy Charter [Greenville] rising junior Jawun Evans has been to Clemson several times over the last year. The elite camp was his most recent visit.

"It was good. I enjoyed the camp. There were a lot of good guards there, the 2s and 3s, like combo guards," Evans told CUTigers in a recent interview.

Working with Brownell and his assistants was a plus for the point guard, who had 11 triple-doubles during his sophomore season of high school ball.

"I enjoyed it. It kind of showed me what kind of plays they run," Evans said.

What was their message?

"They just told me, every drill you do, just go hard. If you mess up, it's OK, just go hard."

Two things, in particular, stick out about Clemson.

"The way they push the ball up and down the court and their defensive pressure."

In addition to his offers from Clemson and Cincinnati, Evans has added offers from DePaul and SMU. His offer total will probably jump after this month's evaluation period. He'll be playing with SC Raptors Elite.

This weekend, Evans will head to Augusta for the Peach State Showcase. He'll play in tournaments in Atlanta and Orlando later this month.

As a sophomore, Evans scored 26, dished out 11 assists and grabbed eight rebounds per game. The 6-foot, 165-pound point guard has no list of favorites.

"I'm just trying to get further along into and get some more [offers]," Evans said.

One major factor will be considered.

"Just the way the school is. What type of school it is," he said, "If it's a good environment."
