SF Isaiah Wilkins Profile
The 6-foot-8, 200-pound prospect from Greater Atlanta Christian School [Norcross, Ga.] picked up a Clemson offer in July after a strong showing on the AAU circuit with the Georgia Stars.
"It was cool to stay the night. I chilled in Anderson because my coach has a lake house up there, so I got to stay up there. I got to watch practice two days and see campus twice," Wilkins told CUTigers during a recent interview.
The Clemson campus was impressive to the three-star prospect.
"I like how it's an actual, little own town. It's not spread out. You can walk around campus, but it's not too small, and it's not too big," he said.
Watching practice was also a plus.
"It was good. I could see where I would fit in, Wilkins said. "It was good to see how coach runs practice. Even though it was a light practice getting ready for Italy, it was still good to watch."
Clemson assistant coach Earl Grant has served as the point man in Wilkins' recruitment, but Brad Brownell has played a big role in the recruitment.
"That was fun, too. Seeing the personality of the coaches, they're good guys. They like to have fun. They joke around, but they're serious about basketball," Wilkins said.
He also spent time talking with Georgia Stars alum Jaron Blossomgame, a redshirt freshman wing for the Tigers.
"It was good to talk to him about Clemson and stuff like that," Wilkins said.
Aside from Clemson, Wilkins visited Georgia, Georgia Tech, Auburn and Georgia State over the summer. Official visit dates could be scheduled in the near future.
"Within the first week of school, I'll sit down with my coaches and set things up," he said.
Clemson, Virginia, Florida State, Mississippi State, Auburn and SMU are among the schools that have offered. With no list of favorites, Wilkins isn't sure if he'll sign in November or wait until the spring.
As a junior, he averaged 17 points, 12 rebounds, six blocks and four assists.
