Stratford Academy [Macon, Ga.] sophomore point guard Quintez Cephus has been to Clemson several times over the last 12 months. His first stop was for a Big Shots Tournament. He's since returned for the Brad Brownell Elite Camp and again for the football games against Georgia and Florida State.
Cephus and his teammate, sophomore guard O'Showen Williams, visited Clemson last Saturday for the Wake Forest game.
"It was fun. I had a great time. It was good seeing coach Brownell on the sidelines coaching his guys," Cephus told CUTigers, after the visit.
Clemson offered him during the fall.
"Coach Brownell came down and watched me workout. Coach [Steve] Smith came down a few days before…they offered me when coach Brownell came and he watched me workout one morning," Cephus said. "It was a great workout. And, afterward, he told coach [Jamie] Dickey."
The Tigers' offer was one he wanted.
"It was great. I was honored to have them come all the way down, just to watch me workout. I was going to work hard, because he was watching me, but it was just great for him to come," Cephus said.
For now, Mercer is his only other offer. Others have been in contact.
"After coach Brownell offered me, that's really when Virginia started calling. Davidson started calling coach Dickey. Xavier started sending stuff, and Georgia," Cephus said.
So far this season, the 6-foot-2, 170-pound point guard is averaging over 20 points per game.
