The Clemson Tigers have added a Top 100 prospect from the Class of 2006. David Potter, a D.C. area native and current junior at Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy, committed to the Tigers on Tuesday.
The 6-foot-6 Potter who is a talented and offensively gifted small forward who ran with D.C. Assault last summer.
Last weekend, Potter was on his official visit to Clemson and came away extremely impressed. "It was nice and I liked the atmosphere, the fans and the players," Potter said. "I've known Kevin Nickelberry for a while and I felt comfortable."
Charlotte, Maryland, Georgetown, Wake Forest and Florida were some schools that were recruiting him but the Tigers were committed to him. "Clemson wanted me the most and showed more interest in me and that was definitely the best situation."
Potter gets a unique perspective on the game from an unlikely source: a referee. His mother officiates high school basketball. "She tells me stuff that I can and can't do, like new rules. When I get into the game I know what to expect and how to treat the refs."
He also knows how to score and he's got a favorite way to get points. "My strength is going to the basket and drawing a foul," Potter said. "I like going to the basket a lot. I play hard and I'm not selfish. I'd rather give a nice pass than be selfish and try to take it all the way. My teammates enjoy playing with me."
And surely Clemson and Oliver Purnell will be glad to add another Top 100 talent to their mix.
