SG Brandon Reed Profile
CUTigers spoke to Reed as he was heading back home from his visit to Clemson.
"I think Clemson is a nice school. It has a nice campus, a family feel to it, as far as the basketball team goes. The coaches are very nice people," he said. "I enjoyed my trip. I think it was good."
He decided to leave Arkansas State for one reason and it wasn't along the lines of a Seth Curry-like transfer from Liberty to Duke.
"My grandma had a stroke just recently," Reed said. "I'm close with her. I grew up with her. Actually I grew up in her house. I felt I needed to be home. That was really the main reason.
"When I got my release form, the high-major schools started calling and I started answering. That's a plus added on, being able to be close to home, but also to be playing at the highest level."
"Clemson called as soon as I got my release. I've been talking to them since I was released."
The trip to Tigertown was his second of three official visits. He visited Georgia Tech on June 1, and will hit Tennessee Saturday and Sunday.
"After I leave Tennessee, I'm going to spend time with my family and find out which school would be best for me," Reed said.
It won't take long for a decision after the trip to Knoxville.
"I'll probably make a decision on Tuesday or Wednesday," he said.
Clemson recruited him out of Whitefield Academy, but didn't offer. Besides Arkansas State, his other offers were from Nebraska, Colorado, Richmond, George Mason and Georgia State.
"It was on and off," Reed said of Clemson's recruitment while he was in high school. "Oliver Purnell contacted me a couple of times but he never offered me."
