Godwin Ogbueze's 47 goals from 1975-79 rank eighth all-time in Clemson men's soccer history. His son, Braxton Ogbueze, recently told CUTigers about a visit that could be in the works.

"We were thinking about going to Clemson on Friday, this Friday," the 2012 United Faith Christian Academy (Charlotte, N.C.) point guard said.

"I want to see the campus, see how it is at Clemson, in South Carolina—just to see how the campus is, meet the coaches in person and talk to them even more, see the facilities and everything."

Of the schools that have offered, Ogbueze said he could remember that Clemson, Virginia, Wake Forest and Charlotte.

He said of the Tigers' offer, "It was a while back. They've been interested in me for a while now."

"I have a lot of interest in Clemson."

Ogbueze initiates his contact with the Brad Brownell coach staff through assistant coach Rick Ray.

"I talk to most of the coaches about the same. I call coach Ray and end up talking to all of them," he said.

As a sophomore at Vance High School, Ogbueze averaged 20 points a game, but scoring isn't the aspect of his game that he prides himself.

"I think I can create opportunities for my teammates, just get the ball to them in a good position," he said. "I think I'm a good scorer. I think scoring comes easily to me.

"Overall, I'm an unselfish player."

Scout.com currently rates the 5-11, 155-pound Ogbueze as a three-star point guard.
