PF Bernard Sullivan Profile
It didn't take long for Brad Brownell and his staff at Clemson to identify one of the top priorities in the 2011 class. In a recent conversation, Davidson County Extended Day (Lexington, N.C.) power forward Bernard Sullivan told CUTigers that it took about a week for Brownell's staff to start recruiting Sullivan.
He recently visited Clemson for first-hand look at the new regime.
"I like the new staff. I like the atmosphere," Sullivan said. "I just need to see, probably around when the season starts, I'll be able to see how their new system is and what they do. Right now, I really have a positive from Clemson since my visit."
Before Oliver Purnell left for DePaul, Sullivan was close to giving his pledge to Clemson.
"They were my favorite before they left," Sullivan said. "I've been going there since about the eighth or ninth grade. I liked everything about the coaching staff. That was definitely my favorite school. I was planning to commit, then he left."
Now, it's a different story.
"No favorites right now. I'm wide open," he said.
Along with the offer from Clemson, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Davidson and Charlotte have all sent offers Sullivan's way.
"Now, I'm trying to take until September. My recruiting has really opened up all of a sudden I guess because I've been playing well," he said.
Sullivan has also visited Wake Forest and Duke this summer, too.
He'll be looking out for several areas while going through the recruiting process over the next several months.
"The program, coaching staff, if I get along with the players I'm going to play with and the academics as well," Sullivan said. "I want to get a good education."
Assistant coach Rick Ray serves as Sullivan's main recruiter.
