According to the Greenville (S.C.) News, Clemson received a verbal commitment from Akin Akinbala on Thursday night.
Akinbala is a 6-9, 205-pound native of Nigeria playing at the East Greenwich (CT) Brunswick School.
"Akin is very athletic, long and lean and an extraordinary shot blocker," Brunswick coach Gregg Dobbs told the Greenville News. "The book on him is that his offensive skills are raw, but that he plays more like he's 6-foot-11."
He is ranked No. 197 in the Class of 2002 by PrepStars.com. The Tigers already have a commitment from Raleigh (NC) Leesville Road point guard Shawan Robinson.
