6-4 2G Clyde Trapp Jr. of Lower Richland picked up another major offer Tuesday night from USC coach Frank Martin. The Gamecocks join Georgia, Georgia Tech, Charlotte, Missouri, Kansas State, Rice and South Florida on Trapp’s offer list and while he’s happy about having them all, getting one from the hometown school was special.
“It’s like every South Carolina kid’s dream to get an offer and be able to play in front of their family,” Trapp said. “I feel honored. I really like Frank. He’s a great guy.”
Trapp averaged 13 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists per game last season. His coach, Caleb Gaither, said he’s an excellent shooting and passer and distributes the ball well to teammates. Trapp feels playing with the framework of the team is his strength and Martin recognized that.
“He told me that he knows I can score the ball but what really grabbed his attention was that I make my teammates better and my passing ability. That’s where I fit in most. I get my teammates involved and I sort of feed off them. When they start going, we all start going. It’s a scary site.”
Trapp has scheduled an official visit to Georgia for October 7th and he tentatively is set to visit Georgia Tech two weeks later. USC also is a possibility for an official visit. He and his family were there two weeks ago to meet with Martin and he said he might go to Saturday’s football game.
Trapp said he does not have a favorite and he’s planning to sign in November at this point.
