Gabe Wiznitzer

2021 6-11 Gabe Wiznitzer now has a chance to come back home for his college basketball. He grew up in Walhalla before going off to attend the Christ School in Arden, NC. This season he will play for Hargrave Prep, VA. Having grown up so close to Clemson, he and the staff are very familiar with one another. They took another step forward in their relationship this week when Tigers’ coach Brad Brownell offered while Wiznitzer was in for an unofficial visit.

”I was really excited to get the offer,” Wiznitzer said. “I love that it’s super close to where I live and I really like the coaches I like how they utilize their bigs and will definitely continue to build my relationship with the coaches.”

Wiznitzer is building an impressive offer sheet. Along with Clemson, he has LSU, Nebraska, Penn State, TCU, Marist, St. John’s and Iona. Clemson has a major place at the table with him right now.

“It’s definitely one of my favorite ones,” he said. I really don’t have them ranked, but I’d say it’s in my top three from the offers I have now.”

Wiznitzer said one reason Clemson resonates with him is the style of basketball Brownell employs, especially involving the bigs.

“They do a lot of dribble hand-offs and ball screens where the big has to make reads whether to roll, pop or keep the ball on the dribble hand-off,” Wiznitzer said. “I really like how the big has to make reads and has the freedom to play anywhere.”

Wiznitzer also has visited Georgia Tech and he wants to visit Nebraska, Penn State and some of his other offers. He’d also like to check out Michigan State. He has no timetable for a decision.
