Keon Ambrose-Hylton

Clemson basketball coach Brad Brownell Friday reached into a new hotbed for college basketball recruits, Canada, with an offer to 6-8 Keon Ambrose-Hylton of Toronto. The Tigers join the likes of Florida, Illinois, Xavier, DePaul and Dayton with an offer to Ambrose-Hylton who has been impressed with what he’s heard from Brownell about his program.

“They saw me during EYBL and liked my performance, and they’ve been calling me ever since,” Ambrose-Hylton said. “Coach (Anthony) Goins expresses to me how great Clemson is. Coach Brownell is doing a great job with the players, and they’re playing style really suits me with their fast pace and going up and down the court quick.”

Ambrose-Hylton said he’s undecided about his official visits at this point. Last season he averaged 15 points and 6 rebounds per game.
