Clemson basketball coach Brad Brownell had two scholarships to work with for the 2020 recruiting season. One of those was taken Wednesday when 6-10 PJ Hall of Dorman publicly announced his commitment to the Tigers. The second was accounted for on Thursday morning when 6-7 Olivier-Maxence Prosper of Quebec announced a commitment to the Tigers on Twitter.
Prosper attends the NBA Academy Latin America in Mexico City. He recently reclassified from the 2021 recruiting class.
This past summer, Prosper played in five games for the Academy and he averaged nearly 17 points and 6 rebounds per game. He shot 38% from three and made 9-12 free throw attempts. Prosper’s AAU club was Brookwood Elite in Canada.
His coach there, Joey McKitterick, said Clemson is getting a fine person and player in Prosper.
“As a kid he is an A-1 kid, charismatic, a natural leader, hard worker,” McKitterick said. “He is a natural fit for the ACC. He can guard multiple position and plays with a great motor that leads him to manufacture points. He has the ability to score from all 3 levels.”
According to 247Sports, Prosper took an official visit to Clemson earlier this month. He also had Cal, Baylor and Stanford high up on his list.
