We caught up with former Clemson hoops standout Tanner Smith today on SportsTalk. Smith has a camp coming up in Easly next week and he just signed another pro contract to play overseas next season. We talked to him about his pro career, his lifelong dedication to charity and his thoughts about Clemson building another arena to replace Littlejohn Coliseum.
Here is our interview with Smith:
And here is info on his camp coming up next week:
Former Clemson basketball standout Tanner Smith will hold a skills camp in Easley, SC next week. Smith will host the event from Monday, July 15 through Thursday, July 18 at the Easley Recreation Center, part of the “Red” Owens Complex. The 2011 Clemson graduate will host rising third to fifth grade children from 9:00 AM to noon, and rising sixth to ninth graders from 1:00 to 4:00 PM.
The camp costs $100 for pre-registered participants and $120 at the door. Walk-ups will be accepted. For more information, visit TSskillscamp.weebly.com or EasleyRec.com. Boys and girls are both welcome.
“During my time at Clemson, I spent a great deal of time in the local community,” said Smith, who played professionally in the Netherlands last season. “With that in mind, I thought it would be great to give back by helping these kids develop skills and life lessons through basketball.”
Among Smith’s fellow instructors will be former teammates Bryan Narcisse and Andre Young. The three were part of three NCAA Tournament teams at Clemson, and were senior classmates in 2011-12.
