A number of prospects broke out in July. Who stood taller than the rest?
Big man a big priority
Along with the Clemson contingent, coaches from Florida State, Central Florida, SMU and Miami have stopped Montverde Academy near Orlando to check in on Landry Nnoko.
"It was the head coach and assistant head coach [from Clemson]," Nnoko told CUTigers.com, referring to Brad Brownell and associate head coach Rick Ray.
Ray serves as the point man in Clemson's recruitment of the 6-foot-10, 215-pound center.
"I don't really know a lot about them. I know that the weather there is kind of the same as the weather here," Nnoko said. "I like the coaches."
The Cameroon native holds offers from Clemson, Florida, Louisville and UCF, among others.
"I don't really know what schools I'm going to visit now," he said.
Nnoko said he plans to make his decision early. A few factors will be considered as he works towards it.
"A nice school for me that has a nice basketball program," he said.
The senior was selected to attend Montverde Academy by Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, a native of Cameroon and alumnus of the school in Montverde, Fla.
In an April interview with Source Hoops, Florida Rams Black AAU coach Jeff Simmons spoke about Nnoko.
"Landry will really open some eyes this spring and summer. He's a long and athletic big that runs well and is a very good shot blocker. His offense is improving to the point where he is a threat to score on the block if not double-teamed."
Scout.com lists Nnoko as a three-star prospect and the No. 24 center in the class of 2012.
