State's top junior enjoys Clemson visit
Posted Oct 19, 2011
Four-star shooting guard Sindarius Thornwell visited Tigertown earlier this month when the Clemson football team played Boston College.
But that wasn't the main attraction for the Lancaster High School junior. Thornwell enjoyed the open gym session with the other visitors and current members of the Clemson basketball team.
"My team, we went undefeated. We didn't lose," he recently said in an interview with
. "I like the way they play. They get up and down. I don't like playing in like a Princeton-style offense. I like attacking the basket. They let me attack the basket and play my style."
Andre Young, Catalin Baicu, Milton Jennings and another visiting prospect teamed up with the
No. 8 shooting guard in the class of 2013.
"Bobo, he's getting better. Andre, you can tell he's more of the leader of the team," Thornwell said. "K.J. McDaniels, he can jump. He's super athletic. Bernard Sullivan, he's very versatile. He can play the three or the four."
What was the message from
and his staff?
"They were telling me I looked good playing with the team. Every time I come to Clemson, I play good. They'll try to throw little hints at that," Thornwell said.
Along with Clemson, South Carolina, N.C. State, Miami, Virginia Tech and Tennessee have offered.
"I like Clemson, but I don't have any leaders. Everybody is the same," Thornwell said.
The Tigers have plenty of positives working in their favor.
"It's close to home. It's all about Clemson there. Most schools, there can be other colleges in the town. At Clemson, it's just Clemson," he said. "The fans, I love the fans. They're 100 percent Clemson fans."
Thornwell will visit South Carolina in November when the Clemson football team visits Columbia. Trips to Virginia Tech and Wake Forest are also on the horizon, but no dates have been set.
As a sophomore at Lancaster, Thornwell averaged 22 points, six rebounds and four assists.
