Brad Brownell and Earl Grant conducted an in-home visit on Monday.
"It was good. It was just with my AAU coach and my parents, all of us. It was good. We just talked about the academics, the campus, all that stuff," Ajukwa said.
After Clemson was South Carolina. The Gamecocks finished second.
Frank Martin had an in-home visit on Wednesday.
"I like coach Martin and I like what he has to say. I like the way he coaches," Ajukwa said.

As a junior, Ajukwa averaged 24 points, nine rebounds, three assists, three steals and three blocks.
Since Clemson's offer, South Carolina, Boston College and Virginia Tech offered.
