Ryan Kelly Relaxes; Clemson gets Hill

August 10, 2008

Ryan Kelly (PF, 6’10”, 2009) has played a lot of ball recently, so he’s relaxing at the beach as he mulls over his eventual college destination.

As we discussed previsouly, Kelly recently trimmed his list:

Last week, Kelly trimmed his list of potential colleges to six.

The finalists are (in no particular order, he stressed): North Carolina, Duke, Wake Forest, Georgetown, Vanderbilt and Notre Dame.

“They are all great academic institutions, and I believe I would fit in well at any of them whether I was playing athletics or not,” Kelly said.

Kelly has really come on over the past few months into a player with a shot at a pro career. I am not sure which school Kelly would fit into the best.

Tobias Harris

Tobias Harris (PF,6’8″,2010) Has so many offers that it would be unfair to say that he’s primarily an ACC target, but with offers reported from Maryland, Virginia, Wake and Miami, it’s safe to say he’s on the ACC radar.

Clemson gets commit from Donte Hill

Donte Hill (SG, 6’5″, 2009) has committed to the Clemson Tigers. Hill is listed as a SG on several sites but at this point plays more like a SF. Several places list him at SG because his height is listed between 6’3″ and 6’5″, so the ‘formula’ would seem to dictate that if he’s 6’3″, he’ll play SG and if he’s 6’5″, he’ll play SF.

Right now, I’d say he’s a SF, but he still has another year to go to develop his guard skills. He can handle the ball very well, especially in transition.
