Men’s Basketball Inks Recruit

April 8, 1998

CLEMSON, SC — Dustin Braddick, a 6-4, 190-pound wing from Charleston, SC has signed a national letter of intent with the Clemson basketball program. Braddick is the second member of the Clemson signee class for 1998. Rick Barnes’ program signed 6-9 forward Chuckie Gilmore last November.

Braddick led North Charleston High to a 25-4 record this past season by averaging 15.6 points, 7.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game. The two-time all-state selection scored over 1000 points and collected over 500 rebounds in his career under Coach Jody Rabon.

Braddick, brother of former College of Charleston player Derrick Braddick, was a three-time all-conference performer and the High School Sports Report 4A Player of the Year in 1996-97 when he averaged 14.4 points per game. His high scoring game this past season was 30 points against James Island.

“We are very excited to have Dustin Braddick join our program,” said Clemson Coach Rick Barnes. “Dustin is extremely versatile with great size and strength for a perimeter player. We look forward to him helping our team in many areas.”

Gilmore, a 6-9, 260-pounder from 71st High School in Fayetteville, NC averaged 18.9 points, 10.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocked shots per game during his senior year. He led 71st High School to a 28-1 record with the only loss coming in the state tournament. That team was ranked second in the state most of the season. Gilmore has already been chosen for the North Carolina East-West Game in July. He was named All-Cape Fear and the conference player of the year.
