Scott Spencer Signs NLI with Clemson

CLEMSON, S.C. — Head coach Brad Brownell and his staff added to the Clemson men’s basketball roster late in the day on Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period. Scott Spencer, a 6-foot-6 wing from Suffolk, Va., signed a national letter of intent to play for the Tigers beginning in 2016-17. Spencer is listed as the nation’s No. 24 small forward prospect by ESPN.

“Scott is a big wing with excellent long-range shooting ability,” Brownell said. “He had an outstanding summer on the AAU circuit and really stood out to us because of his ability to make shots and play with a high motor. He comes from a highly successful prep school program under Cade Lemcke. He is a terrific kid from a great family who we think will be a good addition to our program.”

Spencer played three seasons at Nansemond River High School in his hometown of Suffolk, averaging 16.1 points and 5.2 rebounds per game as a junior. He shot over 40 percent from three-point range as a first-team all-region performer for the Warriors.

He reclassified and played the 2014-15 season at Blue Ridge School in St. George, Va. There, he led the Barons to a 14-2 overall record and state championship, while earning first-team all-state honors from the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association.
