“At 7-foot-1, Clingan possesses outstanding court vision and a willingness to pass from anywhere on the floor. His shooting touch is soft, both facing the basket and in the low post. Defensively, he is steady at protecting the rim. His unselfishness is one of his greatest traits, as he finds the open man quickly and accurately.”
Paul Biancardi
ESPN National Recruiting Director
