More on 2012 men’s basketball recruit Anthony Clemmons
AnnArbor.com (never a bastion of reliable reporting, but I double-checked this) points out that, although Clemmons is Murphy’s first recruit of the class of 2012 — in fact, his first high school recruit to EMU — he won’t be EMU’s only new player to hit the floor in 2012. Forward Daylen Harrison and power forward Glenn Bryant will both sit out the 2011-12 season after transferring from Wyoming and Arkansas, respectively. Center DaShonte Riley might also be sitting out the 2011-12 season if the NCAA doesn’t approve his waiver request.
Often overlooked but certainly not unappreciated by those who play with him — or against him — 6-1 Lansing Sexton senior Anthony Clemmons has committed to Eastern Michigan. Strong, physical and athletic, he’s a glue player at guard who will defend, set up the offense and is good at creating his own shot when he looks to do so. Oh, and he can dunk, as evidenced by one of the summer’s best throw-downs in Las Vegas last month. Clemmons is the first non-transfer, high school recruit for new coach Rob Murphy and his staff at EMU, and is the kind of hard worker with a winning pedigree that you want as a foundation piece of your program for four years.
