RJ Campbell, a 6-foot-8 power forward out of Greenville (SC) Southside High, took an unofficial visit to Clemson on Saturday (Sept. 16) and spoke with D1Vision about how it went.

“The visit at Clemson was great, it was a great experience,” Campbell told D1Vision. “Clemson is definitely a place I would love to play ball at. The campus was great, the stadium was nice, and Clemson has a lot of history for basketball and football. That’s something I would love to be apart of.”

Although basketball is a key component in determining his future direction, education is also important for Campbell.

“(Coach Steve Smith) was telling me all about the academics,” Campbell continued. “I was telling him I want to go to school to be an engineer and he was telling me how they have one of the best engineering programs, so that really caught my eye.”

The opportunity to work on his game, despite the time of the day, also caught Campbell’s attention.

“He was telling me how they assign each player a manager/trainer, so you can call any day to tell them that you want to get in the gym to get shots up and workout,” Campbell stated. “That was a great thing to know for myself. The gym and the campus were my favorite aspects of the visit because they redid the gym and it looks way different. The campus is just nice and they also remodeled some parts.”

Campbell is looking to schedule multiple unofficial visits in the coming months.

“My recruiting is going great so far,” Campbell reported. “I will be on campus for an unofficial visit to Georgia Tech, Florida State, and Miami this Fall. I will also be on North Carolina-Greensboro’s campus September 20th. NC Greensboro offered me a full scholarship during last Summer’s AAU season.”

As far as recruiting interest, Campbell is expecting several schools on campus over the next couple of weeks.

“USC Upstate and Furman will be attending my workouts at school this week coming up,” Campbell said. “Clemson will be attending my workouts the week after next. I also have interest from all the schools I named including Mercer, College of Charleston, and Middle Tennessee State.”

Last season as a sophomore at Southside High, Campbell averaged 16.2 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 4.8 assists per game.
