PJ Hall makes it official: he is going to the NBA

Clemson Men’s Basketball fans knew PJ Hall probably wouldn’t return to the program next season but there is always a glimmer of hope.

Alas, Hall has decided to forgo his final year of eligibility and enter the NBA Draft.

Hall is from Spartanburg, South Carolina. He averaged 18.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks per game for the Tigers in 2023-24.

Multiple sources project Hall as a second-round pick in the upcoming draft.

Jon Blau confirmed on X that Hall has signed with an agent, which means he can’t change course and return to the team.

Clemson is still waiting on the final word from Chase Hunter regarding his future. Hunter is exploring his options with the NBA but can return to the team.

Clemson Women’s Basketball adds another transfer

We thought Shawn Poppie was done adding talent to Clemson Women’s Basketball’s roster. We were wrong.

Raven Thompson has committed to the Tigers. She is a junior from Atlanta, Georgia.

She played for Poppie last season at UT Chattanooga and was first-team All-Southern Conference as a sophomore.

Thompson’s addition brings the roster to 14 players.
