Clemson Basketball Recruiting

One of the ACC's best commits to Clemson

May 7, 2023

Former Syracuse point guard Joseph "Joe" Girard III (6'1, 190) committed to Clemson basketball on Sunday. Girard, a graduate senior, chose the Tigers over LSU and announced it via social media.

Girard averaged 16.4 points (sixth in ACC), 3.0 assists, and 2.8 rebounds per game in 2022-23.

On February 22 at Littlejohn Coliseum, Girard scored 11 points in a 73-91 loss to Clemson and has a career average of 14 points with highs of 19 and 23 in five games against the Tigers. 

Besides being a steady player with career averages of 13.2 points, 3.6 assists, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.3 steals, he excels as a shooter from beyond the arc (36 percent) and the free throw line (86 percent). Last season, he was fourth in the ACC in three-point percentage (38.1) and third in free throw percentage (85.7). 

Girard joins combo forward Jack Clark (NC State), wing Jake Heidbreder (Air Force), and center Bas Leyte (UNC-Greensboro) as commits from the transfer portal.
