Clemson basketball roster 2024-25: PJ Hall, Chase Hunter return or is it Ian Schieffelin’s team?


CLEMSON — Clemson basketball’s run in the NCAA Tournament was a success, reaching the Elite Eight for the first time since 1980. The Tigers’ journey ended Saturday as it fell 89-82 to Alabama in Los Angeles at Arena.

Entering the offseason, the Tigers (24-12) will await decisions from PJ Hall, Chase Hunter and Jack Clark as all three can return for one more season.

Clemson will lose Joseph Girard III because of expiring eligibility but will return the ACC’s Most Improved Player, Ian Schieffelin, for his senior season and a wealth of rising juniors who can become starters next season. The team also will add three incoming freshmen and potentially transfers.

Here are the players who are leaving and returning for the Tigers’ 2024-25 season:

Will PJ Hall, Chase Hunter, Jack Clark return for Clemson in 2024-25?

Hall, who made All-ACC first team after being tied for second in scoring average (18.8) in the conference, has a fifth year of eligibility because he was a freshman during the COVID 2020-21 season. The Spartanburg native can test the pro waters like he did last year and return to Clemson for one more season, or he can enter the NBA draft.

“It’s been a great year, and we’ll see how the summer goes, but I also don’t want to overstay my welcome,” Hall said earlier this season.

Hunter has a sixth year of eligibility remaining because of his redshirt and COVID years. He was Clemson’s third-leading scorer this season and stepped up during March Madness, averaging 17.8 points per game.

Then, there’s Clark, who is unsure if he has an extra year of eligibility. He played nine out of 31 games in his freshman season at La Salle before a lower-body injury, which landed him a medical redshirt the following season. The Pennsylvania native played during the COVID 2020-21 season, too, which allows a potential seventh year.
