Packed into a busy 'Solid Orange' weekend built around the Tigers' Orange-White football game, Clemson men's basketball coach Brad Brownell and his staff will be hoping to work some magic on a pair of big men who'll be on campus in advance of the April signing period.

Sidy Mohamed Djitte, a 6-10, 230-pound center from Northwood Temple Academy in Fayetteville, N.C. will be making his second visit to Clemson this weekend.

The Tigers will also get a visit from Ibrahim Djambo, a 6-10, 205-pound forward from Three Rivers Community College in Poplar Bluff, Missouri.

Both players are African: Djitte from Senegal and Djambo from Mali, and both have been in the United States for two years.

Djitte, who first visited Clemson in January, is rated as a three-star prospect by Rivals, Scout and 247Sports. He also has offers from UConn, Memphis, Wake Forest, N.C. State, Old Dominion, Cincinnati and Auburn.

One of Djitte's top games last season came against Fayetteville Academy, in which he had 26 points, 25 rebounds and seven blocked shots.

Djambo averaged 18 points and 9.3 rebounds per game as a sophomore at Three Rivers. He is a 76 percent free throw shooter, and made 36 percent of his three-point attempts.

Djambo also has offers from Kansas State, Saint Louis, Loyola Chicago, Southern Illinois and Washington State.

Following the transfer from rising junior Bernard Sullivan, Clemson has just two post players on scholarship - 6-11 center Landry Nnoko and 6-8 forward Josh Smith. Both are rising sophomores.
