Growing up in the basketball mecca of North Carolina, Parade All-American and state scoring-average leader Gabe Devoe could have stayed in-state to play college ball. But a recruiting visit to Clemson on a football game weekend turned his thoughts to Tigertown. “I loved everything about it. I’d never seen anything like it!” Gabe remembers. He also credits the Clemson family atmosphere for convincing him that playing basketball for the Tigers was what he wanted to do. “It just felt like home.” As a starting guard and member of the All-ACC Academic team, Gabe has to carefully prioritize his time among academics, practice and training. “It means so much to have support, and IPTAY provides tremendous resources for us. This amazing new facility we will be playing in, the academic services and just all the support that IPTAY provides is so important to our success at Clemson, not just for me but for my teammates as well.” Devoe credits IPTAY for helping him have a full, wellrounded college experience while he manages all the responsibilities of being a successful student-athlete. “I just want to say thank you. Thank you for everything you do for student-athletes.”
