Default 2002 OBS, 112K, clutch replacement so soon?

I've got an OBS '02 with 112K miles on it. My sister's still driving my old '97 and I don't think that's ever had the clutch replaced. My situation is that it started with the studder when shifting into first, then more recently just generally not as responsive/ reving RPMs basically in all of the gears if I'm trying to shift faster for faster acceleration until I'm having to shift really gently and gingerly. FF last week a low grinding sound when initial shift into first and in reverse. Took it by my mechanic's, he test drove, said I def needed the clutch replaced but was perplexed by the grinding and wondered if it might have something to do with the transmission.
What I'm wondering, kind NASIOCommunity, is: am I definitely looking at a clutch replacement at 112K or could it be transmission related? I was quoted $1100 to replace the clutch (sound reasonable?) and I'm okay making this investment to get another 100K miles out of the car, but if the transmission's going I can't afford that. A buddy's telling me to punt and get rid of the car. What do you all think?
Thanks in advance.
