Just over a week after it was reported that San Francisco sophomore guard Avry Holmes would be transferring, it’s been reported that he’s found a new school. According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com Holmes has decided to transfer to Clemson, where he’ll have two seasons of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2014-15 campaign per NCAA transfer rules.
Holmes averaged 12.5 points and 3.1 assists per game in 2013-14 for the Dons, and his addition provides Clemson head coach Brad Brownell with a needed boost on the perimeter. Rod Hall, who started all 36 games at the point last season, will be a senior in 2014-15 and Jordan Roper (13 starts in 35 games played) will be a junior.
Hall averaged 9.7 points and 4.0 assists per game last season, with Roper adding 7.4 points per contest. Clemson will also lose Demarcus Harrison after the 2014-15 season, with Roper and Patrick Rooks (redshirted last season due to injury) among the players who will have eligibility remaining when Holmes becomes available for game action.
Unfortunately for Clemson Holmes won’t be available immediately, as he would help them account for the production lost due to the departure of leading scorer and rebounder K.J. McDaniels (17.1 ppg, 7.1. rpg).
