Clemson adds Oral Roberts grad transfer to basketball team
White announced he was joining the Tigers on Instagram. Because he missed a season due to injury, White would have two years to play for Clemson. The 230-pounds White is a strong post player the Tigers were missing last season despite making the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament.
Forwards Mark Donnal and Elijah Thomas were the tallest players on the roster last year at 6-9.
White, of Ames, Iowa, averaged 10 points and nine rebounds last season. He posted his decision along with a graduation photo, saying the ”new journey will be full of challenges and growth.”
He started 29 games and had double-figure rebounds in 16 games for Oral Roberts last season.
