Clemson basketball snags fourth transfer of offseason

Head coach Brad Brownell and Clemson basketball secured another player through the transfer portal next season, adding forward Myles Foster to join the squad next season. The transfer was first reported by Tobias Bass of The Athletic. 

The Tigers add a veteran leader into their frontcourt, adding a player with four years of experience after spending three seasons at Monmouth and last season with Illinois State, averaging 12.4 points and 8.1 rebounds per game last season off of a 52.5% shooting percentage from the field. 

The Brooklyn native will join current Tigers Ian Schieffelin and Chauncey Wiggins for the forward position next season. Foster has plenty of comparisons in his performances last year to Schieffelin, especially, notching eight double-doubles last season, all being in points and rebounds. The addition could help add extra reinforcement to the rebounding game next season. 

Foster joins Viktor Lakhin, Jaeden Zackery and Christian Reeves as the fourth transfer of the offseason for Clemson, as Brownell will have plenty of new faces next season at Littlejohn Coliseum, in addition to adding three freshmen to the roster. 

Assuming that Clemson guard Chase Hunter returns for one final year, the Illinois State transfer will fill the final scholarship for the Tigers next season. 

Foster has one year of eligibility left and will look to help bring Clemson back to the NCAA Tournament next season.
