Graduate transfer from Michigan reportedly set to join Clemson basketball team

April 28, 2017 GMT

CLEMSON — Six weeks after the Clemson men’s basketball team played its final game of the season, the Tigers have added a new graduate transfer into the mix to help hold down the front court.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, Michigan forward Mark Donnal will suit up for Brad Brownell for his final year of eligibility, this after redshirting his freshman year and playing three seasons for the Wolverines.

At 6 foot 9 and 240 pounds, it’s possible Donnal could be used to help fill the void forward Jaron Blossomgame leaves behind, though Donnal only averaged 3.9 points, two rebounds and 12.2 minutes per game this past season. He played in all 38 games, but started none.

Clemson struggled in 2016-17 with a 17-16 overall record and a 6-12 mark in the ACC. Despite rumors that the university might be considering cutting ties with Brownell, Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich was adamant that was not the case and recently renewed Brownell’s contract through the 2021 season.

Donnal hails from Monclova, Ohio.
