Brad Brownell picked up a commitment today from PG Nick Honor who plans to transfer from Fordham University. The rising sophomore was a member of the Atlantic 10 All Rookie team last season as a freshman.
The 5’ 9” 190 lb Honor is a former 3 star prospect out of Lake Highland Prep in Orlando, Florida. The 247 Composite Rankings listed him as the 41st best PG nationally and the 23rd best player out of the state of Florida coming out of high school. He had offers from Memphis, Dayton, UMass, and UCF, among others.
As a freshman last season at Fordham, Honor was the only player to start all 32 games and averaged 15.3 PPG on 37% shooting from the field. From beyond the arc he shot 33% and from the free throw line 82%. He also averaged 3 assists per game and 2.4 rebounds per game.
He will have to sit out a season due to transfer rules and will be eligible in the 2020-21 season.
Honor released a statement via his Twitter earlier today.
"I would like to thank the Fordham community and coaches for giving me the opportunity to play basketball. After the event occurred with my Mom I knew it was time to move closer to family and home. With that being said, I’m excited to announce that I will be continuing my academic and athletic career under coach Brownell at Clemson University #GoTigers.”
