Excited to announce that I have decided to finish my last year of college hoops and pursue my second masters degree at the University of Missouri Kansas City. I want to thank Coach Brownell and the staff for the opportunity to be a Clemson tiger. I also want to thank my teammates for taking me in the way they did this year, I made relationships that will last a lifetime. With that being said I’m ready for this new journey and the opportunity that is in front of me. Coach Donlon, lets get busy!

Javan White visited Buffalo last week as a potential grad transfer from Clemson. In his one year there he was a reserve to all-ACC big man Elijah Thomas, averaging 2 points and 2 rebounds per game, but was expected to step into a prominent role next year. Prior to his time at Clemson, he nearly averaged a double-double as a sophomore at Oral Roberts, averaging 10.2 points and 9.0 rebounds per game. White is an athletic rim running big man that would fit well in Buffalo’s system, and could help replace the interior production lost between graduating seniors Nick Perkins and Montell McRae. While the 3-ball is not White’s calling card, he was 6 for 15 (40%) in his sophomore year at Oral Roberts, suggesting that he could be capable of stepping in and knocking down open shots in Buffalo’s free-flowing offense. If White is to commit to Buffalo, he’d likely step in as a day one starter, capable of putting up double-doubles like he did in the Summit League.
