Former Xavier guard Keonte Kennedy signs with TCU

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Former Xavier guard Keonte Kennedy has signed with TCU.

Horned Frogs coach Jamie Dixon announced Thursday the signings of Kennedy and forward Mickey Pearson Jr.

Kennedy averaged 2.1 points and 1.5 rebounds in 22 games as a freshman at Xavier last season. He left the team in late February and entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal. The 6-foot-5 guard from Westlake High in Austin, Texas, will have to sit out the 2019-20 season at TCU to satisfy NCAA transfer rules.

Pearson is a 6-7 forward who went to prep school at Hargrave Military after initially signing with Saint Louis. He averaged 25.5 points, 11 rebounds and 2.5 blocks during his 2017-18 senior season at John Hardin High School in Kentucky.
