Ex-Texas Tech forward Khavon Moore transferring to Clemson

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Former Texas Tech forward Khavon Moore says he’s headed to Clemson to play basketball with the Tigers.

The 6-foot-7 freshman from Macon, Georgia, posted a picture of himself in a Tigers uniform on Twitter with “Committed” across the image.

Moore was considered a top-60 college prospect coming in front Westside High, but played only two minutes as he continued to rehab a leg injury from his final prep season. Texas Tech, which reached the NCAA championship game before losing the title to Virginia, had planned to apply for a medical redshirt for Moore.

Clemson will also have that option. Moore would have to sit out a year due to NCAA rules before playing for the Tigers.

Moore is Clemson’s third transfer this offseason, joining former Tulsa guard Curran Scott and ex-Fordham guard Nick Honor.
