Clemson starting guard Nick Honor enters transfer portal

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson starting guard Nick Honor has entered the NCAA transfer portal and plans to play his final college season elsewhere.

Team spokesman Benjamin Winterrowd confirmed Honor’s decision Tuesday. Honor, a fourth-year junior, has played the past two seasons for the Tigers. He will have one year of eligibility left as a graduate transfer.

Honor is a 5-foot-10 guard from Orlando, Florida, who started 35 of 57 games while with the Tigers. He made 25 starts this season, when the Tigers finished 17-16.

Honor averaged 7.7 points this season, leading the team with 79 assists.

Honor played as a freshman at Fordham before transferring to Clemson, where he sat out his first season due to NCAA rules before playing the past two years.
