Clemson men’s basketball head coach Brad Brownell is no stranger to dipping his toes into the transfer portal and it appears the Tigers could be adding a few players in the coming weeks.  

After losing multiple starters from last season’s team and the decommitment of Princeton transfer Jaelin Llewellyn, Brownell and the Tigers may have unfinished business in the transfer department. 

“We’re probably going to look at a wing-type player.” Brownell said of a adding a potential player through the portal. “But, we have some versatility in our lineup, so we could do some different things if something caught our eye.”  

Almost immediately following the loss of Llewellyn, Clemson landed the program’s fourth 2022 recruit in Dillon Hunter, a three-star 6-foot-3 guard. With the addition of Hunter, the Tigers only have two open scholarships left for the 2022 season.  

Clemson is currently targeting Wofford transfer Max Klesmit, a former All-SoCon guard who averaged 14.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game this past season.  

The 6-foot-3 guard narrowed his list of potential destinations to four on April 12, naming Clemson as a potential landing spot alongside South Carolina, Colorado State and Vanderbilt. However, a source within Wofford’s program has said that Wisconsin may emerge as a dark-horse option for Klesmit.  

Clemson is also targeting Wichita State transfer Dexter Dennis, a 6-foot-5 wing who was recently named the AAC Defensive Player of the Year. According to On3, Dennis visited Clemson on Wednesday.  

Although Llewellyn withdrew his commitment to Clemson, he did not rule out a return to Tigertown, keeping his name on the list of potential transfers Clemson could add to its program.
