Clemson basketball Head Coach Brad Brownell will have one more scholarship at his disposal for 2018, as junior forward David Skara announced his plans to graduate and turn professional on Wednesday.
Skara came to the Tigers as a transfer from Valparaiso, playing one season with Clemson after sitting out the NCAA-mandated one season because of his change of schools. He made 26 appearances this season, making seven starts and averaged 3.3 points and 2.8 rebounds per game.
The native of Croatia proved valuable on the defensive end, and especially so after the injury to departing senior Donte Grantham during ACC play.
Clemson now has three openings on their roster for potential scholarship additions following Skara’s departure.
Those three spots do not include Shelton Mitchell and Marcquise Reed, who submitted their names for consideration for the NBA Draft. Neither has hired an agent and would be free to return to the Tigers if they pull their names from consideration by May 30th.
