CLEMSON, S.C. –– Redshirt-sophomore guard Anthony Oliver II will transfer from Clemson University, head coach Brad Brownell announced on Friday.

“I’d like to thank AJ for his commitment and dedication to our program over the last couple seasons and his contributions to a great season that ended with a Sweet 16 appearance last year,” said Brownell. “We wish him the best of luck in the future.”

Oliver II, a Birmingham, Ala. native, appeared in 19 games last season for the Tigers, averaging 7.2 minutes per contest. Oliver scored a career-best nine points against Boston College in the ACC Tournament, hitting three 3-pointers in a 90-82 win.
