After a career-year at Oral Roberts in his junior season, forward Javan White may have believed that he'd be an impact player for Clemson as a senior. Unfortunately, that simply wasn't the case, and now he's poised to take his final year of eligibility elsewhere.

Per TigerNet, Clemson basketball head coach Brad Brownell announced on Thursday that White has decided to transfer from the school. The move comes after a down year with the Tigers that saw his time on the court severely limited.

"I would like to thank Javan for all the hard work he has given our program this past season and wish him the best in the future," Brownell said.

As a senior, White appeared in 33 games, making two starts. He averaged two points and two rebounds per game with his best performance consistent of 10 points off the bench in a win over Pitt.

It was White's 2017-18 season that saw him shine with the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles. He averaged 27.5 minutes per game in 32 games played, contributing 10.2 points per game and a team-leading 9.0 rebounds per game.

Per 247Sports, White has entered the NCAA transfer portal, but does not yet have a destination.

White's departure leaves Clemson's scoring depth increasingly thin with so many other players set to leave at the end of the season.
