Avry Holmes is transferring to Clemson after playing the past two seasons at San Francisco. The 6-2 point guard arrived at Clemson on Saturday night for an official visit and was expected to sign his financial aid agreement Monday before flying back to the west coast.
Holmes said Clemson coach Brad Brownell moved in on him quickly once the word of his transfer plans got out.
"When I signed my release, they were obviously one of the schools that contacted me. They wanted me to get on campus fast. They were the only ones moving fast."
Last season, Holmes helped lead the Dons to the NIT, starting 33 games and averaging 12.5 points per game.
Holmes will sit out this season, something he said he will benefit from, and he'll have two years to play with the Tigers.
Charleston Southern's Alex Tomasovich was named the Big South player of the week, while brother and teammate Andrew Tomasovich was tabbed pitcher of the week.
Alex Tomasovich, a senior, batted .375 with six hits and three RBIs to lead the Buccaneers to a 3-1 record last week.
Andrew Tomasovich, a sophomore, needed only 100 pitches to complete a 1-0 shutout of Presbyterian on May 3. It was his first career complete game.
As part of the Big South's 30th anniversary celebration, the conference announced its first-ever All-Decade teams to recognize the student-athletes and coaches who excelled in their respective sports since the conference's founding in 1983.
Charleston Southern tennis players honored were Julie Harnois (1990-99, 2-time all-conference), Thomas Miho (2000-09, 4-time all-conference) and Rohan Wadehra (2000-09, 3-time all-conference).
Former CSU men's coach Hans Olsen, (1990-99, 2 championships, one NCAA tournament, 2-time coach of the year, Big South Hall of Fame member) was also among those named to a team.
