BYU announced that sophomore forward/guard Damarcus Harrison will transfer to Clemson and is seeking a waiver to play immediately.
Harrison didn't see many minutes during the season, but made his biggest contribution when it counts -- on the stage of March Madness. He scored 12 points in 21 minutes and helped BYU's zone overcome Iona in one of the most historic comebacks in NCAA history.
Harrison was originally going to serve his LDS mission and return to play basketball in 2014-2015, but those plans were delayed. He wanted to enroll and play this year, but because the coaches anticipated Harrison being on his mission, his scholarship slot was awarded to freshman Cory Calvert.
Harrison averaged 3.2 points, 1.0 rebounds and 0.5 assists on just 8.8 minutes a game. He appeared in all but five games last season.
