BYU has announced that former four-star recruit Damarcus Harrison is transferring to Clemson.

BYU sophomore guard Damarcus Harrison will transfer to Clemson, Cougars head coach Dave Rose announced Monday.

"We appreciate the hard work and dedication Damarcus gave to our program this past season," Rose said in a statement. "Damarcus is a great young man from a wonderful family. We wish them the very best with this new opportunity."

Harrison, a four-star recruit coming out of high school, averaged just 3.2 points and 1.0 rebounds while playing less than nine minutes per game as a freshman at BYU in 2011-12.

When announcing his intention to transfer, Harrison explained that he had planned to leave on a two-year church mission this summer, but that the mission was delayed. When he attempted to return to BYU, he was informed that his scholarshio had been given away.

A native of North Carolina, Harrison has announced that he will be seeking a waiver from the NCAA to allow him to play immediately. The immediate addition of Harrison would help Clemson cushion the loss of sophomore Devin Coleman, who is out 6-8 months after tearing his ACL in July.
