Clemson signs another transfer, ex-Valparaiso F David Skara

Tigers coach Brad Brownell announced the signing on Thursday. Skara, a 6-foot-8 sophomore, played the past two seasons at Valparaiso. He will have two years of eligibility at Clemson after sitting out next season due to NCAA transfer rules.

Skara played in 63 games for the Crusaders over the past two seasons, averaging 6.5 points last season.
