Clemson transfer Adonis Filer headed to FAU

The first point guard to sign under new FAU basketball head coach Michael Curry is no high school product — he’s a college junior coming from a school 12 hours away from Boca Raton.

Adonis Filer attended Clemson University for two years, playing only sparingly. He averaged 3.9 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game this past year. He announced his transfer via tweet earlier today.

Filer played on a Notre Dame Prep team that included Sam Cassell Jr., the son of NBA player Sam Cassell, and Steven Adams, center for the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Per NCAA rules, Filer’s transfer status means he must sit out the 2014-2015 season. After doing so, he will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

The Owls already have two point guards on their current roster: Marquan Botley, who made the All Conference-USA freshman team, and D’Andre Johnson, who was a finalist for Conference USA Freshman of the Year.
