Former Clemson Tigers men’s basketball Adonis Filer has announced where he’ll play next. Filer has made the decision to play at Florida Atlantic.

He will now have to sit out next season and will have two years left. He goes from playing in the Atlantic Coast Conference, the best basketball conference in the country, to a way smaller school.

Filer was the eighth-best scorer on the team. K.J. McDaniels led the Tigers with 17.1 points per game.

Filer had seven points in a win over the Belmont Bruins on March 25th.

He had 136 points on the season. Only twice, he scored in double figures. He had a season-high 12 points twice.

He first scored 12 points in a win over the VMI Keydets on December 30th. Then, nearly a month later, he also had 12 points in a loss to the North Carolina Tar Heels on January 26th.

Due to the NCAA transfer rules, Filer will have to sit out one season. He will then be eligible to play for the 2015-16 season.
