Clemson has signed Illinois State forward Myles Foster to its men’s basketball roster for the upcoming season.

Coach Brad Brownell announced the addition on Tuesday. The 6-foot-7 Foster was the Redbirds’ second-leading scorer last season, averaging 12.4 points per game, and led the team in rebounds with eight per game.

Foster, originally from Brooklyn, N.Y., played his first three seasons at Monmouth before transferring to Illinois State last season. He has one year of eligibility remaining.

“Myles is coming off a really good year at Illinois State and provides frontcourt depth to our team,” Brownell said. “He is a crafty, low-post scorer who is physical, rebounds well, and fits our offensive system perfectly.”

The Tigers will need depth up front, having lost 6-11 starter PJ Hall and reserves 6-10 Jack Clark and 6-8 RJ Godfrey from a team that advanced to the NCAA’s Elite Eight.

West Virginia has added 6-foot guard Joseph Yesufu, who played in six games last season at Washington State before a season-ending hip injury. Yesufu previously played two seasons each at Kansas and Drake under Darian DeVries, who is now at West Virginia. Yesufu has played in 119 career games.

West Virginia lost a school-record 23 games this past season under interim coach Josh Eilert and is undergoing a roster overhaul under DeVries.
