Clemson Forward Noel Johnson Will Transfer

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell
Noel Johnson came to Clemson to fill their void on the wing, or hopefully help it.

He didn't play a lot last year, and only logged 14.8 minutes per game, but many expected him to improve during his sophomore year at Clemson with Trevor Booker out of the way.

However, his minutes have reduced (13.1 mpg), mostly due to his lack of contribution.

He currently shoots 27 percent from the field, a 62 percent free-throw shooter, and nails 21 percent of his three-point attempts.

Johnson has the ability to ignite a team on the wing, and is very disappointed at his play through seven games. His answer to the problem is transferring schools.

According to reports, the Clemson Tigers 6-foot-6 small forward has decided he would transfer schools with no hard feelings.

Johnson initially wanted to attend the University of Southern California but changed his mind and gave the Tigers the nod. However, that hasn't worked in his favor, which could be a positive for the USC Trojans.

Johnson could be a key asset for a Trojans team that need a dynamic wing threat.
