Clemson took another hit to its backcourt Thursday.
Sophomore guard Scott Spencer, who played in 19 games this season, announced that he will transfer from the program.

Clemson coach Brad Brownell said during his season-ending press conference on March 29 that a transfer away from the program was possible.
“That could happen,” Brownell said. “We’re still working through that with guys on our team right now. College basketball is hard for players too sometimes. What we ask from these kids is a lot.
“Our guys get this week off, but next week we’ll be lifting and having skill workouts. Think about that versus when you actually get to play a game in November, and everything in between to get ready (for the season). Then sometimes you don’t get to play much. So there is a possibility that (a transfer) can happen.”
Spencer averaged 1.3 points while playing 7.7 minutes per game last season.
The Suffolk, Va. native could be the fourth guard to depart from the program this offseason. Gabe DeVoe graduated and redshirt juniors Marcquise Reed and Shelton Mitchell announced Monday that they will test the NBA draft waters without hiring an agent. Reed and Mitchell could still return to Clemson if they withdraw their names from the draft pool by June 11.
