Clemson basketball has landed a commitment from UNC Asheville forward Jonathan Baehre, a source confirmed to The State on Thursday.
Baehre averaged 7.4 points and 4.6 rebounds per game this past season. The Germany native will have to sit out the 2018-19 season and will have two years of eligibility remaining.
Baehre started 21 of 34 games this past year, helping the Bulldogs reach the NIT. He scored 28 points and had 14 rebounds in a loss to Southern Cal in the NIT.
The 6-foot-9 forward grew up in Germany before playing his senior season of high school basketball in Georgia.
Tigers coach Brad Brownell said Tuesday in Columbia that the Tigers were looking to add a player with length to this recruiting class.
"I think we need another player of some size and maybe another perimeter player," Brownell said. "We lose some good players, Gabe DeVoe, David Skara is kind of a versatile guy that left and was graduating. He was kind of a three-four. Obviousl,y Donte Grantham was a tremendous player at a forward spot for us. Mark Donnal was a great backup five-man that really gave us good minutes. Ideally we’d like to at least get one more big guy. And then at least one more perimeter player."
