Brad Brownell and the Clemson men’s basketball team added a new addition Wednesday.
Former Air Force guard Jake Heidbreder announced on Twitter that he’s transferring to Clemson. The 6-foot-5, 180-pound Floyds Knob, Indiana, native averaged a team-high 15.1 points per game and shot 39.9% from the 3-point line this season.
His 75 3-pointers were the seventh-most in school history in a single season. He earned third-team All-Mountain West Conference honors.
Heidbreder played 32.4 minutes per game as a sophomore for the Falcons, who went 14-18 and finished 10th in the Mountain West in 2022-23. He also averaged 3.3 rebounds per game and hit 87% of his free throws.
As a freshman in 2021-22, Heidbreder made 49.8% of his shots from the field and averaged 10.1 points per game.
Heidbreder entered the NCAA transfer portal on March 21. Once a cadet enters their junior season, they are required to finish out their remaining years in school and then serving in the Air Force.
Heidbreder, who has two years of eligibility remaining, gives Clemson a scorer to help replace Hunter Tyson, who played five years for the Tigers and averaged 15.3 points per game this past season.
