Clemson's Tyler to transfer to UCF
Former Clemson forward A.J. Tyler, who is transferring from the Tigers and had mentioned USF as a possibility, told the Times' Joe Smith he'll play for Central Florida next season.
Tyler, a Palm Harbor graduate who played sparingly in his only season at Clemson, will be in better position for playing time with the Knights. USF has three scholarships available this spring for new coach Stan Heath and has a need for frontcourt depth, but Heath's preference is to find players who can help the Bulls this fall. If Kansas State center Jason Bennett opts to transfer, USF would be a possibility for the 7-foot-3 freshman from Jacksonville.
