Clemson basketball confirmed Tuesday night that big man Jonathan Baehre suffered a torn ACL, an injury that will typically keep an athlete sidelined for several months. The program says there is no timetable for Baehre’s return.
“This is an unfortunate injury for our team. I hate it for Jonathan for how hard he’s worked this past year. I know he’ll attack his rehab the right way and come back when he’s ready and have a very productive career at Clemson,” said head coach Brad Brownell.
Baehre sat-out the past season after transfering from UNC-Asheville and is expected to make a significant contribution to the team in the coming.
The Tigers also confirmed the addition of Texas Tech transfer wing Khavon Moore, a native of Macon, GA who sat-out most of this past season for NCAA runner-up Texas Tech.
“We’re excited that Khavon is joining our basketball family,” said Brownell in a Clemson release. “Khavon is a multi-dimensional wing player that can play three positions and will contribute on a high level in a multitude of ways. He’s also a terrific open court player who excels at making plays, both for himself and for others.”
The 6-8 Moore played two minutes for Tech this past season.
His prevoius experience includes playing on the AAU circuit for Atlanta Xpress.
He was considered a four-star recruit out of Macon’s Westside High School and was rated No. 44 in the nation by Rivals.com in the Class of 2018. ESPN.com graded Moore as a four-star prospect (No. 43 nationally in ESPN’s Top 100).
During his prep career, Moore amassed 2,000 points and averaged 22.5 points, 9.0 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 2.2 steals and 1.8 blocks per game as a senior.
A process exists that could allow for Moore to have immediate eligibility instead of sitting out a season.
