Last year, at the conclusion of his freshman season at BYU, Demarcus Harrison announced that he would be going on his mission, which is a common enough thing for students at BYU. Dave Rose and the rest of the BYU staff planned accordingly, and made sure that there would be 13 scholarship players for the 2012-13 season. Again - completely normal and expected. But then Harrison informed the staff that he would not, in fact, be going on his mission. And this created an odd situation.
The staff had to inform him that they couldn't find a scholarship for him. Suddenly without the financial backing to play basketball, Harrison has now decided to transfer to Clemson, which is close to his hometown of Greenwood, South Carolina. Coming out of high school he was rated a 3* or 4*, depending on the service.
He will apply for a waiver to play this season, and has rescheduled (for now) his mission to begin after this year.
