Clemson guard Chauncey Gibson has entered the transfer portal, On3 has confirmed.

Gibson, who is from Dallas, Texas, redshirted this past season. He did not appear in a game.

Gibson chose the Tigers over offers from SMU, Texas Tech and others out of Kimball High School.

He averaged 17.6 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists per game as a senior in high school in 2021-22.

Tigers coach Brad Brownell spoke highly of Gibson when he signed with Clemson last year.

“Chauncey gives us the element of a bigger guard who has a good feel for the game,” Brownell said at the time. “He shoots the ball well with deep range and we’re excited to add his all-around game to our backcourt.”

Gibson entered the transfer portal a day after the Tigers’ season came to an end as Clemson fell 68-64 to Morehead State in the NIT.

It was a disappointing ending to a very good season for Clemson. Brownell’s squad went 23-11 (14-6) but was left out of the NCAA Tournament, becoming the first ACC team since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985 to win 70 percent of its conference games and not make the NCAA Tournament.

The Tigers went 5-0 against bubble teams, beating NC State three times, Pitt and Penn State.

“We proved that we can beat several of the teams that got in. And we can beat them at home, we can beat them on the road, we can beat them in neutral. And we did that,” Brownell said. “Unfortunately, maybe the metrics are more important than common sense or just head to head watching games. So I feel bad about that.”

Clemson was hoping to make a run in the NIT. However, instead the Tigers had one of their worst shooting nights of the season.

Clemson shot 41 percent from the field and 21.4 percent from 3-point range while losing for only the second time this season at home.

Seniors Hunter Tyson and Brevin Galloway combined to shoot 2 of 17 from 3-point range.

“I thought we really felt the pressure. One of the few games this year, especially at home, where we really had a hard time making a shot and making some free throws,” Brownell said. “I thought our kids were ready to play. I thought we got off to a good start. Had a nice lead in the first half, played a bunch of guys. Then we got a little casual at the end of the first half and gave them some life.”
