Clemson sophomore Bernard Sullivan will transfer from the program and continue his education at another institution, the school announced in a release Monday.
“We appreciate Bernard’s contributions to the program,” Clemson coach Brad Brownell said in a statement. “We wish him nothing but the best in the future, and hope he finds a program that will better meet his needs.”
The 6-7, 215-pound Sullivan played 56 games in a Tigers uniform during his time at Clemson and averaged just over eight minutes per game. This season, his best game came Jan. 29 against Georgia Tech when he scored seven points on 3-of-5 shooting from the floor in nine minutes. He also had six points and grabbed three rebounds in a win over The Citadel on Jan. 1.
Coming out of high school from the Class of 2011, Sullivan was a Top 100 recruit. He chose Clemson over schools that include Marquette, Maryland, Purdue, South Carolina, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.

I’m on record saying that I would consider Marquette freshman Henry Ellenson if I had the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft, and while, at this point, I think that Brandon Ingram is probably going to end up going No. 2 — (Maybe No. 1???) — I still believe that Ellenson is going to be one of the best players from this draft class.
Well, just take a look at these highlights from the 26-point, 16-rebound performance he had in a win over Providence last night.
Then remember that Ellenson is 6-foot-11:
A solid poster dunk went down in the junior college ranks last night as Pensacola State sophomore Jamal Thomas finished a dunk through a block attempt against Northwest Florida State.
The 6-foot-3 Thomas used his power and momentum to go through the opposing shot blocker and the play made his head coach, Pete Pena, go nuts with an over-exaggerated fist pump. The video is short, but be sure to watch for Pena’s reaction near the logo at the top right of the screen.
