Bellarmine University men's head basketball coach Scott Davenport announced today the addition of one more NCAA Division I transfer to the Knights program.

Ethan Claycomb, a 6-7 forward from Indiana State will transfer into the Bellarmine program for the 2018-19 season and will have three years of eligibility.

"Ethan is a very versatile basketball player," Davenport said. "He has great vision and the special ability to affect the game in many ways at both ends of the floor."

Claycomb is a native of Vincennes, Indiana, playing his high school basketball for Lincoln High School, where he averaged 18.9 points and 7.1 rebounds as a senior to earn All-Big Eight Conference honors while leading the Alices to a 17-7 record.

After redshirting his first year, Claycomb played sparingly for the Sycamores in 2017-18, making just seven appearances for a total of 20 minutes of court time.

Claycomb said he is looking forward to helping Bellarmine continue its recent success. "(Bellarmine) has been very successful, and I am anxious to contribute," he said. "In addition, Bellarmine is a great school. I was impressed with the campus and look forward to becoming a Bellarmine Knight."

Claycomb is the second DI transfer to commit to Bellarmine this spring with Chris Palombizio of Oakland University making the announcement last week.

"Chris and Ethan add versatility to our roster," Davenport said. "We love the way they embrace the way we teach and compete as a team. Their desire to win in the classroom and on the court is a perfect fit for our program."
