Former Michigan center Mark Donnal will transfer to Clemson, according to Jordan Strack of WTOL-11.

As a graduate transfer, Donnal will be eligible to play immediately for the Tigers.

The power forward from Whitehouse (OH) Anthony Wayne High School played in 101 total games for the Wolverines, averaging 5.1 points and 2.6 rebounds per game. For Michigan in 2016-17, Donnal averaged 3.9 points and 2.0 rebounds in 12.2 minutes per game.

Coming out of high school in 2013, Donnal was ranked as the No. 86 player in his class, according to the 247Sports Composite. He was the 18th-best at his position and the No. 3 ranked player from the state of Ohio.

The 6-foot-9, 240-pound athlete also considered playing for Creighton and Vanderbilt.

Clemson is coached by Brad Brownwell, who current Michigan assistant Billy Donlon worked for from 2001-2010 at UNC Wilmington and Wright State as an assistant. The Tigers finished the 2016-17 season with a 17-16 record. Clemson went 6-12 in the ACC and lost in the first round of the NIT Tournament.
