Rising junior center Landry Nnoko, who Brad Brownell is counting on to make a major step forward offensively next season in the absence of K.J. McDaniels, recently underwent surgery to repair a meniscus tear in a knee, Brownell told a gathering of Clemson boosters in Greenville on Wednesday.

"Everything seems fine," Brownell said. "It was a little bit bigger tear than maybe they originally thought, but the doctors did a great job, and it's just going to take some time for him to heal."

Brownell also commented on the latest addition to the Clemson program, Avry Holmes of Salem, Oregon, a transfer from San Francisco who'll have two seasons of eligibility with the Tigers.

"A lot of people are really excited about him," Brownell said. "His athleticism is off the charts, and I think people are excited by his development and how much he improved over the last two years and what he can be."
