Boston College men's basketball landed another transfer on Friday, adding Drexel forward T.J. Bickerstaff.

Bickerstaff, a sophomore 6-foot-9 power forward averaged 10.2 points and 5.2 boards per game for Drexel this past season and appeared in the NCAA Tournament. He had a season high 19 points in the season opener against Pitt. Given the NCAA transfer rules, and extra year of eligibility he should have three years to compete at Boston College. 

His uncle J.B. Bickerstaff is the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers. 

This addition gives Boston College some much needed length at the forward position. After losing both CJ Felder and Steffon Mitchell, and with James Karnik, Fred Scott and Andre Adams status unknown Boston College needed another big forward to pair with DeMarr Langford. 

This is the second transfer for Boston College this off-season, joining Brevin Galloway, a guard from College of Charleston. The Eagles still have multiple spots to fill on the roster, so expect them to continue to be active in the transfer portal.
