TCU basketball landed its first transfer commitment on Sunday night.

Keonte Kennedy announced he’d committed to TCU, entering the transfer portal after spending just a few months at Xavier.

“I’m coming home!” Kennedy wrote on his Twitter page.

Kennedy, a 6-foot-5 guard from Austin, will have to sit out the 2019-20 season under NCAA transfer rules, and will be eligible for the 2020-21 season.

Kennedy played in 22 games for Xavier this season, averaging 2.0 points and 1.4 rebounds a game. He left the team on Feb. 20 to enter the transfer portal.

Kennedy was a three-star prospect coming out of Austin Westlake, according to 247 Sports.

TCU junior guard Desmond Bane is exploring his NBA options, but is more likely than not going to return for his senior season. Either way, Bane will not be eligible for TCU in the 2020-21 season, giving Kennedy a chance to earn significant playing time when he’s eligible.
