Clutch Gaming has reportedly finalized its roster for the upcoming NA LCS season. Former Echo Fox mid laner Tanner Damonte is set to join Clutch Gaming, according to an ESPN report.

This news follows an earlier ESPN report that says former Clutch Gaming top laner Colin “Solo” Earnest, ADC Apollo Price, and support Nickolas “Hakuho” Surgent have been transferred to Echo Fox.

Damonte would be reunited with former Echo Fox top laner Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon, who also plans to join Clutch Gaming for 2019, according to ESPN. The 20-year-old mid laner would replace Fabian “Febiven” Diepstraten on Clutch Gaming after he joined Misfits earlier this week.

With the addition of Damonte, Clutch’s 2019 roster will reportedly feature Huni, jungler Nam “LirA” Tae-yoo, Damonte, ADC Chae “Piglet” Gwang-jin, and support Philippe “Vulcan” Laflamme.

ESPN reported earlier today that Echo Fox was “evaluating potential trade options” for Damonte and jungler Joshua “Dardoch” Hartnett. With Damonte now set to join Clutch Gaming and support Andy “Smoothie” Ta officially on TSM, Dardoch could be the next former Echo Fox player on the move.
