BETHANY, Okla. (August 27, 2010) — It will be a welcome home of sorts for Oklahoma City native and Putnam City High product C.J. Henry after Southern Nazarene University announced that Henry will suit up for the Crimson Storm for 2010-11 season and will have three years of eligibility left.
Henry transfers from Kansas after playing in 13 games for the Jayhawks in the 2009-10 season while battling through injuries that also forced a redshirt season at Memphis. While Henry was an all-state and Super 5 selection for the Pirates, it was his game on the diamond that took Henry away from Oklahoma. Henry was the 17th pick overall in the 2005 MLB Amateur Draft took his game straight from high school to the professional ranks and made his debut with the Gulf Coast League Yankees. He left baseball after a stint with the Class-A Advanced Tampa Yankees in 2008.
Henry then walked on at Memphis and redshirted the 2008-09 season before transferring to Kansas. The 6-4 guard averaged 5.6 minutes and 3.1 points for the Jayhawks.
Henry joins two other NCAA Division I transfers in Horace McGloster and Milos Milosevic.
McGloster played two seasons at Houston, playing in 44 games across the 2007-08 and 08-09 seasons. McGoster ranked fourth on the team with seven blocks as a freshman for the Cougars. The Newark, N.J. native prepped at Malcom X Shabazz where he was a two-time Watchung Conference Player of the Year. He averaged 21 points, 17 rebounds and seven blocks a game as a senior. He led the Bulldogs to a state title as a junior and was a nominee for the 2006 McDonald’s All-American Team.
Milosevic makes his way to Bethany after playing one season at Valparaiso. He played in 17 games as a sophomore for the Crusaders, averaging 5.5 minutes a game and shot 47.1 percent from the field. Milosevic transferred to Valpo after playing the 2008-09 season for Yuba College (Calif.) where he averaged 9.5 points and seven boards as a freshman for the 49ers after suffering from a burst appendix in the first semester.
The Bar, Montenegro, native prepped at Oakmont (Calif.) High where he was an All-Sacramento second team choice, averaging 20 points and 12 boards as a senior.
"We are excited the addition of C.J., Horace, and Milos,” said SNU head coach Adam Bohac. “We look forward to each of them joining our group of returning players and making an immediate impact on our program."
