South Carolina losing sophomore forward to transfer

Sophomore forward Demetrius Henry is transferring out of South Carolina. The 6-foot-9 Henry started 19 of his 21 appearances for the Gamecocks last season but was suspended for the rest of the season in mid-February for conduct detrimental to the team.

Henry announced his transfer on Twitter:

A native of Miami, Henry averaged 19.5 minutes per game and shot 51 percent from the field during his sophomore season. Henry averaged 6 points, 3.6 rebounds and nearly a block a game for the Gamecocks, but after his suspension, it might be best for both parties to move on.

A former four-star prospect in the Class of 2013, Henry also took official visits to Clemson and Rutgers during the recruiting process before committing to South Carolina during the spring of his senior year.
