Corey Henderson Jr. didn’t find the right fit the first time around in the recruiting process, as the sophomore opted to leave Wichita State this spring after spending his freshman season there. Now at Blinn College for a season, the 6-foot-2 native of Dallas opted to commit to Tulsa on Saturday, a source confirmed with NBCSports.com. He’ll join the program for the 2016-17 season and have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

During his freshman season with the Shockers, Henderson averaged 6.8 minutes per game and scored 1.9 points per contest. He fell out of the rotation late in the season and Henderson didn’t play in the final two regular season games for Wichita State.

A noted shooter out of high school, Henderson struggled to find his shot last season, hitting 29 percent of his shots from the field and 31 percent of his 3-point attempts.
