Yet again Illini nation must say “hey, thanks for coming!” to a college basketball player. Myke Henry is the fourth Illini baller to leave the Big Ten program this offseason. No biggee, the Illini have a tremendous recruiting class coming in, and a couple transfers. Illinois basketball is seeing a lot of influx of players; just as they’re seeing an exodus too.
Henry attended Chicago’s Orr High, and he did contribute some quality minutes this past season under first year coach John Groce.
