Gamecocks win recuiting battle for Florida big man

The SportsXchange

Frank Martin and South Carolina won a recruiting battle on Thursday with Miami (Fla.) for the services of Demetrius Henry.

Martin, who guided the Gamecocks to a 4-14 record in SEC play in his first year already had recruited a solid class, including top-50 guard Sindarius Thornwell. Another player who should contribute immediately is Villanova transfer Ty Johnson.

Henry, a 6-foot-8 power forward from Faith Baptist (Fla.), is a high-energy player who can rebound and possesses a solid offensive game. With the Gamecocks lacking experience on the interior, Henry could see plenty of action as a freshman.
