Rams introduce Henry as first recruit

By Andrea Elliott

TORONTO - The Ryerson Rams men's basketball team is excited to announce the commitment of Canadian Junior National Team veteran Jordan Henry as the team's first recruit in the 2017-18 class.

Henry, a point guard for the Canadian junior squad, is considered one of the best in his age group in the country and will fill the void left by the graduation of All-Canadian guard Adika Peter-McNeilly.

A native of Pickering, Ont., Henry has led his Pine Ridge S.S. Pumas to four LOSSA championships and set the school's single-game record with 55 points in a game.

In addition to those two accolades, Henry includes winning medals while representing his country on the junior national team as the highlights of his athletic career.

Rams coach Roy Rana is all too familiar with Henry as Rana coached him on the junior national team and their previous relationship helped bring Henry to Ryerson.

"Jordan is one of the best point guards in his class in the country. He's played on the biggest stage in a world championship and he will be a foundation piece for our program over the next five years," said Rana.

"I chose Ryerson because I feel like it will help me develop my skills in order to play at the next level, while still obtaining a top level education," added Henry.

The newest Ram will be enrolled in the Arts & Contemporary Studies program this fall.

Stay tuned for more recruit releases as they become available.
