Towards the end of the 2016-17 season there were rumblings that one of Rick Pitino’s walk-on’s may be leaving the program. That has now been confirmed as we’ve learned that Jay Henderson will transfer from UofL.
Henderson sent out this Tweet over the weekend and later confirmed with the Courier-Journal that he’ll be leaving the Louisville program.
Days in the ville coming to a end🤐

In two seasons at UofL Henderson played in 27 games and scored a total of 18 points. He’ll have two seasons of eligibility left wherever he ends up transferring to.
The 6-foot-5 Orlando native wasn’t your average walk-on. Henderson joined the St. John’s program in his first year out of high school, but had multiple notable offers. He was expected to be on scholarship in his second season in New York, but chose to move on when head coach Steve Lavin was let go.
According to 247 Sports, Henderson had scholarship offers from Dayton, George Mason, Memphis, Mississippi State and Murray State when he decided to walk-on at St. John’s.<
