Former First Round Pick Henry Going to College

The Yankees 2005 first round pick CJ Henry has had an odd professional career. He was drafted out of high school as a shortstop, and was one of the four players sent to the Philadelphia in the Bobby Abreu trade. After last season, he asked the Phillies for his release, and many believed it was to go play college basketball. Instead, he signed with the Yankees, this time as a centerfielder. Now, one year later, Henry has announced that he is going to play basketball for Memphis. Henry will not be quitting baseball, and will return to the Yankees next season
