Jemere Hendrix Withdraws From Clemson

Clemson forward Jemere Hendrix has decided to withdraw from school and return home for family reasons. Clemson Head Coach Larry Shyatt made the announcement Monday.

Hendrix suffered a stress fracture of his right foot earlier in the season and had not played since Jan. 12. It was recently determined that he would miss the rest of the season due to the injury.

This past weekend he decided to withdraw from school and return home. He plans on attending a different school next year. "I have decided to leave Clemson for family reasons," said Hendrix. "I enjoyed my time at Clemson. I appreciate the opportunity Coach Shyatt gave me, but this decision is what is best for me and my family at this time."

"Jemere's injury caused some frustration the last few weeks," said Shyatt. "We will help him any way we can to have a successful future."

Hendrix played 43 minutes in eight games this season. He was 5-7 from the field and 9-14 from the foul line for 19 points in his limited action. He also pulled in 12 rebounds, including seven off the offensive boards. He had a season high nine points in 10 minutes of play against Coastal Carolina on Nov. 30. He scored five points and had three rebounds in four minutes of action at Wake Forest on Jan. 12 in his most recent action.
