The Nevada basketball team went 2-for-2 over the weekend.

The Wolf Pack had two official visitors to campus and both have committed to play for Nevada. One day after junior-college transfer Justin Johnson pledged to the Wolf Pack, prep big man DeAndre Henry joined him by announcing he would play for Nevada starting in 2020-21.

Henry is a 6-foot-8, 220-pound power forward who was a three-star football recruit as an offensive lineman who opted to make basketball his future. He is unrated as a prospect in basketball.

Playing for Mountain Pointe High in Phoenix, Henry averaged 12.2 points, 10.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game as a junior last season while shooting 62 percent from the field and 72 percent from the free throw line. He also had offers or interest from Grand Canyon, Portland State, South Dakota, Northern Arizona, North Carolina A&T, Air Force, Northern Colorado, Montana State, Loyola Marymount, Loyola-Chicago and Cornell.

Henry is the third commitment in Nevada's 2020 class, joining Johnson and Arizona prep combo guard Alem Huseinovic. The Wolf Pack has two scholarships remaining in its 2020 class.
