Jordan Heath, the older brother of Canisius signee Josiah Heath, is transfering to the school from NAIA Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester, according to a source.
Heath must sit out the 2011-12 season and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining. The 6-10, 225-pound Heath averaged a team-high 14.7 points and 7.2 rebounds for Roberts Wesleyan, who finished 21-14 last season and advanced to the semifinals of the NCCAA Tournament. They lost to eventual national champion Dallas Baptist in the semis. Heath was named to the all-tournament team and was also an honorable mention All-American.
Josiah Heath signed with the Golden Griffins last month as part of a seven-man recruiting class.
