Messersmith is a 6-foot-7 shot-blocking specialist from tiny Benedictine College in Atchison, Kan. He also is believed to be the first openly gay active player in U.S. men's college basketball.

A month ago, Jason Collins came out, becoming the first out gay active male pro athlete in the history of America's major leagues.
