Rivals.com was impressed with its first viewing of Terrance Henry at the Real Deal on the Hill, and so were a number of coaches. The 6-foot-9, 190-pound combo forward from Monroe (La.) Carroll High School is gathering offers from all over the country.
Alabama, Tennessee, USC, Kansas, Missouri, LSU, Ole Miss and Baylor were all mentioned by Carroll head coach Chris Oney as having offered Henry. The new staff at Kentucky hasn't officially offered Henry yet, but they were vigorously pursuing him while at Texas A&M.
"Baylor, LSU and New Orleans have been into see him already," said Coach Oney. "Kansas is coming in after the Kingwood Classic as is about everyone else. I got a lot of phone calls after he played in Arkansas. I was a little surprised when Kansas called and offered, but I'm just glad people are noticing what I've already noticed about him."

Henry's most telling moment at the Real Deal on the Hill was when he matched up with Renardo Sidney. Henry scored in the post as well as off the dribble against the elite 2009 prospect.
Coach Oney has also seen Henry put up great numbers against ranked opponents.
"Against the state champions Peabody High School, Terrance put up 27 points, 13 rebounds and seven blocks," said Coach Oney. "I've seen him outplay a bunch of ranked players. The problem is that he was just a little shy, I guess, and didn't play on the circuit last year. So people are just starting to recognize him on a national level."
This weekend Henry will play with MBA Hoops at the Kingwood Classic.
Terrance Henry scouting report:
A long and athletic lefty, Henry has a dangerously versatile game. He can score in the post, runs the floor and is an active rebounder and shot blocker. He can also knock down the 15-footer and is good with the ball facing the basket. Working to extend his range to the arc, Henry is also working to build up his body.
