A year ago, Louisiana native Terrance Henry was purely a prospect. Now, the 6-foot-8 Monroe (La.) Carroll High School is more than that. He's a must get guy in the class of 2008.
Prior to the spring, Henry said he was holding offers from Ole Miss, Baylor, Kansas and LSU. Since the April evaluation period ended, he picked up free rides from Arkansas, Alabama, Memphis, Miami, Tennessee and Missouri. Henry said he's felt the interest increase from a host of programs.
"If I had to say I had a top five, I'd say Ole Miss, LSU, Baylor, Kansas and Miami stand out the most," Henry said. "But a lot could change. I don't want to sign until the spring."
Don't be surprised to see Henry's name mentioned by more programs late in the game. Guys like him aren't usually waiting around after November.
The four-star prospect took to the court with the M33M Ballers at the Tournament of Champions and quietly did his job with the loaded roster. Skilled away from the basket, Henry can shoot from the wing but he's a long player around the basket and controlled the glass.
"I think I'm a mismatch problem for people," Henry said. "I want to work hard at both positions so I can be a better player."
Henry said he will attend the NBA Players Association camp this June.
