Henry to UK picking up steam
Posted by ibleedblue040 on June 30, 2009
On a Kansas City radio station today Carl Henry, the father of Xavier and CJ, stated he and his family felt betrayed by a newspaper article that made the Henry’s look like “prima donna’s” and that they were questioning their commitment to Kansas even further.
Carl stated that Daniel Orton and John Wall, two players who chose Kentucky over Kansas among others, have been talking to Xavier about how great it is in Lexington and how they want him to join them in the pursuit of an NCAA Championship.
Many Kansas message boards have been calling the Henry family “slime” amongst other things for the way they have handled their displeasure with the Kansas program.
So what will the UK program look like if Henry joins as the fifth five-star player this season?
PG: John Wall – Top five player in the nation right off the bat
SG: Xavier Henry – Deadly shooter who has a complete offensive game
SF: Darius Miller – Will be one of the most improved players in the SEC and fits DDM offense perfectly
PF: Patrick Patterson – Decision to come back was the right one. May be the top big man in the country
C: DeMarcus Cousins – Rated as the #2 high school player in the nation behind Wall and is a bigger, more talented Patrick Patterson at the same stage
Potential Key Bench Players
Eric Bledsoe – Would be starting for most teams in the nation. A really strong and powerful guard.
Jon Hood – Very athletic wing with an old school game. Will not cry about getting limited minutes and should pick up the offense quickly.
Daniel Orton – Coming off an injury he should be ready to prove himself. Great body who should play very aggressively.
Darnell Dodson – Another deadly shooter who can get into the lane. Will cause teams not to double the great post players.
