Position: SG

Height: 6’6”

Weight: 225lbs


Accolades: McDonald’s All-American - high school (09), Second Team All-USA - USA Today - high school (09), Second Team Parade All-American - high school (08).


Scouting Report: A big, strong guard with a nice outside stroke.


Strengths: 6’10” wingspan. Left handed. Great size and strength for the shooting guard spot. Great three-point shooter. Big-time scorer. Good rebounder. Can post up smaller guards.


Weaknesses: Needs to improve his ball-handling. Needs to develop his mid-range game. Settles for the outside jumper too often. Good defender but must get better.

Consensus: Henry’s size and nice outside stroke will ensure he doesn’t have to spend too much time in college before earning NBA pay checks.
