Henry's Visit

The Razorback basketball program is hosting former West Memphis and current Cincinnati prep standout Jason Henry this weekend

The University of Arkansas basketball program is hosting a prime prospect this weekend as it prepares for the April 16-May 21 spring signing period.

Former West Memphis star and current Cincinnati Harmony Christian small forward Jason Henry (6-7, 190) is here, but junior college guard Devon Dumes (6-2, 185) of Vincennes University was unable to make it due to a flight cancellation.

Henry, who was due in late Thursday night, averaged 27 points this season for a 29-1 squad whose only loss was in the opening round of the National Prep Elite Eight Tournament.

"'He's only a shoe affiliation away from being top five in the country,' noted Harmony coach Rodney Crawford earlier this year. "...Henry has the handle of a point guard, a natural ability to get buckets and overall (Tracy) McGrady-esque qualities..."

Originally a Cincinnati signee and a consensus top 100 player in 2007, Henry has also been considering Nebraska and Providence.

Dumes, a former Indianapolis prep standout, began his college career at Eastern Michigan and averaged 8 points his freshman season before a coaching change.

He transferred to Vincennes where he averaged 16.9 points, 4.0 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game this season for a 28-6 team that made it to the National Junior College Tournament in Hutchinson, Kansas.

Dumes, who hit 41 percent of his 3-pointers and 84 percent of his free throws, has already visited UTEP back in the fall and Colorado last week.

After his visit to Arkansas this weekend, he may also visit Ohio State and Alabama.

The Razorbacks are also known to be interested in JeJuan Brown (6-7, 232), who was originally scheduled to visit Arkansas this weekend, but will now visit at a later date.
