Henry Hopes To Pick Up More Options

Jarion Henry is one of the few available talents in the class of 2011. He has a list of schools, but remains open.

Only six prospects in Scout.com's top 100 are still uncommitted, so the search is on for players that can play their way into a high major scholarship.

Jarion Henry, of Dallas (Tex.) Kimball, is an intriguing prospect that college coaches are evaluating during the high school season.

At this point the 6-foot-8, 205-pound wing prospect has received varying degrees of interest from Baylor, USC, Florida, Marquette, Arizona, Arizona State and Oregon.

"It's going pretty good," he said of his recruitment. I just haven't decided where I want to sign yet. I have some options."

He opted to sign late to prove to college coaches that he can play at the high major level.

"I just think I'll have more options after the season when the college coaches see how my game developed," Henry told Scout.com.

Henry put together a strong outing on Friday at the Thanksgiving Hoopfest. An active and live body, Henry wrecked havoc at the top of Kimball's press and he showed some impressive ball skills for a his guy his size.

"I'm a slasher and I'm a really good passer and I dribble well," Henry said when asked to describe his game. "Most likely in college I'll play the two or the three."

Henry is currently rated as a three-star prospect on Scout.com.
