Henry Thinking Visits

The season is heading down the home stretch for Jarion Henry, and the 6-foot-8 combo forward is thinking of visits to Big East and Pac 10 schools.

One of the most talented unsigned players in the 2011 class is Jarion Henry. The forward from Dallas Kimball High School is in the middle of an excellent senior year, and has seen his stock go up on the recruiting trail. Now Henry is beginning to plan his visits.

All season long Kimball has been one of the best teams in the state of Texas, but according to Henry it is a recent loss that has them ready and focused for the state playoffs.

"It is going pretty good," said Henry. "I am just trying to stay humble and play hard. We lost the other night, and it showed us that we can be beaten if we don't play well. Now we know we can't take teams lightly."

At this point Henry claims that he hasn't measured up to his own high expectations for his play, but college coaches have come away impressed and Henry has picked up some high level interest during the year.

"I am hearing most from New Mexico, Georgetown, Marquette, Oregon, USC, and Miami," listed Henry.

While his number one focus right now is on winning a state title, Henry is beginning to think of the schools he will visit once the season is over.

"Most likely I will visit Georgetown, Oregon, and go out to USC again where I visited during my sophomore year," he explained.

When on those visits Henry knows what he will look for in a school, and it goes beyond just basketball.

"I am just looking for a place where I can come in and fit in on the floor, and at the same time a place that will make me a better person," said Henry.

Despite having some very good options already, Henry says that his list isn't final yet.

"I am sure there will be more schools getting involved once the season is over," Henry explained. "I am still open to that."

For now no timetable has been specifically set for a decision, but one should happen not too long after he makes some of his official visits.
