C.J. Henry: Two-Sport Star

It's not clear how high C.J. Henry will be taken in next year's Major League Baseball Draft, but wherever he goes the Putnam City (Okla.) High guard still wants to play college basketball.

C.J. Henry has a decision to make – or does he?

``I want to play both sports," said the baseball/basketball star from Putnam City High (Okla.). "Whether it be playing college or minor league baseball. I definitely want to do both."

Henry, a 6-3, 195-pound senior guard who brings a quality outside shot and solid leadership skills to the table, will do a little bit of both in July – but his primary interest for the month will be on the hardwood.

Henry will attend the adidas Superstar Camp in Georgia and then will remain in the state for the East Cobb Wooden Bat Tournament. He'll also head to Las Vegas and Los Angeles in late July with Team Oklahoma – a new adidas team.

Both of Henry's parents played basketball at Kansas, so it's only natural that the Jayhawks are on his list. Henry also mentions Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kentucky, Texas, UConn and Louisville – although, according to sources, the Sooners have the lead at this time.

On the baseball side, Miami, Stanford, Texas and LSU are showing the most interest.
