Andy Kennedy's Ole Miss Rebels received significant news on the recruiting front Monday evening. Terrance Henry, a 6-foot-9 power forward, wants to be a Rebel. The Monroe (La.) Carroll product selected Kennedy's crew after considering programs such as LSU, Kansas and a host of others.
"I've been spending a lot of time with their entire staff since last spring so there was that comfort level with them," Henry told Ole Miss Spirit. "Plus, my coach played at Ole Miss so he gave me the inside view of what they are really about. But Coach K was a big part of my decision and I can't say enough about (assistant) Coach White."
Henry, rated No. 60 by Scout.com in the senior class, has a lot of attributes working in his favor. He's athletic, has a long body and more importantly plenty of room to improve. As a junior, he pumped in 26 points and a dozen rebounds a night.
Brandon Wilson and Terrico White, a pair of guards, join Henry in the Rebels' recruiting class. Henry's pledge can go a long way toward the building of the program. A bonafide Top 100 talent (like Malcolm White was) is a chip in the game. Kennedy's had them before at previous stints and now he's got a pair of them at Mississippi.
