Henry On Verge of Decision

Xavier Henry's recruiting saga appears to be on the verge of ending. Things were put into motion late Tuesday night that spelled victory for one program.

Through a compilation of sources, here's what our best – in the moment – prognostication is with Xavier Henry.

At some point in the very near future, according to a source, Xavier and C.J. Henry, are likely to publicly announce for Kansas. Word late Tuesday night indicated that Kentucky was informed of the decision and that Kansas was going to score the wings.

There's a bit of uncertainly leaving a minimum amount of wiggle room for the Henry's to change their minds but as of early Wednesday morning, signs are pointing to Kansas as the destination for the boys.

This would also take Lance Stephenson out of the mix to end up in Lawrence. It would simultaneously make John Wall the only significant target on Kentucky's radar screen in the Class of 2009. Head coach John Calipari is in Raleigh Wednesday for another chance at face time with Wall.

Wall is visiting Miami this weekend.
