Henley Changes High Schools, Picks Up Offer

Class of 2011 wing Dre Henley recently decided to leave DeLaSalle Insitute in Chicago to attend Brehm Prep in Southern Illinois for his junior year. The 6-6, 220 lb. star also has picked up a scholarship offer during the July evaluation period. Learn more about Henley in this report.

Andre Henley decided the best thing for his future in both the classroom and on the basketball court will be for him to get the strong structure provided at Brehm Prep in Carbondale, Illinois. While leaving the Chicago area may not be easy for him, he has seen many of his future teammates out on the AAU circuit this summer. Other Brehm players such as Bruce Barron, Emmanuel Ochenje, and James Siakim play on the AAU circuit with the Illinois Titans.

Henley, who is letting his father James handle much of the attention from college recruiters, recently picked up a scholarship offer from DePaul University to go along with offers from Illinois, Iowa State, and Southern Illinois. Dre is also receiving interest from Arkansas and Marquette.

"I'm wide open right now," Henley said at the End of Summer tournament in Merrillville, Indiana.

In June, Henley attended Iowa State's elite camp. He followed that up with being selected to the Reebok All-American Camp in early July. Since then, Dre has been grabbing the attention of college coaches during the July "live" evaluation period with the 16-Under Mac Irvin Fire team.

Henley and the Fire played in the prestigious Nike Peach Jam tournament and then headed out to Las Vegas, before closing out the month at the Desert Duel in Phoenix and here in Merrillville.

Dre saved his best performance for last. Yesterday at the End of Summer tournament, Henley dropped seven 3-pointers in a single game for the Fire. He continues to show the ability to score both outside and inside with his dribble penetration.
