Las Vegas - Terrance Henry Spotlight

By this time in the summer, most high level recruits have gotten beyond the stage of their development where they have to prove themselves to college coaches. While Terrance Henry is one of those guys who has solidified his high major status, that hasn't stopped the slender 6-9 forward from Monroe (LA) Carroll from trying to prove his status as a player.

Playing with the New Orleans Jazz, the lefty was terrific in a 27 point win over the Los Angeles Rockfish. Despite his terrific performance, Henry wants to get more ouf of his Sin City experience.

“I guess that I played alright,” said Henry. “ I think I could do better but it’s just our first couple of games together and we’re still getting familiar with each other. Once that happens, I think we’ll all play better.”

A relatively skilled forward who is at his best spinning to the cup for dunks, shooting jump hooks and utilizing his quickness around the hoop, Henry can also step out to make the occasional 15 foot jumper. While he does need to add more strength, he’s also an excellent straight up shot blocker and has soft hands.

Rather than focus on specific schools who are recruiting him, Henry chose to speak in general terms when discussing his favorites and when he’ll narrow things down.

“I’m going to narrow it down after this tournament,” Henry told Phog.Net. “If I had to list a top six or seven at this time it would probably be Ole Miss, Arkansas, LSU, Baylor, Miami, USC and Kansas. I’d say they are all about even.”

After narrowing his list Henry is looking forward to setting up visits and making a decision. Although there’s been speculation that he could wait until the spring, Henry says he’ll likely sign during the fall and that he’s looking for most of things that any other highly regarded prospect would like to see out of a college program.

“Distance may be a factor, I’d like to stay close to home but I’ll go anywhere if it’s the right fit,” said Henry. “Probably most important is playing time and being able to come in and get the chance to be an impact freshman. The coaching staff is also important, I’ve got to be able to feel comfortable with them because if I’m not I won’t play well.”
