Newton advanced to the state AAAAA semifinals where they lost to powerhouse Milton High School, and a big reason for Newton's success was Henry. The combo guard averaged 24 points, six rebounds, and five assists, and he was named All-State and Region 2-AAAAA Player of the Year.
"We had a good year," said Henry. "I feel like I did well, won a lot of awards, and our team made it far in states. We lost to Milton, but they are real good. They won the whole thing."
Now the 6-foot-3, 190-pounder is suiting up on the AAU circuit for the Worldwide Renegades and was in the triangle over the weekend competing in the 2010 Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions.
Henry knows that his play in events like the Tournament of Champions will impact his future.
"These tournaments are huge," he said. "Colleges are looking to see how you do against all the other good players. I know I need to play my game and do well.
"I see myself as more of a combo guard. I'm more of a scorer, but playing point guard is no problem for me. I can bring the ball up and get us into our offensive sets if I need to."
Henry's already hearing from several programs.
"Yes sir, I've been getting a lot of interest," he stated. "I'm hearing from Richmond, NC State, Harvard, Georgia, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, and Miami.
"I know Richmond has offered me a scholarship, and I'm pretty sure that NC State has. I think they told coach Peaches and coach Ryan that they have offered me."
NC State has had a lot of success recruiting players out of the Worldwide Renegades program. J.J. Hickson and Richard Howell played their entire AAU careers with the Renegades, and Lorenzo Brown and C.J. Leslie spent time with the team as well. Assistant coach Larry Harris is recruiting Henry and teammate Charles Mitchell for the Wolfpack.
"I've talked to coach Harris before and I know they are always talking to my coaches," said Henry. "They are recruiting me and Chuck... I'm pretty sure they've already offered him too. He's interested in going there as well.
"They have film from my games, and I think they are recruiting me even more now... they also know I had a big season."
NC State is one of the programs that Henry is attracted to.
"I'm definitely interested in going to NC State," he stated. "I know a lot of players that are there now. I've played against them and wouldn't mind playing with them.
"The thing with NC State is I feel more comfortable with them than any other school because I know of the players they have like Richard Howell, Ryan Harrow, and Lorenzo Brown."
Henry hopes to have a decision by the early signing period and maintains that he has no leader.
"No sir, I can't really say there is a team on top of my list," he said. "I'm looking for the best fit for me. I'm not in a rush to pick my school."
