Scouting Report: Port Chester Big Man

Reporter Brian Towey has an evaluation report on Jordan Henriquez ...

Jordan Henriquez, a 6-foot-11 center from Port Chester High School in New York, is starting to open some eyes in the area on the quality of his individual play.

Below is a report put together by Brian Towey:

EVALUATION REPORT: Jordan played his first two years at Rice High School in New York City before transferring to Port Chester. He's originally from Baldwin, New York, located on Long Island.

He also attended the Reebok Skills Camp in Philadelphia this past summer.

Standing at a legit 6-foot-10 or 6-foot-11, the physical attribute that jumps out at you with Henriquez is his length.

He's exceptionally long, with a huge wingspan. His frame is very slender, and he's definitely going to have to add some mass for the college level.

His angular body can look almost delicate when paired up with more bulky post players. He's a lefthander -- obviously a great thing for a post- and he excels at altering shots with that spidery reach. Changing shots is probably what he does best, based on what we've seen.

Henriquez isn't what you'd call an explosive athlete, nor does he have great foot speed. But watching him last summer with the Long Island Lightning AAU team, he appeared committed to playing hard at both ends of the floor.

When we saw him in AAU, his energy level and effort were good. He appeared focused. He rebounds his area, his hands are decent, and he'll knock down the occasional shot facing up inside of 10 feet.

According to family members, Jordan had previously received recruiting interest from Marist, St. John's, Drexel, Rhode Island, Toledo and Binghamton.
