Xavier Henry
Team: Kansas JayhawksHeight: 6-6 Born: --
Class-Eligibility: Fr-FrWeight: 220 Birthplace: Oklahoma City, OK


Scouting Report

A promising guard expected to be selected in the first round of the draft, Henry is forgoing his final three years of college eligibility. He completed his freshman season with Kansas as the team's second-leading scorer at 13.4 points per game, while shooting 41.8 percent from beyond the arc and also averaging 4.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.5 steals. Henry got his collegiate career off to an outstanding start, making 8 of 12 shots - 5 of 8 from 3-point range - for 27 points in a season-opening win over Hofstra. He wasn't nearly as effective in his final six games with the Jayhawks, shooting 43.2 percent from the field to average 9.7 points and 5.0 boards. Those struggles may cost him status as a lottery selection after he was considered one of the top freshmen in the country. Henry's physique could increase his value. His size makes him a strong candidate to be ready for the NBA immediately, and he's expected to help a team fill a need as a swingman. He is also capable of playing forward, while his shooting ability would be beneficial out of the backcourt. That versatility should be attractive to a team on draft day. Coming out of high school, Henry was one of the top recruits and originally committed to Memphis, only to change to Kansas after coach John Calipari left the Tigers for Kentucky. Henry comes from an athletic family, as his father Carl played in the NBA after attending Kansas while his brother C.J. is a freshman with the Jayhawks.
