Prep Henry won’t decide until spring
Xavier Henry, a 6-foot-6 senior guard from Putnam City (Okla.) High, who had surgery Thursday to repair a broken cheekbone, told ESPN.com he will not choose a school until the spring signing period.
Henry’s dad, Carl, on Thursday said his son – who ultimately will choose between Kansas and Memphis – will be on medication and not be able to practice basketball the next four to six weeks.
It’s possible he will announce his decision on ESPNU shortly after returning to action.
“He likes both schools. He wasn’t ready to pick a school yet,” Carl Henry told Zagsblog.net.
KU coach Bill Self had dinner with Carl Henry on Wednesday night. “Both coaches have been here,” Henry said of Self and Memphis’ John Calipari.
Michael Snaer, a 6-4 guard from Moreno Valley, Calif., tells Rivals.com he also will sign in the spring. Snaer has a final five of KU, Missouri, Florida State, UCLA and Marquette.
