If he's going to go after kids who are ranked that low, I really wish he'd take a flyer on some city kids. Not saying they're likely to be any better, but would like that pipeline to start working. Hell that Aston kid from CTK seems to have a similar skill set and size to this kid, why not go after him instead?

I wonder what coach volunteered to go to Florida to recruit this kid? We are now going after the 42nd best player in Florida instead of the top players in Texas? Hit the Juco trail boys for a big!!

Playing alongside Joel Berry in the backcourt at Lake Highland Prep (Fla.) could be a blessing or a curse for Jay Henderson. On one hand, Berry attracts media and college attention to the games. On the other, Henderson might have trouble getting noticed while standing in the shadow of Berry.

For Henderson, though, he loves lining up next to the five-star Berry at the guard position.

“When Joel brings in big schools to our games or practices, I make sure I'm on my game to make a good impression on them,” Henderson said.

This spring and summer, though, Henderson was on his own. Playing for Nike Team Florida in the EYBL – Berry was on Each 1 Teach 1 – Henderson started 16 games, carving out a niche without his high school backcourt mate.

The 6-foot-4 junior was aggressive offensively, looking to create shots for himself and his teammates. Henderson feels he brings a lot to the table – from shooting and defense to basketball IQ, work ethic and coachability.

Plenty of colleges noticed his increased confidence.

“I think [my stock] rose a lot,” Henderson said. “I played against a lot of top players in the country and I held my own against them.”

After a successful summer, Henderson holds offers from Florida State, Memphis, Mississippi State, Stanford, Murray State, Seton Hall, Purdue, Saint Joseph's and George Mason. He also has interest coming from Florida , Miami (Fl.) , UNLV, Colorado and St. John's .

Henderson said he has no favorites and everyone is coming at him equally hard.

“I'm open to all my options right now,” he said, “as long as they have good academics, a stable coaching staff and I can have a good playing career.”

From looking at his twitter feed it does appear he pays attention to us. I guess that means we are involved. Kid seems to have Darrick Wood like qualities, especially shooting ability. Obviously a couple of power players is the glaring need in 14 to replace Gift & Sanchez.

We're loaded in the backcourt. I wonder if he's looking to do a year of Prep. He has acouple of decent offers but might want to raise his stock even more.
