The bizarre recruitment of Xavier Henry appears to be taking another crazy turn. Following Calipari's exit from Memphis, Xavier and his brother were being courted heavily by Kentucky and Kansas, but in the end they chose the Jayhawks.
However, there are rumblings that the Henry camp is very, very unhappy with some "promises" made by Bill Self and the KU staff.
Another kicker involving this situation is the draft status of Jodie Meeks. Jodie has every intention of remaining in the NBA draft if he finds a suitor in the late first or early second round. It was widely believed that Xavier wanted to attend the University of Kentucky and play for Coach Cal, but his family's influence swayed him towards Lawrence, Kansas.
Considering that Xavier had already signed a LOI to play at Memphis and was released, he wasn't able to sign a LOI with the Jayhawks, leaving open the opportunity for Xavier to change his mind anyday.
Stay tuned...The Henry's are a never ending recruitment!
