Xavier Henry Might Be Decommiting Soon
 
I'm still looking for a Link, but there are a lot of substantial rumors going around claiming that Xavier & his father are upset over promises that havent been kept by Bill Self at Kansas.

Kentucky Pusscat fans are going nuts on their board as if Xavier to KY is almost a done deal.

I've been hearing the same thing. Henry decommiting from Kansas leads Kentucky as his most likely destination and Jodie Meeks will definitely not be back if that's the case.

On another site they claim his father is heading out to UCLA to check out the school.

Xavier's recruitment is ridiculous, his father sounds like hes going around looking for an Asst coaching job as well.

Too big an ego... some kids would be blessed and do anything to be offered from a school like that of Kansas, and Henry is just using schools like whores right now.

Its not just Xavier, his father Carl has been handling the recruitment process.

He completely eliminated both Oklahoma schools as options for them, although they're from Oklahoma City.:oldlol:

Now it looks like Carl wants promises to be made for Xavier & CJ, and since Xavier hasnt signed his LOI with Kansas he can go elsewhere.

This is a bad sign for college basketball, this mentor/agent/parent thing seems to become increasingly present now.

It is. I think they should get rid of the one year of college rule. If the kids think they are ready for the NBA, let them go. No reason to hold back the Kobe's, Lebron's, KG's, and Dwight Howard's of the world. Of course there will be some who should not have gone, but that doesn't matter. This would only help the college game. Only the kids who truly want to play college ball will be there.

I actually think they should help promote the NBDL by allowing players to use that route, HS players would be allowed to be drafted in the NBA Draft but they have to spend 1/2 of the season at the NBDL affiliate before they are promoted.

Would UK even have the room for him and CJ both? And what kind of promises could Self not be keeping before Xavier's even on campus?

This question. It smells extremely fishy. I mean, why can`t a kid just go to college without getting all sorts of benefits? The NCAA should crack down on this sort of nepotism, just knock the **** out of it. Like just throw kids out of schools, fine the **** out of schools and coaches, make it stop.

So I ask the same question, what sort of promises were made, and are they the sort that are allowed under NCAA regulations?

BTW, this is the exact kind of **** that is going to come with Lance Stephenson to whatever school he goes to. Schools and coaches are just as guilty as the players and their leech-like mentors/agents/parents, they should not be willing to violate NCAA regulations and take this kind of **** from recruits, but they do because they will be fired if they don`t win, and they need top recruits to win.

You don't need to pointlessly pull up every old thread that is Kansas-related.
