Considering the two schools he's choosing from could swing the balance of power in the national title race for 2010, I'd say this is a newsworthy story.

I will say this: as much as I hate reality TV, I'd love to see the Henry family vs. the Gordon family in some sort of reality show. That'd be great.

The kid really should be playing pro. He seems to have no interest in school whatsoever.

Father Carl is the real culprit here, not just pumping up Xavier, but also saying C.J. is better than all the players Kansas has on scholarship. Bill Self was in Oklahoma City today, trying to sort out this mess.

Does this clown/clown's father think going to Kentucky will help his stock?
Cousins/Orton/Wall/Patterson/Bledsoe/rest of team .... yeah he's going to get a TON of catches, I wouldn't be surprised if stat-wise he was less impressive than Jrue Holiday at Kentucky.

Tell your dad to get out of your business if he wants you to make money and buy him a nice car...

This would be huge for Kentucky and I'd rather have Xavier Henry over Jodie Meeks.

EDIT: Not happening.

The problem with college athletes IMO is that they think its the school's privilege to have them...
They should be the ones feeling privileged to play for a storied program like Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, UNC, etc.....
Sheesh, they really should lift the 1 year rule so that these egoheads can be a bust in the NBA, be publically scrutinized and embarassed and go to Europe -_-

Xavier has a pro body, but he isnt a game changer because he can't create his own shot, has average handles, and is an average athlete. Xavier is an almost identical specimen to Martell Webster about 3 years ago, Has the size, length, strength, range, and is a prototype wing physically but he doesnt have the scoring ability to take over a game. Xavier relies on his big size, but if you dont have the handles or explosiveness to the basket to use your size advantage while in motion then you're basically a HDTV without cable.

At best he could become a shorter Carmelo Anthony if he can improve his handles and develop a back to basket game like Melo has done.
