John Henson (UNC)



DE Profile

6'10 UNC Freshman Future number 1 pick in the 2010 or 2011 draft

The question for Henson shouldn't be what can he do at 6'10, rather what can't he do?

The guy is amazingly talented. I dont want to gush too much about his skills, but when October rolls around, see for yourself!

Add much-needed functional mass?

Re: John Henson

That will come with time. Interestingly enough his fellow Texas all star big man had a similar frame in college.

Re: John Henson

Sounds like the same thing I heard about Marvin Williams coming out of high school.

Re: John Henson

He looked impressive in the McDonalds game but he's definitely gotta bulk up. He weighs 185 at 6'10! But, yeah he's going to be good.

If only Tyler Hansborough stayed one more year. A Henson playing with a Muppet!

Re: John Henson

Marvin Williams isn't 6'10 and can only wish he could handle the ball like Henson.

As for Smak, that aint right lol

Re: John Henson

Henson is more like Bosh, but by all indications he's not coming out this year.

Re: John Henson

Has been a little underwhelming but I still think he will be a good player
Meanwhile Deon Thompson is playing pretty well
Making himself into a 1st rounder I think

LOL. Only way he doesn't come out is if he disappoints.

Re: John Henson (UNC)

Would be wise to stay in school. Physically he is not ready, and outside of off the ball defense I have not seen anything that great from him thus far. I'm a UNC fan too, this kid just needs a lot of work until he is NBA ready.

Re: John Henson (UNC)

He is like Anthony Randolph but even less developed than Randolph was at that stage
