Yes right after mentioning a center/forward outside the Top 100 at the time....January...lol, that was coincidental. Kayne Henry is a very very solid player on a very good team.


https://www.nwfdailynews.com/sports/20190109/nwf-state-men-roll-over-commodores-78-65, would absolutely love the ILLINI score this kid, he could seriously compete for starting minutes immediately and plays similiar to dare I say Gill?

Someone seriously get some video of this "2*" kid to the staff...he is only this ranking because he is an unknown here in the states...go to Northwest Florida OA and recruit this kid. The PR alone would be worth adding him to Kofi, January and this team...instant fan favorite I think.
I know its a highlight reel, but I really like this kid a lot. He is ultra quick and his athleticism is off the charts.
 
Haven’t looked for any other videos or highlights but there are a ton of kids that could put together tapes like this. I trust BU and OA’s evaluation, but not impressed.
Even for a highlight video, a lot of his made 3s don’t touch the rim. I feel like that’s often a good indicator of shooting ability. I also like his size, ability to shoot off the catch or dribble, and swag.

Given this team’s current makeup (and assuming everyone returns next year), I think adding a pure shooter that can guard opposing 3s is more important than adding an athletic wing with an unreliable outside shot.
