Texas high school junior forward John Henson, a five star recruit listed at #24 according to Scout.com, became the first class of 2009 commitment for UNC. Henson is listed at 6-10, 200 lbs and is averaging 24 ppg. He looks like a kid with a lot of upside right now and has another full season and a half to develop further. Considering the anxiety over the late commits for the class of 2008 it is nice to see UNC get Henson on board early in the process .
Also, Tyler Wilson of the Purdue student paper emailed to say that he thought Henson was making a huge mistake opting for UNC and will only ride the bench. 😉
