Xavier Henry has set a visit for this fall.
A 6-foot-6, 210-pound shooting guard from Putnam City High School in Oklahoma City, Okla., Henry is the ranked No. 1 shooting guard in the Class of 2009 by Rivals.
He has narrowed his list to Kansas, Memphis, UCLA and Texas, and says he will visit Kansas for “Late Night in the Phog,” Kansas’ version of Midnight Madness.
Kansas is also recruiting Lance Stephenson of Brooklyn Lincoln and Dominic Cheek of St. Anthony, although neither player has yet scheduled a visit. Stephenson had planned to go for the Jayhawk Invitational in May, but ended up missing the visit.
