John Henson Rising
Despite poor results in athletic testing albeit hindered by an ankle injury, wiry North Carolina forward is seemingly now a lock for the top ten in the Draft. Athletically-gifted with a great motor, Henson has the makings of a premier interior defender despite his slender frame. He needs to add a lot of muscle, but has already steadily shown improvement, adding 20-25 pounds between the summer entering his freshman year and now.
Detroit sitting at No. 9 is the leader for the 6'10" forward after blowing away fellow big men prospects in the latest team workout according to sources. Milwaukee at No. 12 and Houston at No. 14, 16 and 18, would love to trade up into the top ten to acquire the shot-blocking services of Henson.
