NBA projection:
NBA scouts have been intrigued by Henry because of his length, athleticism and the ability to play either forward spot. He’s projected as a second-round pick or could go undrafted, but he does have the physical tools to have a chance to play at the next level. He’s got to get tougher and more consistent in order to do that. His shot selection will have to improve and he’ll have to become a more consistent rebounder. But he’s got talent.

2011-12 Season:
Henry earned second-team All-SEC honors from the league’s coaches after a solid senior season in which he finished 18th in the league in scoring and 11th in blocked shots. Henry earned an SEC player-of-the-week award after a two-game stretch in which he averaged 18 points, 6.5 boards and two assists in victories over Mississippi State and Georgia.

Key statistics:
12.2 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 1.5 apg, 3.4 tpg, 1.0 bpg, 30.6 mpg, .454 FG, .347 3PT, .732 FT

Cool statistic:
Henry was only the second player in Ole Miss history to rack up more than 1,000 points and 100 blocked shots in his career.

Reminds me of:

What Insiders Say:
Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy
"He came to us as a stretch four and he evolved into a 3/4. At 6-9, he showed enough perimeter skill to make me think he can have a position at the next level."

What Outsiders Say:
Auburn coach Tony Barbee
"Terrance Henry is one of most versatile guys in the country — 6-10 small forward, shooting guard who can play inside and out. Difficult matchup for most teams on any given night."
