Putnam City guard Xavier Henry said Monday that he would have to reconsider his favorite schools if Kansas coach Bill Self left Lawrence for Oklahoma State.
"If he was to leave, I won't say I wouldn't consider Kansas anymore, but I'd have to re-evaluate where I am with them,” Henry said.
And while the 6-foot-6 junior said it might be unlikely the Cowboys completely jump into the mix, he would probably give OSU another look with Self at the helm.
"I would give them half the year and watch to see what happens at OSU,” Henry said. "(Just) to see what's going on before I make my decision.”
Asked if that's the only way OSU would have a shot, he responded: "Yeah, or if (Memphis) coach (John) Calipari went there.”
Henry said his thought process wouldn't change quite as much if Calipari left Memphis.
"I'm close with everyone at Memphis, even assistant coaches,” he said. "So, Memphis would still stay at the top.”
