Kansas freshman Xavier Henry can’t escape questions about the likelihood of him jumping to the NBA after this season.

The former Putnam City standout and The Oklahoman’s Super Five Player of the Year for 2009 prefers to stay in the present.

"I just try to stay focused on my main goal of coming here and helping my team win the national championship,” Henry said. "I don’t think too far ahead.

"If I’m ready, I’m ready. And if I’m not, I’m not.”

According to several early NBA mock drafts, Henry is ready.

The projections:

NBA-draft.com: No. 9 to Philadelphia

NBAdraft.net: No. 11 to Minnesota

Insidehoops.com: No. 12 to Chicago

Mynbadraft.com: No. 15 to Minnesota

Draftexpress.com: No. 15 to Houston

NBAdraftguru: No. 16 to Chicago
