Really, really interesting pickup.
Like I said earlier, he was a really high blue chip recruit when he was a freshman, mainly because he was 6-10 already. FWIW, he is still listed as a 3 star recruit today.

I love this clip of Henri in 8th grade

Looks like a great get, but with all young talent, lots of work ahead to compete at the college level...... Do you remember Jesse Chuku?

Welcome to Lehigh Henri !

I remember Jesse well.

The body build is pretty similar. Henri is about an inch taller and 20# heavier but both physically strong.

I think their playing styles may be quite different though..but what do I know :-)

Henri looks to be a pure physical post player, dunking, rebounding and blocking shots. If he does all that, I'll be ecstatic

Jesse on the other hand was a pretty good outside shooter, probably as a result of his youth in Europe.I just looked it up, he shout >40% from the 3 in his senior year.

Just saw this short video.

Perhaps he brings an attitude to the court.
