Recruits Will Stay

Kansas City, MO - Kansas coach Bill Self's fence-mending trip worked: Xavier and C.J. Henry are still coming to Lawrence to play for the Jayhawks.

A day after traveling to Oklahoma City to clear the air with two of his prized recruits, Self said Wednesday that Xavier and C.J. will play for Kansas next season.

The two brothers originally planned to play together at Memphis, but left in April when coach John Calipari bolted for Kentucky. After briefly considering following Calipari, they signed at Kansas, where three family members played.
Self said the family's biggest concern was a newspaper story over the weekend that they said portrayed the brothers as selfish and uninterested in attending college classes.
Self said the brothers never gave any indication that they wouldn't play at Kansas.
