OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -John Calipari's move to Kentucky has cost him one of his prized recruits.
Oklahoma City high school star Xavier Henry announced Thursday that he would not follow Calipari after he left Memphis, and committed instead to play at Kansas.
Henry is considered the third-rated prospect in the country by both Rivals.com and ESPNU. He averaged 28.3 points and 6.5 rebounds while shooting 44 percent from 3-point range last season in leading Putnam City High School to the state title in the class that features Oklahoma's largest schools.
Putnam City also won the Class 6A title in Henry's freshman year.
Henry chose not to follow in the footsteps of DeMarcus Cousins, another top 5 prospect who followed Calipari from Memphis to Kentucky.
