Springfield Southeast power forward Jalen Henry is a prospect that continues to be underrated. The four-man has a good back to the basket skill set and an improving face up game. Henry is efficient with his touches and also rebounds at a nice clip. One program that is showing interest in him is Eastern Illinois. Henry returned the favor as he visited EIU over the weekend.
“Eastern visit was very fun and the coaching staff was very cool and showed a lot of love. The game was also exciting. They played really well.”
What did he like about the coaching staff?
“They were all into the game and excited about me being there.”
Henry discussed what the Eastern Illinois coaches said they were looking for in a prospect.
“They need a rebounder and scorer in the program and they want to rebuild.”
No offer was extended on the visit, but they are definitely very interested in the services of the talented 2014 post.
“They want me to do an official visit next year.”
Henry runs on the circuit with the Southwest Jets.
