A Yankee Kansas in the rotation (most unusual recruit of the year)

This story broke in the summer, but it wasn't really that big so you may have missed it. The Memphis Tigers have another player on their roaster who we have yet to see play this year. The player is CJ Henry.

The name sounds familiar, because, i) he is the brother of touted recruit Xavier Henry and ii) yes, he was a walk-on in 2005 for Kansas

He is currently nursing injuries but eventually he should be able to contribute. How much we don't know, but at 6'3" he has a slight advantage in that there are no "shorties" in the Memphis rotation, other than Willie Kemp, so that may give him a leg up when Calipari wants a more traditional back-court.

For more on how this came to be, be sure to check this Commercial Appeal article from late August 2008.
