Michigan high school basketball is creeping toward a finish, and some players are making a name for themselves. Jordan Henry is making noise and is in position to help lead his team to a strong finish. He is an explosive guard who gets baskets and is very difficult to defend because of his versatility. He recently showed his scoring abilities by dropping a career high 39 points in a win over Jackson. Henry is a 6-2 senior combo guard at Okemos High School. He is having an outstanding season and is looking to finish his high school career strong. Henry is averaging 21.4ppg, 5rpg, and 2apg. I would expect him to lead his Okemos team on a run in state playoffs. I recently caught up with Jordan Henry for a Question and Answer session.
