Has shown steady improvement and will continue to get better
Very, very thin; must get stronger
Not at all pysical, gets pushed around in the paint
Face-up game is still raw and needs grooming
Awful free throw shooter
Sometimes tries to be too much of a finese finisher
Summary: Because of his combination of length and athleticism for someone 6-10, Henson has been on the NBA radar since arriving at North Carolina. He is a very intriguing prospect, but his rail-thin frame is a serious concern as he will have to try and battle grown men in the post on a nightly basis. Returning for his junior season gives him another year to grow both physically and as an all-around player. That will do wonders for his ability to contribute at the next level since I just do not think he can be a factor in the league until he adds some muscle or becomes a better outside shooter.
Player Comparison: JaVale McGee/Hakim Warrick. This is a tough one since Henson is such a rare prospect. Henson is similar to McGee in their length, athleticism and shot-blocking ability, but is about 40 pounds lighter than the Wizard center. That is where the Warrick comparison comes in because Warrick is also lengthy and athletic, but has a more similar frame and offensive ability as Henson though Warrick is more skilled on the perimeter.
