Chi-Town Prospect Rising Fast
Andre Henley is a swingman you can’t miss.
by Antonio Curro – Midwest PUNKS Editor
Andre Henley has been a major player on the local circuit in Chicago for a while. But it was only last June that the 6-5 swingman took it to another level.
The De La Salle Institute product put up a monster performance at the Reebok Proving Grounds combine, resulting in an invitation to the Reebok University camp during the July “live” evaluation period. At the camp, he again was sensational, and was much of the same for the legendary Mac Irvin Fire Grassroots travel program.
A strong, powerful talent, Henley has the ability to score inside and out in a dominating fashion. His game features a mix of solid athleticism and versatility—Henley can match up with players on the perimeter and down low. He has continued with strong performances this season, including an explosive performance during the 2008 Windy City Showdown in an overtime loss to Detroit Country Day.
Schools continue to take notice. The likes of Indiana, Illinois, Marquette, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Michigan State and Southern Illinois are just a host of programs showing interest. Expect to see his stock explode over the next year because he can really go!
Henley competes on the Grassroots travel circuit with the Mac Irvin Fire program based out of Illinois.
