KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - C.J. Henry enrolled at Kansas on Tuesday and will be eligible to play basketball next season.
The move reunites Henry with his brother, Xavier, and completes one of the most talented incoming classes Kansas ever had.
Coach Bill Self said the 6-foot-4 Henry will be an immediate contributor despite not having played organized basketball for four years.
Self had been recruiting the Henry brothers since 2005. C.J. played baseball in the New York Yankees system for three years but enrolled at Memphis last year. Xavier had signed with Memphis, but both decided to play elsewhere when coach John Calipari left the Tigers for Kentucky.
