Sources: Xavier Henry to Kentucky

There are various sources reporting that Xavier Henry will leave Kansas and become a Kentucky Wildcat. A Kansas site is saying that C.J. Henry will be coming to Kentucky, as well. It is important to note that this is unofficial (at least for now).

Stay tuned for an official announcement...

By the way, Xavier Henry is #25 on the Google Hot Trends list as of 11:20 p.m.

UPDATE: Kentucky Sports Radio is hearing similar reports

UPDATE #2: A Kansas site is reporting: Andy Katz has picked up on the Henry situation and that Carl has informed him that Kentucky would ultimately be the destination for his sons, not just Xavier, but CJ as well; here is an Andy Katz article from earlier tonight - the important line: "Players can't sign two national letter of intents, so nothing is binding."

FINAL UPDATE: Xavier Henry now states that he will stay with Kansas.

My Message to the Henry's: You know you're joining something special when the head coach of an SEC rival says, "You see, that uniform is not just a uniform. It's a special piece of cloth, it's sacred. It demands our best. Forty-three SEC championships, twenty-five tournament championships, seven national championships. The winningnest program in college basketball. That's what it demands. It demands our best, all our sweat and tears because of the great players that came before us that paved the way - and there are many. No, you see, it's not just another jersey - it's a matter of the heart."

- John Pelphrey, Head Coach of the Arkansas Razorbacks
