Ranked by Scout.com as the No. 20 player at his position, Henry will remain in Tigertown through Saturday.

"I just want to get to meet more of the coaches, get to check out the campus, get a better look at the campus, really just to see the surroundings," Henry told CUTigers earlier this week.

A former high school/AAU teammate T.J. Sapp, Henry's heard a lot about Clemson from the Tigers' sophomore guard.

"He said he loves it, it's a great college time. He said he loves basically everything about it," Henry said.

What stands out to Henry about Clemson?

"It's in the ACC, so that's definitely a step up, because they're one of the best basketball conferences in the country. I like the fact that coach [Brad] Brownell is a great coach. He's a winning coach and he loves winning."

Clemson assistant Steve Smith has served as the point man on Henry since his arrival to Tigertown.

"He's been doing a pretty good job, just staying on top of his job, staying in touch with me and coming to see me when he can," Henry said. "He's definitely done a great job."

Miami, USF and South Carolina are also in the mix for Henry, who doesn't plan on making his decision until the spring signing period.

No other school besides Clemson has an official visit lined up with Henry. Whether or not he takes other official visits this fall is still up in the air.

"We've just been talking about it. I just feel comfortable enough [with Clemson] to take a visit. I just feel comfortable and feel like I have a good enough relationship with the coaching staff to take a visit now," he said.

Henry is currently enrolled at Faith Baptist School in Fort Pierce, Fla.
