Some people just can't see the forest for the trees. Or they just refuse to understand, have an agenda or really have no clue about the bigger picture. If Henson stays we don't have the room to get Jenard Jarreau. Since Jarreau came here and not at Ok St we have a better shot to get his 4 star younger cousin DeJon Jarreau class of 2016. It's relationships that we are finally building.
Look below and learn JJ. You really have no clue on this subject. You are trolling here. Stick to the topic you know best, Cowen bashing please.

Here's the updated list.
Offers from UMass, Washington, UL-Lafayette, UNO, Oklahoma, Tulsa, Southeastern, Memphis, LA Tech, Boston College, Oral Roberts, Northwestern State, Tulane, Miami, Oklahoma State and Temple. UNLV, Baylor, Wake, Vanderbilt, Arkansas and Arizona are also recruiting him.
What are you talking about? It is confirmed that the staff did not want Henson to leave and tried to get him to stay.
That makes your above scenario moot and especially bizarre from the guy whose position it is that we can't be successful and we should just hold our breath and hope we get lucky once every 10 or fifteen years. Now what appears to be problematic attrition is just a sly scheme to take over Louisiana basketball recruiting? Ok.
link? I personally don't see him ever getting more than 15 minutes with this roster, This thread is really gone on too long, IMHO.
The source is his mom on Twitter. She yelled at the former Hullabaloo editor who also assumed that Henson had been run off to make way for new talent.
It goes on because the idea that he has been "replaced" by any of the freshman is not at all yet clear if not foolish. I haven't seen much or any of these guys but at first glance all the big men coming in are pure 5s or 4's without much offense. It's not clear to me that any of them can play traditional power forward much less a face-up power forward.
Just the threat of an outside shot at the 4 opens up the floor for all the athletic wings we just got, who are the highlights of the recruiting class. Henson was coming on at the end of the year and would have been in the regular rotation regardless of who was coming in as a freshman.
His mom, really.
Too slow to cover/play the 3, not strong enough to cover/play the 4. If you knew you were getting Jareau maybe you prefer dumping Smith over Henson. The fact is that it's done. Time will tell what the right choice was, but I really believe he realized the minutes were not going to increase and left, TU really couldn't do anything about it. It's really about time to move on from this topic.
You've got to be kidding me. You are missing the entire point which is that it was not a choice. A player who would have been in the rotation asked to leave, something that is becoming an ugly trend during the Conroy era.
As for Jarreau, the data says that he was not a better player than Henson last season. I'm just telling you what the data says. Also, given how closely some of you are supposed to be watching this program, it seems no one remembers that Henson was on a tear in the stretch run. Sometimes the light bulb goes on for a player.
He wasn't going to get an increase in the average minutes he played last year, how does that concept escape you? Jarreau played more minutes, in a better league and can go inside. We need interior guys over an average athletic 3/4. Really hte kid could have gone to Oak St, have my doubts Henson gets a better offer.
Can you just agree to disagree on any topic? God its tiresome. I have been one of the harshest EC critics, this loss is really not a big deal considering who we have coming in......if I was Henson I too would probably rather go elsewhere and get more minutes. It's primarily a playing time issue IMHO. Let's at least see how TU and his career plays out.
