Class of 2018 Ben Davis forward Aaron Henry is a four-star prospect, according to the 247Composite and was named a core Indiana junior all-star.

Henry recently took an unofficial visit to Bloomington and was watched by assistant coach Ed Schilling on Wednesday night to open the first July evaluation period.

The 6-foot-5 forward led Ben Davis to a Class 4A state championship in March and is starring for Indiana PROS this summer. We’ve compiled close to two minutes of video from his play on the adidas Gauntlet circuit from this spring:

    Can’t help but notice that he is another lefty. Seems like more than a coincidence that we have offered a lot of left handed players. I’m fine with that, but just seems unusual.

  • Greg M. Bailey

    I think with his size he is going to have to move over and be a shooting guard in college. His outside shot wasn’t bad and he handles the ball pretty well for a “forward”, but I think he would fit better as a guard in the B1G.

  • iugradmark

    I was thinking the same thing. They either think he can move to the guard spot or I wonder if he is still growing and could add a couple of inches.

  • Lance76

    If he could develop into a shooting guard, then with his post moves he could take the opposition under the basket and abuse them. I remember Damon Bailey getting an “and one” under the basket during his career at IU.

    I will say he has a very soft stroke with that jumper. Ball just nestles into the net.

  • THRyan

    Looks like he put it up with his off hand a couple times too.

  • Donnie Vick

    I think that should be 4A state championship.

  • TomJameson

    Ahhh, open growth plates. What every freshman on the IU basketball team needs to have. 🙂

    This kid looks like a Ray Allen type player only a better shooter and more mobile than Allen. Much more skilled player than Allen though, so I would expect he will lead us to the final four a couple times at least, especially with a maestro like Archie at the helm telling him let it fly if the slightest daylight is available. I seriously think we’re gonna win 6 b1g championships and go to 5 final fours in the next 3 years – our future is that bright. Expert insight from a 1:45 clip…no charge people. GO HOOSIERS!

  • VOXAC30

    He has a nice mid-range jumper… don’t see that much now days.

  • Bill Graham

    I’m sorry, did I read that you think he’s a better shooter than Ray Allen? The Ray Allen? The guy who made more 3’s in the NBA than any player in the entire history of the league?

    based on the video, ya he is. i don’t think he missed a shot in that video clip.
