Isaiah Henry has quickly turned into one of the southeast’s most sought after guards in the 2025 class. The 6-foot-4 rising junior at Concord (NC) Cannon School has averaged 14.1 points with the Team CP3 program on Nike’s EYBL 16u Circuit.

“I’m a downhill type of player,” Henry told On3. “I get most of my buckets at and around the rim, I can facilitate for my teammates. My main focus this summer is to become a three-level scorer, I’ve been shooting it better. I watch a lot of LeBron James, I think he’s a driver and a facilitator, and he’s been doing it for twenty-plus years. Growing up, I would be in my driveway trying to mirror him, have that ‘it-factor.’”

On3 caught up with Isaiah Henry after a recent live viewing to update his recruitment.

In Henry’s words

“I have ten offers right now,” Henry said. “Appalachian State was my first, USF, Georgia, Clemson, Virginia Tech, Georgetown, East Carolina, Temple, High Point, and East Tennessee State,” Henry said. “I would say Georgia and Clemson are the two schools on me the hardest right now. Them and Georgetown too.”

Clemson: “We have a great relationship. Coach (Brad) Brownell got on my early. Obviously, with my brother (KJ Henry) going there, I’ve been down there a lot. I’ve taken a couple of basketball specific visits as well. Coach (Sean) Dixon and Coach (Dick) Bender have really done well building our relationship. They’re all involved in my recruitment. They text me, call me. It’s like a real family down there. 

“It’s a great atmosphere down there, Most people just focus on football there, and their football is great. But their basketball environment is awesome there, and they’ve turned into a good basketball school.”

Georgia: “My brother was recruited by Georgia in 2016-17, so I went down there on a visit with him. But I haven’t been down for a basketball visit yet. They love my game. Coach (Mike) White tells me he loves my size and how aggressive I am, and that I’m an attacking guard. They’ve noticed my work ethic, that I’ve been in the weight room and working on my game.”

Georgetown: “I talk a lot with Coach (Jeff) Battle; we’ve gotten close. He’s a good family friend, too, so that always helps. He knows a lot about me. I know Coach (Ed) Cooley is recruiting there at a high level. They got Dontrez Styles to transfer in, a North Carolina guy. I’ve noticed a lot of what they’ve been doing, and I’m definitely going to be watching closely what Georgetown does now. Coach Cooley won a lot at Providence and turned things around there. I definitely want to visit up there this summer.”

“I’m hearing from Mississippi State and NC State,” Henry said. “I’m hearing from a lot of schools, but of the ones who haven’t offered, I’m hearing from both of them a good bit.”

In Henry’s words

“My brother tries to stay out of my recruitment like that,” Isaiah Henry said. “I know, he knows that this is my decision, and wherever I go, he is going to support me.

“I’m going to look at the fanbase and the tradition of the school. That is always huge, you want to go to a winning school and a school that has tradition. I want to come into a school and make an impact. Not necessarily start, but have a role.

“I’ve played on the ball or off the ball, so the style of play won’t really play a role like that. I’ve played all the perimeter positions between Cannon and in travel ball, so I’m used to that.”
