The 49ers are coached by Purdue graduate Alan Major, who is in his first season at the school. His staff, though, includes former Virginia Tech assistant Ryan Odom, who Henry knows well. "Coach Odom offered me when he was at Virginia Tech, and now he's an assistant at Charlotte," Henry said. "He still stayed in contact with me the whole time. Some of these coaches - and I won't mention names - they'd be at these high conferences and they'd say they heard about me but they'd never talk to me themselves. Then when they drop down to a smaller conference I'm their man. What that told me is that they didn't think I was a top-level talent.
This just made my morning. With the growth I am already seeing out of young guys and our depth issues being solved, I am growing very optimistic about the future of this program. Welcome to Niner Nation Mr Henry! PS - can anyone help me with how to pronounce his first name? I don't wanna butcher it.
Great to hear, needed another guy that could play pg coming in as a freshman. As Iron9er said, if we can add a power forward player, that'd be all 5 positions in one recruiting class.
Sounds like a very nice signing. I just hope everyone here now stays, everyone remains healthy and eligible. It would be nice to have a full roster for a change.
Kid seems to have it together. I like it. So are we expecting him to be a big time contributor his first year. If so seems we're a little heavy in the guard area. I wonder if they are banking on Luka not coming back? I sure hope not.
First dual-sport star in Charlotte history?

I think Normmm was probably right all along, we'll be really good next year.
Did some searching trying to figure out what type of player he is found these two threads on the VCU board The goodhttp://www.vcuramnation.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4012&hilit=Henry the not so good, but I think it's documented in that article that is posted.http://www.vcuramnation.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4426&hilit=henry

This is the closest to a true PG, we'll have, I'd say. Good to hear. So he is a 2 star right?
Why has it yet to show up on Ninerreport or the Observer?
Any chance he becomes our first football recruit?
VCURamNation: In addition to being recognized as a great basketball player, you are also known to be a darn good football player as well. You have said in the past that you would consider both sports if opportunities presented themselves. How does that situation affect your commitment to VCU at this point? Pierria’: It doesn’t at all because honestly yes, ever since I was a little kid I’ve played all sports from basketball, football, baseball, and track, so i wanted to make history like just a few people that played both. But when it all came to reality I would have to choose which one will pay my bills in the future. If I wanted to be the best, or even make it to the pros then I would have to work after the work is over if you know what i mean, so in the off-season i wouldn’t be able to work on that position and get better because i would still be in a regular season in the other sport. Then it also takes time from my education, so really i have to choose one that i know i will work harder in, therefore i will live and stay in a gym but i would only spend a couple hours on a football field. So really I’m just going off of God-blessed talent because I just play to have fun and be a kid, I couldn’t do it for a living… http://www.vcuramnation.com/2010/10/qa-with-2011-vcu-commit-pierria-henry/
