Earlywine on Henry: “He brings a presence in the post. He’s about 230 pounds right now, but he should develop into a 240-pound freshman. He can really rebound the ball and affect the game in the paint. As I watched (Washington State’s) DeAngelo Casto impact the game in the paint with his athletic ability against us (on Nov. 16, 2009), that’s what I think Jaylen can do. He’s a quiet, humble person who is a very good student.” 

High School: Graduated from Cheyenne High School in 2010. In his senior season, Henry averaged 13.4 points, 1.0 assists, 1.2 blocked shots and 11.4 rebounds per game. He had 17 double-doubles, including his last eight games of the season. He had 21 points and 15 rebounds in a win over Faith Lutheran, and also had a season-high 21 points against Cimarron-Memorial. His best rebounding game was 17 versus Shadow Ridge when he also had 19 points on 7-of-8 shooting from the field. He had six points and 12 rebounds in a 73-57 win against Pacific Hills, the school his future Eastern teammate Geoffrey Allen played for (Allen did not play in that game). Cheyenne finished 20-8 overall and 13-3 in the Northwest League. As a junior, Henry averaged 9.6 points, 9.6 rebounds, 1.1 blocks and 1.1 assists while making 52 percent of his shots from the field. He helped Cheyenne to a 22-5 record and the Class 4A Sunset Region semifinals. He earned Nevada Class 4A Sunset Region All-Northwest League second team honors. He also played on the Cheyenne varsity as a sophomore, averaging 3.5 points and helping the team finish 19-8 overall and 10-4 in the league. Henry also played on the summer tournament AAU circuit with Las Vegas Dogcatchers Elite.
