Sorry, but if you held a gun to my head and told me to choose Meeks or Henry, I would take Meeks.
Henry is more pro-ready, but he doesn't have the experience of playing in college. If you need proof of what an experienced college team can do, go back and watch Monday night's championship game. UNC was superior because they had pivotal leaders at key points in the game.
FWIW, for everybody saying we would have senior leadership out the wazoo next season, if Patterson and Meeks leave and the major minutes go to Wall, Henry, and Cousins(assuming they all come, which wont happen), where is the senior leadership going to come from? Perry Stevenson? I realize Cal took Memphis to the championship game on the back of Derrick Rose, but for the most part, you need a senior clutch performer.
Meeks will be an All-American if he returns next season, it's just a matter of first or second team.
