Weaknesses: Defensively he struggles with the quickness of other power forwards and his lack of height could give him some problems … Standing at just 6-8, he doesnt possess great athleticism to make up for it … Hendrix doesnt feel comfortable stepping out on the perimeter and guarding quicker and more athletic players, his lateral speed is not good … Needs to improve face-up the basket game and find his go-to move inside … Cant pick-and-pop because of his shooting ability is still inconsistent … Lacks a great form on his shot, he brings the ball back behind his head which causes him to have a slow release … Hendrix must work on developing his mid-range jump shot. Lack of explosiveness, mobility and lateral quickness limits him on both ends … Has to improve his first step while driving to the rim … Free-throw percentage is only 53%, far below where it needs to be … Has to work on finishing better with his left hand …
His father is a high school basketball coach
Voted first team all SEC
2006 & 2007 All-SEC All-American Candidate
2008 – Led University of Alabama in scoring and rebounding
Weaknesses: Has a huge base with incredibly thick and strong legs, however his strength and thickness also limits his quickness Undersized at the power forward position at 6-7 and a half, lacks great length and struggles to get shots over longer defenders Lacks great foot speed, which limits his offensive ability, defensively and rebounding the ball out of position as well as in transition Should work to increase his free throw percentage considering how often he gets to the line, but has shown improvement Should look to improve upon his mid range jump shot, which shows potential Lacks the explosiveness and size to be a real factor as a shot blocker
Notes: Unfounded hype had him considering a jump straight to the league out of high school Came in as a top 10 national recruit and has struggled some to live up to the expectations
