Shooting guard Xavier Henry, the No. 3 in the nation according to, was granted his release by the University of Memphis on Tuesday, according to The Oklahoman.

Henry has re-opened his recruiting after John Calipari's decision to leave Memphis for the University of Kentucky.

"I'd still say it's between ... three schools -- Kansas, Kentucky and Memphis," Carl Henry, Xavier's father, told the paper.

Responding to a Sporting News report, new Memphis coach Josh Pastner denied that he'd spoken to Carl about a job as director of player operations and said that a deal for Carl to take the job was not in place. Carl told The Oklahoman that he has not heard from Pastner about the job offer.

Xavier is going to go to Kansas! Sucks to be Memphis! Hope they keep 1 or 2 guys.
