BIOGRAPHY: A strong, powerful forward that improved every season at Alabama, finishing his 2007-08 junior season with 17.8 points per game while making 59.8 percent of his shots and grabbing an SEC-leading 10.1 rebounds. He also added a career-high 2.0 blocks per game. Hendrix is an imposing figure and has outstanding strength. He is fundamentally sound and aggressive in the paint, but could have trouble making the transition to the NBA if he relies too much on his power. Hendrix is considered undersized for a power forward and his speed is a major concern, which could pose problems against leaner, quicker opponents. His strength was on display in a season-opening win over Troy when he made 9-of-11 shots, scored 22 points, grabbed a career-high 23 rebounds and blocked two shots. Hendrix needs to improve from the free-throw line considering his tendency to play physical. He shot just 59.4 percent from the line in his three years at Alabama, including a career-worst 53.7 this season. Hendrix is expected to be selected late in the first round or early in the second.
