NEW YORK (AP) -- Former Putnam City baseball and basketball star CJ Henry says he's considering returning to basketball after three years in pro baseball.

Henry was a first-round draft pick of the New York Yankees and is currently hitting .171 in Class A in the Philadelphia Phillies organization.

He committed to play basketball at Kansas before signing with the Yankees after the 2005 draft.

Henry tells the New York Times he'll decide what he wants to do after next baseball season and may decide to go to the same school as his brother Xavier.

Xavier Henry will be a junior this year at Putnam City and is considering Kansas, Memphis and North Carolina.
