Populating Point Variable in Modelbuilder

I am trying to use Extract By Circle with the Center Point parameter being filled with the XCENTROID and YCENTROID fields gotten from a Zonal Geometry table. However, the Center Point parameter (or any Point variable for that matter) does not accept connectors (giving the error message "Only a variable can be connected to a process") and does not accept inline variable substitution such as %XCENTROID% (see attached screenshot with red box around entered text). What gives?


I could generate points, buffer them, and clip the raster instead, but Extract By Circle would greatly simplify my model, especially considering that I get the centroids from Zonal Statistics already.
