Nice. I'm guessing he'll get a 3* when it's all said and done.

Damn impressive for sophomore highlights. The lack of star rating on this kid has everything to do with his junior year injury, I would guess. Our coaches aren't dummies. I'm betting he'll light it up as a senior.

This has to be the most spread out class we've ever recruited. Having only 1 SC player committed worries me, although it's good that all the out of staters are quality players.

Players from NC, GA, FL, PA, AL, MO, LA, VA, MD. Very unlike our coaches to recruit this way.

Yeah, I think it's kind of cool. Sort of a relatively down year for SC prospects, so good to see we can go outside when needed. We'll still end up with a good number of SC kids though.

you know what this means....the gamecock tent is expanding....did you see the kid from Texas, rated the best safety in the country has us #2.....I don't think he has ever even been in the state of SC......these kids see where we're been ranked the last few years.

I'm sure DJ playing for the Texans has everything to do with that one.

Quote:
USC has had success in recent years recruiting and developing linebackers who were not household names in recruiting circles. The Gamecocks added another of that type Thursday in Jalen Henry (6-1 200) of Foley, AL.

Henry made an unofficial visit Thursday to USC with his parents, met with recruiter and linebackers coach Kirk Botkin and other members of the defensive staff, and also sat down with Steve Spurrier in his office. Before leaving, he made his pledge to join the Gamecocks' 2015 class.

"As soon as I walked in they were greeting me and I felt like I was at home," Henry said. "The players I met in the lockerroom greeted me and I fit in very well. It felt like my own school actually."

Henry has 14 offers with USC his first from an SEC school. He has not been a much talked about recruit this spring because he missed most of his junior season with a broken foot. Botkin first saw Henry in 2010 but Henry didn't hear back from the Gamecock recruiter until earlier this spring when he came by his school and offered him the chance to play for a top ten team in the SEC.

"To be part of something special like this after not getting the opportunity to do anything my whole junior year and having a big injury and not being able to help my football team, it feels good to be out there you know."

One observer compared Henry to former USC linebacker Shaq Wilson as far as his playing skills. He has excellent speed and makes plays all over the field. He recorded 159 tackles as a sophomore.

"I get out on pass drops really well and get out on the perimeter and tackle well and make plays," he said.

Henry also plays baseball and was named to the Coastal Alabama All-Region first team as a third baseman,, but his focus will be on football. He is considering enrolling early but has not made a final decision on that.

Henry is the second linebacker commitment for USC's 2015 class and the 15th overall.

Default Re: 2015 - Jalen Henry

This could be another steal pickup.
One thing I noticed from his film...when he is engaged with his blocker his handwork and punch is very physical to get blockers off him.

Also, has a nose for the ball and when he tackles, he was form tackling and wrapping up...I almost felt like I was watching a more polished version of Jonathan Walton.

I do agree, doesn't have the size of a Bama LB (seems they like guys 6'2 and up)...but Auburn, that would be a tricky one.

It's great to have the stars, but I love these Ryan Brewer kind of kids. Hard nosed, wants to play ball, ready to prove himself on the national scene.

Ryan Brewer was the Ohio state player of the year and broke the career rushing records for that state, we just stole him from osu but he had major offers...Brewer had 3*'s as I would almost promise this kid will before Feb next year. I agree with the hard nosed player, if he is anything like Shaq Wilson then Coach Wilson will love being his Quality Control Coordinator.

My favorite part of the video was how he was pointing out things to the rest of the defense...and I thought it was junior film. Wow. It looks like we've got a smart one coming in. Shaq Wilson is a great comparison.

Ryan Brewer, he brings back good and bad memories. his So. year in HS he ran all over my school, and my school is a big time program in Ohio. I knew then he would be something special.

This was my thought when watching his film. Smart, always has a nose for the ball, a little undersized.

Good looking player though.
