I'd expect his recruiting to heat up this year....I hope he sticks with us, because he is the type player Ellis Johnson and Auburn could use in their system.

If we can carve out our own little piece of the pie in Bama that only helps this program get better.

NC, SC, GA, FL and AL..you can field a competitve football with just those states.

Throw in our connections in the Northeast and we have a very fertile recruiting tent to go through...heck, you could build a competitve team with just SC and GA players.

I have not forgotten about Brewer's creds, but you're right. I'm just hoping that he turns out to be another under-rated player overlooked by the homestate school(s) who goes on to a big college career. And while I'm hoping and dreaming, why not hope that he has one of those crazy games someday against his homestate school... like against Bama in the SEC Championship Game...? :-)

If he is even half as smart as Shaq Wilson, then we will have lucked out.

Here is the write up for his ranking

Henry was given a three-star rating and a grade of 84. The stocky inside backer missed most of his junior season but his sophomore film flashes a lot of ability and an instinct for the football. He will be a definite potential riser and his senior film will be a must-watch.

From an Alabama poster:

Quote:
Really, really good kid. I helped coach him in Baseball All Stars a while back. Played QB for the middle school and early Freshman team. Started LB SO year and really took over as disruptive, mean streak. Broke his foot early in the year last year and the team wasnt the same. Not as tall as you might want but at around 6'. Dad is a really good guy as well. Probably not going to be rated 5* but has 5* work ethic and will be a good one for you.

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.
he could easily be 230 by the time he gets to Columbia....he faster than Shaq Wilson.....

Article via Rivals

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.

He was a 2* and now he's a 3*. The fact that he's getting a ratings bump before his season even starts, tells us he has potential to be a big time player.

He is a part of the Alabama All-star team for this season. They announced it a few weeks ago. The Alabama All-star team that plays against Mississippi's All-star team. Pretty much like the Shrine bowl for North and South Carolina.

Anybody know why this kid doesn't have many offers? He plays in 7A football and now he's an All-star, which means he makes plays every week.

Also Quandeski Whitlow is also on the Alabama All-star team.

Undersized+no offer from Bama or Auburn= Low rating
