After maintaining a relatively low profile since de-committing from UGA last month, 5-star RB Derrick Henry energized the Twitterverse on Monday by sending out the following tweet:
Alabama is my LEADER! #Tide
Glad I got that out of the way
Obviously, it was not encouraging news for UGA fans who are hoping that Henry might commit for a second time to the Bulldogs – like WR Tramel Terry did.
Some supporters are theorizing that UGA may be more attractive to Henry for immediate playing time now that Isaiah Crowell has been dismissed, and freshmen Keith Marshall and Todd Gurley are still unproven.
It still could happen, as Henry’s Twitter declaration was, by no means, a verbal commitment to Alabama. But it was strong words and interesting timing by Henry, who had initially said he was going to focus on his high school team the rest of the summer when he de-committed from UGA.
What are your thoughts? What do you think of UGA’s chances with Henry?
