Will UGA land the commitment of 5-star RB Derrick Henry again?
The Bulldogs are listed as one of the three finalists for Henry, along with Alabama and Tennessee.
Henry will finally make his highly-anticipated decision at 3 p.m. Friday at Florida’s Yulee High School, unless he changes the date again.
You know the story on Derrick Henry: He committed to UGA two summers ago, and remained pledged to the Bulldogs for nearly a year, before opening up things in June.
Could UGA land Henry again? After all, another UGA commit for 2013, WR Tramel Terry, committed, de-committed, and recommitted to UGA. But it seems far less likely with Henry, especially since he hasn’t visited UGA since the summer.
Who will get Henry? Alabama was almost everybody’s pick but now Tennessee appears to be making a strong push. Henry visited Tennessee last week.
Yulee coach Bobby Ramsay also shot down the notion that Henry – who is 6-foot-3 and 243 pounds – will play anything but running back in college, according to the Florida Times-Union:
“I think Derrick’s always looked ahead and never looked back and rested on what he’s done,” Ramsay said. “When people say that he’s not a college running back, I think he focuses on his naysayers. He’s always got something to prove.
“I think kids like Derrick and [Tim] Tebow are always going to come along, Cameron Newton, too, Magic Johnson, a 6-9 point guard, there’s always a somatotype for a position, a certain height, a certain weight. Guys come along outside the box of that position and play it well. It’s up to the coaches to fit those guys in.”
