He's a sophomore tailback at Yulee High near Jacksonville. And he currently has his eye on Florida State.
"Yeah, FSU is No. 1 for me right now," Henry said Saturday while roaming the sidelines before Florida State's game with Boston College at Doak Campbell Stadium. "Miami is No. 2, but I really like it here. I'm just a sophomore though, so I've got a while yet."
Henry is a huge running back at 6-foot-4, 220 pounds, but he runs like a gazelle in the open field. And when the field's not so open, he just runs over people. In the first three games this season, he ran for more than 300 yards in each of them.
Last year he gave a significant preview of things to come with 2,475 yards and 27 touchdowns on 313 carries to lead all freshmen in the state. This season he wants 3,000 yards, and he's not joking.
Following those first three games this season, Henry told Jacksonville's Florida Times Union, "I can get it (3,000 yards) because we've got a great offensive line with a lot of seniors, some sophomores. It's a blessing to have guys like that helping me gain all those yards."
And he hasn't stopped gaining them. Through six games now, Henry has 1,496 yards and 20 rushing touchdowns, according to the Times Union. With 29 yards next week against Jacksonville University Christian -- and former Florida commit A.C. Leonard, who decommitted this past week -- he will hit the 4,000-yard mark for his career.
Given the combined talents of Henry and his similarly talented teammate WR Kelvin Rainey, it's surprising the Hornets have lost a game, yet they sit 4-2. The fourth-year school's chances at finishing with its first playoff berth, however, seem to be pretty good. Jacksonville Bolles (7-0, 3-0 2B-3) should win the district title. Bolles handled Yulee quite easily Friday night 56-27 behind running back D.J. Stewart's 191-yard, six-touchdown performance.
"Kelvin's a junior and FSU's the top one for both of us," Henry said. "I went to the Miami-Florida State game down there, and obviously Florida State killed them, but that's my only visit right now, that one and this right here (FSU-Boston College)."
He said it would be nice if the two wound up playing together in college.
"That would be good but right now I'm a sophomore, so I got a few more years of playing," Henry said.
Rainey, 6-foot-3, 219 pounds, will likely be recruited as a linebacker or tight end. In one game this season he caused six fumbles, recovering three of them and is just a terror on opposing offenses.
Many figure Henry is going to grow out of his running back position given that he has two more years in high school after this one. Not his coach.
"I think (Henry) is a running back all the way. I think there is still a place for a bigger back in college football," Yulee coach Bobby Ramsay told Scout.com's Chad Simmons last week. "He is an Eddie George or Eric Dickerson type of back and he is a running back that can really excel in a pro-set system. He is big, powerful, fast, strong, and he can do it all, so why would anyone want to move him? I just think he plays running back in the right system and has success."
Rainey has six catches for 112 yards and a TD on offense, and he has 26 tackles and an interception as a linebacker. He also has two rushing touchdowns.
