"I am going to be playing safety in this game and cornerback," Henry said. "I get to roam the field a little more and make some plays."
The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder committed to Wisconsin on Dec. 6 and is all set to head to Madison.
"It's as firm as ever," he said. "I love the coaching staff and I feel like it's the best place for me athletically, socially and academically."
Henry also visited Iowa and South Carolina and held offers from the Hawkeyes and Gamecocks in addition to South Florida, Wake Forest, Nebraska, Pittsburgh and Ole Miss.
He has enjoyed his experience in Lakeland this week.
"The experience here has been tremendous," Henry said. "I am playing with a whole bunch of athletes. I'm just trying to go out there and do what my coach always told me to do, which is play my butt off every play."
Henry is a mid (5.6) three-star rated prospect and is the No. 36 cornerback prospect nationally according to Rivals.com.
