Big 12 enters the mix for Henry

Credit teams like UTEP and New Mexico State for locating El Paso (Texas) J.M. Hanks rangy wide receiver Will Henry, but with a 6-foot-6, 195-pound frame, it was only a matter of time before other schools got involved.
Within the last few weeks, letters have started really coming in for Henry including Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech to go along with the two other schools on his list. His offer count still remains at one with a scholarship from New Mexico State, but the two-star sleeper is ready to add to the total.
"Well, it all started with a letter from Nebraska a week ago and then right after that I got something from Oklahoma," Henry said. "Both teams really started writing to me that they were interested. I'm not sure if they're serious yet or not, but I've noticed the letters were picking up fast."
"I've already been getting a lot from Texas A&M for a while too."
Though Henry has not talked to any of the Big 12 schools except Texas Tech, he feels confident that he can start to get a relationship going soon and find out if an offer may come.
UTEP looks to beat them to the offer.
"Coach (Mike) Price told me they're sending an offer, but they couldn't do it during this 7-on-7 tournament a while back," Henry said. "They said once the season gets going, they'll offer."
As for a favorite, Henry "is just looking for a Division I opportunity" anywhere and is keeping his options wide open. He was also going to set up his first official visit to New Mexico State, but his father has told him to wait.
"He wants me to wait until the end of the season," he said. "That way I'll have talked to more schools and I can find out where everybody stands."
