Winner. Winner. Chicken dinner. The Oklahoma State Cowboys got another Houston-area commitment Wednesday night and a home-cooked meal.
"Rajon just verbally committed to the coaches at dinner tonight," Galveston (Texas) Ball defensive tackle Rajon Henley's mother Liz Kennedy said.
"We are all so excited. He's been so hesitant. I just think he's nervous to leave his mother."
Kennedy's sister prepared a chicken dinner for Cowboy assistant Joe DeForest, who has been recruiting Henley since the spring.
The 6-3, 250-pound Galveston Ball product visited Utah and Texas Tech and was offered by the likes of Oklahoma, TCU, Iowa State, Ole Miss and Nebraska, among others.
Henley is the No. 33 ranked defensive tackle by Rivals.com and is No. 48 on Rivals.com's Texas Top 100. Henley suffered an elbow injury during his senior season, which caused him to miss four games.
He is projected to play interior defensive line for the Cowboys.
