Malik Henry has turned very diplomatic about his recruitment as the 2016 quarterback said his Midwest tour went great, the local schools are recruiting him equally and he doesn't have any clear favorites at this point.
The Westlake Village (Calif.) Westlake standout visited Ohio State, Michigan State, Notre Dame and Michigan in recent weeks and was impressed by all four programs.
"Everything went well," Henry said. "I loved every school. It was just fun, the whole experience getting to see the campuses and getting to talk to the players and the coaching staffs."
As for UCLA and USC, the 2016 recruit said "they're both recruiting me the same," but he does have some upcoming visits that could widen his scope of interest.
Henry, who finished with 2,362 passing yards with 21 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in his sophomore season, is planning late summer trips to Florida State, Tennessee and Texas A&M. It's still preliminary but the Westlake prospect is excited to see those three programs.
"I just want to go down there and check it out, see the schools and see how I like it," Henry said. "Kind of narrow it down and go further with making a decision."
Auburn, Florida and Georgia are showing new interest in Henry, who has already landed offers from Arizona State, BYU, Colorado, Florida State, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, UAB, UCLA, USC, Washington State and Wisconsin.
Henry is privately narrowing down his choices but wants to keep an open mind about every school.
"I have maybe a top five in my head right now but I'm still open to everybody," Henry said.
