Things started very slowly for El Paso (Texas) J.M. Hanks wide receiver Will Henry, but then again when you're a 6-foot-6, 195-pound prospect with very quality stats, things are going to change in your college options.
First it was New Mexico State that showed their interest by way of an offer, then the flood gates were opened as UTEP, Texas Tech, and Missouri all got involved. Then, this past week out of nowhere, another Big 12 team got involved with an offer and he set up a visit immediately.
"Coach Ted Gilmore called me from Nebraska and we got everything worked out for my offer and my official visit this weekend (Dec. 16) up there," Henry said about his second official visit. "They said they're filling up fast, but if everything goes right, they'll have a spot for me."
With his offer count now up to five, Henry is definitely a star in the making. Two other visits are set up to Missouri and Texas Tech.
"Missouri is in the Big 12 and I know they have an up-and-coming program," Henry said. "I know they have really nice facilities, so that will be a good place for years to come. Texas Tech just has a great coaching staff and they led the nation in passing. That's another good choice."
However, right now there is one team leading since his official visit he took on Dec. 2.
"Yeah I went out to UTEP and I really liked it," Henry said. "At first, I didn't want to stay in the El Paso area, but when I went out there, I saw just how great their offense was and meeting the coaches was great. I'd have to say them right now, but things could change."
