Malik Henry is one of the top 2016 quarterbacks in the West - if not the entire country - and his recruitment has taken off in a big way.
So far, the Westlake Village (Calif.) Westlake standout has been offered by Arizona State, BYU, Colorado, Nebraska, UAB, UCLA and USC and he said the Bruins stand out early on.
UCLA could be the slight frontrunner but Henry said this past weekend while watching the IMG 7on7 West Regional that USC is making a serious push and he's expected to visit the Trojans for their upcoming spring game.
"UCLA is probably recruiting me the hardest right now," Henry said. "They are standing out the most right now. It's between them and USC.
"I've been talking to coach (Clay) Helton a lot. I could go down this weekend and I'm going to the spring game. I'll see them down there. I'm going to sit in meetings with them and do some quarterback things with them."
Henry, who threw for 2,362 yards with 21 touchdowns in his sophomore season, said interest has dramatically picked up in recent weeks.
Notre Dame, Washington, Michigan State, Penn State and Florida State have all showed interest and many college coaches will be stopping by Westlake in the coming weeks.
There's no doubt more offers could be on the way once they see Henry in spring practice.
"They're all coming down in a couple weeks and we'll see what happens," Henry said. "They're going to come see me throw and we'll go from there.
"It's going to be pretty big. I still need to learn some stuff. I need to get the offense down. We need to put in some plays and go over my reads a little bit and get the line ready so we're all on the same page."
