South's No. 5 DE K.J. Henry impressed by Georgia

Four-star Clemmons (N.C.) West Forsyth defensive end K.J. Henry was in Athens last weekend and spoke with Scout following his visit.

K.J. Henry went to Georgia's junior day this past weekend.

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Henry enjoyed his time in Athens.

"The visit was great," Henry said.  "We toured the facilities and academic center. I also got to interact with some of the players and we went to the basketball game against Kentucky. Everything is top-notch -- from the campus to the people -- it's great."


While on campus, he spent the most time with outside linebackers coach Kevin Sherrer.

"He's a nice guy and a great coach, so spending time with him was great," Henry said. "I know a lot about Georgia already, so he didn't have to tell me much.

"I like how he keeps it real, though. He's honest and just gives me the facts. As far as playing early, he said that's up to me. He said that depends how I produce in college and that goes for wherever I decide to go."

Henry also spoke with head coach Kirby Smart one-on-one.

"I like him and like how he's honest," Henry said. "That was my favorite part of the trip. It's easy to talk to him. He motivates me athletically and academically."

In regards to upcoming visits, Henry doesn't have anything scheduled.
