Recruiting Update with Three-Star RB Ta'Zhawn Henry

Scout caught up with electric play maker Ta'Zhawn Henry for a spring recruiting update.

Ta'Zhawn Henry, a 5-foot-7, 166-pound running back from Houston (Texas) Lamar is a one of the state's most serious offensive threats. He can score from anywhere on the field. 


Henry released his Top 12 list consisting of Baylor, Colorado, Houston, Iowa State, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, Utah (offers) and Clemson, Illinois, Texas, Texas A&M and Washington (no offers).  He continues to pick up interest and offers. 

"I am at like 20," Henry answered when asked about his offer list. 

So far this spring, Henry and his Lamar teammates have been the center of attention for media and college programs stopping in. 

"It's been going good," Henry said. "We are trying to get bigger, stronger, and faster.

I talked to Texas TechArizona -- Texas, they are coming to see me. I am getting Texas Tech and Arizona probably next week."

Henry's most recent visits were to UT and Texas A&M

"I went to Texas and I went to Texas A&M," Henry reported. "Texas felt like home. We love the environment. I like A&M, but I wasn't feeling it there."

Henry is a versatile offensive weapon who is getting looks to play as a slot-back on the next level. He can line up in the backfield or split out as a slot-receiver.

"You know, I like both positions," Henry pointed out. "I like catching and running the ball. Whatever helps my team win. They (colleges) like that I am an athlete, I am dynamic. They can get the ball too me in different ways."

Henry had a monster junior season. He racked up over 1,600 yards and scored 19 touchdowns for an 11-2 team. He was named 18-6A District MVP, but he wants to top that as a senior. 

"20 plus touchdowns," Henry said setting the bar for a monster 2017 year. "A state championship win, I want to be great."
