Top Florida QB will visit UofL Junior Day

Rob Henry, one of the top quarterback prospects in the entire state of Florida this year, lists Louisville as one of his early favorites and plans to visit the Cardinals next month for Junior Day.

"Nobody has offered me just yet but I'm getting a lot of interest from different schools," Rob Henry said. "I plan on going to Auburn's Junior Day on March 8 and then Louisville on April 5. I'm also trying to get up to Illinois sometime. They want me to come April 19 but I don't think that'll work for me so I'm trying to schedule something else."

Henry, 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds, has a top five in mind.

"My top five is Illinois, Auburn, Louisville, South Carolina, and then Alabama," he said. "I took an unofficial visit to Alabama for their game against LSU last season and had a good time."

Henry said he grew up favoring Auburn and talked about that.

"I can't really say why," he said. "I just remember watching them when I was real young and really liking them. I saw them on TV one night and ever since I followed them. I really like Illinois, too. I've been there a few times and I really like the facilities and the coaches up there."

The talented quarterback, who transferred to Florida from Mississippi, came to Trinity just after John Brantley had finished his senior season. Henry had a strong senior season, throwing for over 1,000 yards and 10 scores and adding a lot of yardage on the ground.

"I think my athletic ability stands out," he said. "This past weekend I did a 41.4-inch vertical jump at a Combine I went to. I bring a lot of athletic ability to the quarterback position."

Henry, who ran track and played basketball as a freshman and sophomore, talked about some of the things he'll be looking for in a school.

"I'm looking for a place with a good family atmosphere," he said. "I'll need to be somewhere that I get along with the coaches really well. I'll look at my major -- engineering probably. And then I'll look at the number of players they put into the NFL since that's my dream."

Inside the classroom, Henry is in excellent shape. He carries a 3.9 GPA and scored a 26 on the ACT. He plans on re-taking that soon.

Henry plans on attending the Scout.com Combine on March 9 in Jacksonville.
