Westlake (Calif.) four-star quarterback Malik Henry is considered one of the top signal callers in 2016 class.

Henry already holds notable offers from USC, UCLA and Notre Dame. And just recently, Michigan offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier made his way out to Golden State to see him throw.

"I really didn't know coach (Nussmeier) was coming," Henry said. "I talked to him a little bit after I threw. He just said, he liked what he saw. And that I'll be hearing from them pretty soon."

The brief conversation with Nussmerier was positive, according to Henry, but no offer was made. But if the Wolverines were to offer, he admits he would highly consider the Maize & Blue.

"I'm open to going anywhere," Henry said. "It would mean a lot to me if Michigan were to send an offer my way. I would really appreciate it to get an offer. They would definitely be in my top-five.

"I know they have a great program, they've had one for many years. They have great fan base. They have an amazing campus. A huge stadium. And they are great academic school."

Henry, who is planning a trip to Detroit in June, says he will make campus visits to Michigan, Michigan State and Notre Dame.

"I am mainly looking at how I get along with the coaches," Henry said on his campus visits. "If I like the campus or not. I am looking at the environment, the atmosphere. But mainly if I get along with the coaches and how they approach me with everything in building our relationship with each other."

Henry, who also stars on the baseball diamond, said he hasn't decided if he wants to graduate early or not for his senior year. So his commitment timeline is based on whether he wants to play baseball, or, if he decides to graduate early and not play baseball.

Regardless, at 6-foot-2, 180-pounds, Henry says he bring the necessary attributes to the quarterback position.

"I think I can lead a team, " Henry said. "I would see myself as a pocket passer who can run. And I can get the job done. And I think I could fit in Michigan's offense."
