2016 Westlake Village (Calif.) Westlake quarterback Malik Henry spoke with USC receivers coach Tee Martin on Friday. Martin suggested Henry stop by USC's first day of spring practices Tuesday.

So that's exactly what the four-star quarterback and his father did and they left with a USC scholarship offer.

"I just got to practice, went over to meet Coach [Steve Sarkisian] on the field, and then he offered right there.

"I said thank you. It's an honor to have an offer from USC."

The Trojans are Henry's fifth scholarship offer. He's already been offered by BYU, Arizona State, Colorado, and UCLA.

"It's always nice to have the option to stay at home," Henry said. "But I have no favorites at this time."

He also has no dream team since he's spent most of his youth playing another sport. "I was more into baseball growning up," he said.

Henry watched the entirety of USC's first practice under Sarkisian. He also met with Sarkisian after practice as well as quarterbacks coach Clay Helton.

"[Helton] drew up some plays and went over some offensive schemes," Henry explained.

"I love the offense, it's similar to what we run at Westlake. I really like the uptempo. [Watching practice] I could definitely see myself fitting in. It was a great trip. It's a beautiful campus, awesome football facility and locker room."

This was Henry's first unofficial visit to USC.

He took an unofficial to UCLA two weeks ago.
