3-star RB Ta’Zhawn Henry names Texas in Top 12

Despite not holding an offer, the Houston Lamar product is high on the Longhorns.


Houston Lamar running back Ta’Zhawn Henry began trimming things down in his recruitment on Sunday by narrowing his current list to 12 schools and not surprisingly, the Texas Longhorns are among those still being considered

An unordered list, Henry also named Oklahoma State, Clemson, Texas A&M, Baylor, Houston, Iowa State, Utah, Oregon State, Colorado, Washington and Illinois as program’s he’ll be focusing on going forward, though that may change if other offers arise.

Kansas State, Boise State and Nevada are among those that have offered Henry that didn’t make the cut.

A three-star all purpose back, Henry rushed for 1,452 yards and 16 touchdowns on 182 carries last season while adding another 155 yards and three scores as a receiver on a loaded Lamar team that also features Texas priority targets in five-star cornerback Anthony Cook, four-star cornerback D’shawn Jamison and four-star wide receiver Al’vonte Woodard.

While Cook, Jamison and Woodard all currently hold Texas offers, Henry does not, but that’s likely going to change at some point in the near future. Once that offer comes, assuming it does, the ‘Horns will likely stand as the sole frontrunner in Henry’s recruitment considering he’s called Texas a dream school.

The Texas staff is staying in contact with Henry.

At 5’7, 157 pounds, Henry ranks as the nation’s No. 923 player, No. 14 all purpose back and the No. 122 player in Texas, per 247Sports Composite.
