Scouts: TE Henry's a key get for Hogs
By Craig Haubert
Arkansas continues to enjoy some success with their in-state recruiting. With a commitment from ESPN 150 tight end Hunter Henry (Little Rock, Ark./Pulaski), the Razorbacks top three verbals all hail from Arkansas.
The four-star is an active part of his high school’s passing attack and can be a productive receiving tight end for the Razorbacks, who have shown in the past that they will throw to their tight ends. Henry possesses very good hands. There may be some slightly better pure athletes among the top TE prospects in this class, but Henry has good straight line speed and is a good and crafty route-runner and displays a feel to get open.
The pickup of Henry, one of the nation’s top tight end prospects, was a big one for Arkansas as they kept a good prospect at home and along with commitments from two top-30 quarterback prospects and another good tight end who is a nice fit in Deondre Skinner (Patterson, La.), the Razorbacks are bringing in some talented prospects at two key offensive positions where they have starters heading into their senior seasons.
