Dravon Henry to West Virginia: Mountaineers Land 4-Star DB Prospect

Alex Kay@AlexPKayCorrespondent IDecember 9, 2013


Dravon Henry, a rising star in the Class of 2014, has made a decision on where he will attend college and play football next year.

Chris Peak of Rivals.com provides Henry's school of choice:   

Prior to the announcement, Peak provided an image from Henry's press conference:

Head coach Dana Holgorsen was fortunate to grab this immensely talented athlete to bolster his secondary. Henry was believed to be considering Pittsburgh, Miami (Fla.) and more prestigious schools before deciding to take his talents to West Virginia.     

According to 247Sports’ composite rankings, this young talent grades out as a 4-star athlete and was the No. 1 recruit in the state of Pennsylvania. He ranked No. 111 overall in his class and makes a fine addition to the Mountaineers' recruiting class.

Henry played both safety and cornerback during his time at Aliquippa High School, excelling at both defensive back positions. At 5’11”, 185 pounds, he certainly has the size to line up at either position at the next level.

He’s a natural ball hawk that can reach up and steal it away from receivers at the highest point, all while possessing the speed, agility and fluid movement to remain stride for stride with his man.

He is also capable of playing some running back, as he lined up in the backfield in high school and made a serious impact. However, his smaller frame, ball-tracking skills and athleticism make cornerback or safety a more suitable position for him at the collegiate level.

It’s currently unknown where Holgorsen plans to use him, but there is no question we will be seeing a lot of Henry in the near future. This kid is simply a star in the making and should have a big impact on the Mountaineers once he gets on the field.

Don’t be surprised to see Henry shining under the bright lights at Milan Puskar Stadium soon, as his future is very bright.
