KJ Henry, the nation’s No. 2 weak-side DE for 2018, placed Georgia in his Final 5 on Monday.
Henry rates as the nation’s No. 14 overall prospect for this year’s cycle. The 6-foot-5, 234-pounder has taken several trips to UGA over the last year.
Keith Henry, his father, is the running backs coach at Charlotte. The college assistant coach was a member of Jim Grobe’s staff at Catawba (N.C) years ago. Grobe went on to coach at Wake Forest in the Atlanta Coast Conference, among other stops.
The Henry staff feels that Smart reminds them of a “young Jim Grobe” during their interactions on the recruiting trail. What does that mean?
Consider that to be a big compliment. The Henry family still holds Grobe in very high esteem.
Henry acknowledged that Clemson was likely the team to beat for his decision about a year ago, but that status has evolved over the last 10 months.
