K.J. Henry is one of the most sought after recruits in the class of 2018 as he’s ranked as the top defensive end in the cycle by 247Sports’ own rankings. He has already said he is going to whittle down his list of schools to five this summer and will commit in December so that he can enroll early at whichever school he chooses.
Henry took a visit to Tuscaloosa with his mom and she came away quite impressed. Nicole Henry told BamaOnline everything she enjoyed about the visit and even gave reasons why she likes each coach.
“We love Alabama. Alabama is a love. Great staff. Coach (Nick) Saban has armed his staff with a lot of good heavy hitters. You know, Coach Tosh (Lupoi) is a favorite for KJ, and he has been since day one. Really just Alabama, the location, the school, the academics, he’s very impressed with everything. So they rank high on his chart.”
The 247Sports crystal ball has all eight of its predictions for Clemson right now though as the North Carolina native would not have to go far for school in that instance and has said he likes the Tigers as well. The almost 6’6″ and 235-pound end is ranked as the No. 6 overall recruit by 247Sports and the top recruit in North Carolina.
