Henry, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound pro-style quarterback, is ranked the No. 3 player at his position by 247 Sports' Composite Rankings. He's very, very talented. But he also might have a bit of an attitude and maturity problem. 

According to multiple reports, Henry's attitude and maturity might have played a role in his departure from IMG.

Henry has been committed to Florida State since November. It's unlikely his departure from IMG Academy will have an effect on his commitment to the Seminoles.
