Henry, a former top recruit, will reportedly be walking on.
Malik Henry, a former four-star prospect who began his career at Florida State, is walking on with the Wolf Pack and will join the team later this month, Nevada head coach Jay Norvell said on Tuesday’s episode of NSN Daily. Henry last played for Independence (Kan.) Community College where he was a featured player of Netflix’s “Last Chance U” documentary that told the story of a team of players looking for second chances.
Ranked the No. 17 prospect in the 2016 recruiting class by ESPN (and 34th by Scout and 49th by 247Sports), Henry opted for Florida State over offers from Notre Dame, USC, Tennessee, Texas, UCLA, Wisconsin and Arizona State, among others. At Florida State, he was briefly suspended in August 2016 for an unspecified violation of team rules and never appeared in a game for the Seminoles before transferring in December 2016.
Henry was ranked the No. 4 pro-style QB in the country coming out of high school.
