Jalen Henry
Freshman
LB
5-10 / 207
Foley, AL

Recruitment
After a junior high school year which saw him miss almost the entire season with a foot injury, Henry wasn't heavily recruited, even though 247 lists him as the 30th ranked player in Alabama for his 2015 class. The three-star recruit's only other major offer came from Southern Miss.

College Career
As a true freshman, Henry has more experience than most other incoming freshman. After graduating from high school early last year, he enrolled in South Carolina in time to participate with the Gamecocks during spring drills, and that's about the extent of his collegiate career.

2015 Outlook
It's uncertain how much of an impact the true freshman will have this season, if any, but the coaches did give him some accolades during spring ball. Henry is currently listed as the third-string MIKE linebacker, so it appears he'll spend this season developing his technique and putting some bulk on his 207 pound frame.
