Henry had been committed to Tennessee since late May.
Linebacker remains a priority position for the Seminoles between now and National Signing Day in early February. The Seminoles signed three linebackers during the Early Signing Period, but would like to add one to two more over the final month of the process.
FSU offered Henry during an unofficial visit in mid-January. The South Georgia native made that unofficial visit with his mother and grandmother.
He is expected to return in January for an official visit, likely the weekend of Jan. 25th. That date is not yet locked in at last check with Henry.
FSU linebackers coach Raymond Woodie is the primary recruiter for Henry.
Arkansas and Ole Miss are other contenders for Henry. Others likely emerge in January leading up to the first Wednesday in February.
The Razorbacks currently hold the lead on the 247Sports.com Crystal Ball.
Henry is considered the No. 3 junior college prospect in the nation and No. 1 inside linebacker from the junior college ranks per the 247Sports.com Composite Rankings.
