Late on Thursday evening, Florida State offered Saint Louis (Mo.) Trinity Catholic three-star offensive tackle Ira Henry.
The Seminoles join a lengthy list of more than two-dozen offers for Henry, but he described it, via his Twitter account, as a ‘dream offer’.

His tweet also included images of former FSU and current NFL offensive lineman Roderick Johnson, who attended Hazelwood Central High School in Florissant, Missouri.
FSU assistant director of player personnel John Herron played a role in the offer being extended. FSU wide receivers coach David Kelly has been the primary recruiter for Missouri prospects, specifically some others at Trinity Catholic.
The 6-foot-5, 320-pound offensive lineman shared a list of 10 schools back in June, but it is believed that the list has morphed some in recent months as interest and needs have changed for schools. Some that are clearly in the picture include Florida, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa State, Missouri, Oklahoma and Ole Miss.
The February signee has already taken an official visit to Iowa State. He is working on dates with Florida and Oklahoma for January. Other visits are certainly a possibility with two officials remaining after dates are set with the Gators and the Sooners. FSU is working on scheduling a visit with him as well.
Illinois holds a slight lead over Missouri on the 247Sports.com Crystal Ball for his services.
The 247Sports.com Composite Rankings consider Henry the No. 74 offensive tackle in the nation.
