Take Me Home ‘19: West Virginia may have found their next Rasul Douglas in La’Darius Henry

This Gibbs HS product has the length to be a disruptive force.

Many kids play quarterback because they are the best athlete on the team at the time when they are younger. As the competition increases, those that stay develop certain skills and abilities to read defense. If those kids are moved away from quarterback later on, often its to receiver. For La’Darius Henry, his coaches moved him to free safety and the transition has paid off. In two years as a defensive back, Henry has totaled 97 tackles, four interceptions, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

Henry was once a South Florida Bulls commit early in 2018 but decommitted from the school near the end of March. Henry’s de-commitment was a wave of decommits as USF suffered through a weird phase where five players removed their allegiance to South Florida.
