Henry followed his father’s footsteps as his father, Mark was a tackle for the Razorbacks from 1987-1991. As a high school senior, Henry was the nation’s number one tight end and a Parade and Under Armour All-American and has since lived up to the billing. He was a freshman All-American and started all 12 games in 2013, and carried success into his sophomore campaign where he started 10 of 13 games and earned second team All-SEC honors (Coaches’ team). Henry’s 2015 campaign was his best, earning first team All-American honors as he was the John Mackey Award winner which recognizes the nation’s best tight end.
