    K.J. Henry - The 6-foot-5, 234-pound weak-side defensive end from Clemmons (N.C.) West Forsyth lived up to his lofty billing as the nation’s No. 15 prospect and No. 2 weak-side defensive end. He made his presence known lining up wide of the line, staying low off the snap, and blowing by offensive tackles with a nice shoulder lean and impressive quickness. He also effectively uses his length to finish plays quickly making the distance between he and the quarterback as short as possible.

    AND THEN THERE WERE FIVE

    With Ohio State holding as many as 18 commitments by week's end, numbers are becoming increasingly tight for the current recruiting cycle — particularly at defensive end. So it should come as no surprise, then, that Clemmons, North Carolina, West Forsyth five-star defensive end K.J. Henry did not include the Buckeyes in his Top 5 on Monday evening and instead listed Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, South Carolina and Virginia Tech.

    The 6-foot-6, 235-pound Henry — who is considered the second-best defensive end and No. 15 prospect overall in the Class of 2018, as he recorded 17 sacks and six blocked punts for the Titans last season — had been to Columbus twice in the last nine months. He attended November's double-overtime win over Michigan and then returned to campus the day prior to Friday Night Lights as he made his way to a 7-versus-7 tournament in Canton that weekend.

    Five-star defensive end Brenton Cox and four-star Andrew Chatfield have already pledged their services to the Buckeyes, who also remain among the favorites — if not the favorite — to land five-star Micah Parsons and four-stars Tyreke Smith and Jayson Oweh later in the cycle. And with that said, the staff really never went all-out for Henry.
