Derrick Henry Explains Why He Picked Alabama Over Florida
Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports
Prior to tonight's Heisman Trophy ceremony that has Alabama RB Derrick Henry being the favorite, he talked about why he chose Alabama over staying home and going to Florida...

“Winning,” he said. “Winning championships.”

“Coach Saban holds us at a high standard and the older guys did a great job of setting a standard and we just have to follow behind it,” Henry said. “The more you’re at Alabama, you grow as a person and as a player learning from great coaches and great men and just growing with your teammates.”

Muschamp recruited him as a defensive player. The SEC's all-time leading rusher who grew up a Gator fan in Jacksonville was recruited to play defense by Will Muschamp. So, he never considered going to Florida after that.

Maybe, it could have been the fact that Alabama was the only one that would admit him.

The peninsula state below Georgia was never in it. Henry was committed to UGA until the check cleared from bama
