Four-star, 6-foot-3, 242-pound running back Derrick Henry of Yulee, Fla., has verbally committed to play for Alabama next season. He's the state of Florida's second all-time leading rusher behind only Florida running back commit Kelvin Taylor (Belle Glades, Fla./Glades Day), has amassed an astounding 9,255 rushing yards in his prolific career.
"I love the program, I love the coaches," Henry said. "I love coach (Nick) Saban and the rest of the coaches and the other players. I just feel like I have a chance to be very successful at that program on the field and off the field. They have been superior at my position and superior in the SEC over the last three or four years. It's looking good at Alabama, and I'm just ready to get down there and get to work."
