After an official visit to Oklahoma, Henry decided to stick with his original commitment to West Virginia.
When three-star, 89-rated prospect D'Vante Henry committed to West Virginia last month, Mountaineer fans were elated. When he received an offer from Oklahoma and planned an official visit to the powerhouse program located less than 15 minutes from his Southmoore (OK) home, they were equally worried.
Today, however, the 6-foot-6, 210-pound prospect passed along a message to EerSports that sent Mountaineer nation into a frenzy - the good kind - again.
"Dub V it is," said Henry, indicating he was sticking with his original commitment to West Virginia.
When asked why he was passing on an opportunity to play for the hometown Sooners, the No. 3 ranked junior college outside linebacker said the school's proximity may have actually been a deterrent.
"Being home was cool," he said. "But playing ball at home isn't for me."
With his recruitment seemingly done - again - Henry is set for an in-home visit from the West Virginia coaching staff this week before he returns to Arizona Western (AZ) for the spring semester.
