    TooCool Alabama RB recruit Derrick Henry now All-Time High School Rushing Champion

    HIGH SCHOOL'S ALL-TIME RUSHING CHAMPION

    Alabama has had quite the stable of star running backs over the past five years. Mark Ingram won the Heisman. Trent Richardson led the Tide to a national title. T.J. Yeldon emerged as an instant-impact star in his first season in Tuscaloosa. Yet none of them was as prodigious in high school as Derrick Henry, Alabama's next high-profile running back recruit. Henry, a 6-foot-3, 238-pound wrecking ball from Yulee, Fla., rushed for 12,124 career yards to smash Ken Hall's 59-year-old national record (11,232). In his senior season Henry rushed for a state-record 4,260 yards, breaking Travis Henry's mark, and he scored 55 touchdowns.

    And was i dreaming, or did i hear that we're bringing the kid in to play LB or something like that? I'm sure Nick will put him in the best position for him to be successful in the NFL - as he does so well.

    He's putting up video game numbers. Incredible. Alabama just keeps bringing in phenomenal RB's every year and I feel a little spoiled at this point.

    Most seem to think he's playing LB when he comes to campus, but this kid is one mean fast big kid! He's gonna tote the rock!

    I think he'd be a perfect fit for the new role that it seemed Jalston Fowler was/is playing. FB/HB/RB all rolled up in one. That hybrid position could become so dangerous, and I think the coaches would like to make it a staple in the offense. I just wish we could've seen it vs some more of the tougher competiition (It sure was impressive vs Michigan). If so, he'd fit that role perfectly.

    I've heard & read about the "Henry = LB' talk, but I just don't see it. He apparently has the skills to play RB, and I hope he'll get his chance to strut his stuff. I think he'll be a good one.

    He's playing RB, plain and simple. It would be crazy for him to play anywhere else.

    Can we just stop the DH linebacker talk?

    I know Henry wasn't playing against great competition. Who knows how he'll compare with our other running backs. I would bet, at minimum, he'll be a H-back. He might bring a new dimension to the H-back we haven't seen before. He is as big as Fowler with better ball skills and athletic ability. I almost see a Kevin Turner type player.

    He's got the potential to be a nightmare for defenses everywhere! That kind of size/speed/strength combination just isn't natural...

    I see a Mark Ingram, Trent, Eddie kind of player. I guess the H-back, FB, LB, TE talk will continue until he breaks off a 70 yard run in his freshman year but it probably won't stop then
