Central High safety Kevin Henry has decommitted from LSU and committed to Oklahoma State, he confirmed Tuesday.
“Yes it is Oklahoma State,” Henry said. “It’s nothing against LSU. I just feel like Oklahoma State is a better fit for me based on what they do.”
Oklahoma State’s 247 sports website first reported the news.
As of Tuesday afternoon, Henry had not yet spoken with the coaching staff at LSU. The 6-foot-2 Henry committed to the Tigers during his junior season but also has a number of offers from other schools, including Oklahoma State.
Central coach Edwards said Oklahoma State has remained in contact with Henry and had an assistant coach in attendance at the Wildcats’ game last Friday night in New Orleans.
“I just feel like he needs to talk to LSU first, before doing or saying anything,” Edwards said earlier Tuesday. “He’s attempted to contact LSU the last couple of days. Today we’ve called LSU, requesting a call back. Hopefully, we can get this resolved today.”
Edwards said offensive coordinator Cam Cameron handled much of Henry’s recruitment and that Central is attempting to contact Cameron, recruiting coordinator Frank Wilson and LSU head coach Les Miles.
A post on the website bayoubengalsinsider.com early Tuesday did include a quote from Henry confirming his commitment change from LSU to Oklahoma State.
Henry is listed as the nation’s No. 24 safety prospect by 247. He also has other notable scholarship offers from Ole Miss, Auburn, Miami and Texas A&M.
