Florida State’s offensive line problems are well-known.
Needed: A whole cadre of new bodies.
Acquired: One very large body.
Consensus three-star offensive lineman Ira Henry from Trinity Catholic in St. Louis, MO has signed his National Letter of Intent to enroll at Florida State University.
Florida State offered the 6’5 320-pound high-schooler on December 7. He visited campus on January 25 having entertained Coach Pimpleton for an in-home visit, and FSU beat out Auburn and Florida for his commitment to play football at the next level.
Henry is listed in numerous places as an offensive tackle— and certainly has the frame for the position. I think he projects as an interior lineman at the Power 5 level and contributor on-field later in his years of collegiate eligibility. He represents a upgrade in youth over more than a few players on FSU’s roster of offensive linemen.
Henry is the most recent Missouri high school recruit to sign with FSU since former FSU and current NFL offensive lineman Roderick Johnson (Hazelwood Central High School - Florissant, Missouri) did on NSD 2014.
