Last chance up? Malik Henry leaves Mountain West school
Once upon a time, Malik Henry was expected to be Jimbo Fisher’s next great quarterback. Four years after enrolling at Florida State, Henry has left his another program.
A Nevada spokesperson recently confirmed to Nevada Sports Net that Henry is not enrolled at the school for the spring semester and is no longer a member of the Wolf Pack football team. Henry joined the program in January 2019 as a walk-on after leaving Independence Community College in Kansas where he was a featured player on the popular Netflix documentary “Last Chance U.”
In the class of 2016, Henry was the No. 4 pro-style quarterback and No. 49 recruit overall. He committed to FSU on Nov. 13, 2014 and was projected to be the next FSU star quarterback a la Jameis Winston. Henry announced he would be transferring from the Seminole program on Dec. 13, 2016 after not appearing in any games that season.
Henry had an up-and-down time in the JUCO ranks at Independence before returning to the FBS at Nevada. With the Wolf Pack, Henry did not win the starting job in fall camp, but was given the nod to start in early October. Roughly two weeks later, he was removed from the roster. Now, he’s no longer enrolled.
One has to wonder if the former top-50 recruit is out of chances to play college football.
