Henrich, from Omaha, Neb., is not only being recruited by Nebraska, but by Iowa as well.
In fact, Henrich currently has 19 scholarship offers, according to 247Sports. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound linebacker is rated by the site as a 4-star recruit. He also ranks as the No. 10 inside linebacker in the Class of 2019 and the No. 308 player overall.
Henrich is being pursued by a number of Big Ten schools and on April 13, he visited Wisconsin. On April 12, he visited Minnesota.
Currently, 247Sports has Nebraska’s 2019 class ranked No. 35 in the country and Iowa’s as No. 23. If Henrich were to give his verbal commitment, he would be Iowa’s third-highest rated recruit and Nebraska’s highest recruit.
Iowa has two four-stars already committed, while Nebraska has none.
The 2019 U.S. Army All-American Bowl is scheduled to take place at 1 p.m. ET on Jan. 5, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas. The game will be televised on NBC.
