WVU Football Recruiting

Highly Coveted 2026 WR Chris Henry Jr. Commits to Ohio State



Chris Henry Jr.

Chris Henry Jr. won’t be following in his late father’s footsteps at WVU, but has announced his commitment. On Friday, Henry told reporters that he will take his talents to Ohio State.

Henry (6-foot-4, 190 pounds) decided to break the news while visiting Columbus. This doesn’t come as too much of a surprise since this keeps Henry in his home state of Ohio and at a major brand program.

Henry, a wide receiver prospect in the 2026 class, attends Withrow High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, growing up in the city of the Bengals, the only NFL team his late father played for.

In addition to having Mountaineer blood by birth, Henry has also been mentored by another WVU football legend. Adam “Pacman” Jones, who played with Sr., both in college and the NFL, took Jr. and his siblings in and helped raise them after their father’s tragic passing at only 26-years-old. Henry visited Morgantown with Jones during West Virginia spring ball.

Even though he might have an emotional connection to WVU, Henry could not resist the temptation to join Ohio State after weighing options from big time schools all over the country.

Henryreceived offers from 20 other programs like Cincinnati, Michigan, Michigan State, Miami, Tennessee, USC, Notre Dame, Penn State and Pitt, just to name a few.
