Brad Henson has signed his letter of intent to play college football for the North Carolina Tar Heels.
Brad Henson chose to play for Larry Fedora at UNC over Virginia, Rutgers, Wisconsin Tennessee and South Carolina.
Henson originally committed to Virginia before flipping to North Carolina in December. Henson is rated as a three star guard, but his offer list is impressive with a number of schools who traditionally produce great linemen were interested in the Toms River New Jersey product. Offensive line depth is a need for UNC and they arguable lost the best interior linemen to ever play guard in Chapel Hill when Jonathan Cooper graduates this spring.
Henson is the first signee in the class. Henson is the third offensive linemen in the class joining RJ Prince and Luke Crawley. UNC has some talent in its returning offensive linemen, but injuries always factor in. Offensive linemen typically need a year in the program before they can contribute, and hopefully the Tar Heels can avoid playing these three before they are ready.
