This is a discussion on New Commit: Travin Henry within the Georgia Tech Football forums, part of the Georgia Tech Sports Message Boards category; Travin Henry - Yahoo! Sports...
He wasn't highly sought after, but I like his film. I'm not sure why there wasn't more interest. He is a big physical kid who knows how to use his body and "high point" (sorry to use a Jesse Palmerism) the football. I'm not sure if he is a good route runner, but I saw all the receiving skills needed to thrive in our offense. He can get off the ground - that is for sure. In fact, his film reminds me a little of BayBay's. If he can learn to block, he can help us.
Edit: I see from this article that he prefers WR:

And yes, I like the fact we're making inroads into South Ga. I think this guy will be a solid player for us, ESP in the red zone
Looks like a big physical receiver -- an advantage Thomas had over Hill imo. Adel GA is out in the middle of nowhere below tifton, so that's probably why not many people made it down there. This is exactly the kind of WR we need in the offense. Good blocking on the perimeter (geez man...can you imagine a 170-200 lb DB getting blocked by this 230 lb WR?!) & can go up and get the ball. Looking forward to him contributing to the team.
