RECRUITING: Iowa State in Ta’Zhawn Henry’s top three

Iowa State made the cut for Texas running back Ta’Zhawn Henry‘s top three college choices. The three-star ball-carrier released his list on Tuesday via his Twitter account.

He took his first unofficial visit to Iowa State earlier this month and will make a return trip to Ames in July before announcing his college decision on August 8.

Henry is rated as the No. 17 all-purpose back in the country by 247Composite. The 5-foot-8, 175-pound prospect is the No. 938 player in the country and No. 122 prospect in the state of Texas.

TCU and Texas A&M are the other two schools included in the top three. Henry has cut his list down from 23 FBS offers including Kansas State, Baylor, Colorado and Utah.

Iowa State currently has 12 commits in its 2018 class that is rated as the No. 47 class in the country. It is ranked as the No. 7 class in the Big 12.
