Abilene Christian Offers Harmony’s Conner Henson
Harmony junior offensive lineman Conner Henson has caught the attention of Division I college coaches this offseason following a stellar 2016 campaign.
And on Friday, Abilene Christian became the fourth D-I program to offer Henson a scholarship, he announced on Twitter.
Henson (6-4, 250) also holds FCS offers from Central Arkansas and Stephen F. Austin, in addition this lone FBS invitation from Louisiana-Lafayette.
The Harmony lineman was part of a unit that guided Harmony to a 9-3 final record and a trip to the area round of the Class 3A Division II state playoffs.
Harmony tied for first place in District 8-3A Division II.
Abilene Christian is a member of the Southland Conference, and has been since 2014, a year after participating as an FCS independent in its first year as a Division I participant.
The Wildcats are coached by Adam Dorrel, who was hired following the 2016 season, after guiding Division II power Northwest Missouri State to a 76-8 record in his six seasons as head coach. Dorrel guided the program to D-II national titles in 2013, 2015, and 2016.
Abilene Christian finished 2-9 (2-7 in SLC) last year, its worst season since joining the Division I ranks.
Henson, like all college football prospects currently in their junior year of high school, will become eligible to sign with any school that offers him in February of 2018.
