Harmony’s Conner Henson Commits to ULM
It's been an eventful week thus far in the way of recruiting in East Texas, and that continued Wednesday with yet another college commitment.
Harmony senior offensive lineman Conner Henson announced on Twitter his decision to pledge to Louisiana-Monroe, becoming the second local recruit of the the day to offer up a commitment and the fourth since Monday.
Whitehouse defensive end Trevor Lawrence committed to Texas State earlier Wednesday, while Pleasant Grove LB Xavier Benson (Texas Tech) and Center WR JaTerious Evans (SFA) made their decisions Monday and Tuesday, respectively.
Henson (6-3, 243) chose ULM over other offers from Louisiana-Lafayette, Abilene Christian, Central Arkansas, Houston Baptist, and Stephen F. Austin.
He is the 19th recruit in East Texas' 2018 recruiting class to commit to an FBS program.
Henson 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 in 2016.
Harmony tied for first place in District 8-3A Division II.
ULM went 4-8 last season under first-year coach Matt Viator. It was a two-win improvement compared to the 2015 year.
The Warhawks gained signatures from Gladewater safety Austin Hawley and Longview safety Traveion Webster in the past recruiting cycle.
Henson, like all Division I prospects currently entering their senior year of high school, will first become eligible to sign with any program that offers him in December.
