Stephen F. Austin Offers Harmony’s Conner Henson
Conner Henson continued to pick up recruiting traction Tuesday with a new college football scholarship opportunity from Stephen F. Austin.
The junior Harmony offensive guard, who received interest from Louisiana-Lafayette last week, announced the Lumberjacks' offer through his personal Twitter account. He's the region's second 2018 offensive lineman prospect behind Marshall guard Chasen Hines.
Henson (6-4, 250) produced enough material in 2016 for an eight-minute highlight video on Hudl.com. He 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.
Henson might not be the only junior from the Harmony community with a college football future. Defensive back Konrad Eichelman currently has coaches from Dartmouth and Harvard tracking his offseason progress.
Stephen F. Austin enters the mix on the heels of 5-6 season. It went 4-5 in the Southland Conference, which advanced Central Arkansas and Sam Houston State to the FCS playoffs.
Clint Conque will begin his fourth season in Nacogdoches this fall with an overall record of 17-18 and one trip to the playoffs.
The Lumberjacks love early challenges against members of the FBS level of NCAA Division I football. They traveled to Texas Tech last season and Henson will get to evaluate the program in an opening game at SMU this year.
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.
