Recently offered 2022 three-star athlete Tyrell Henry talks about his future plans and potential fit with Michigan State football.

On April 16, Tyrell Henry received an offer to play at Michigan State. He is an electric playmaker who can impact the game on offense, defense and even as a return man on special teams.

Henry is ranked the 18th-best player in Michigan for 2022, according to the 247Sports composite, which makes him a three-star prospect.

The Michigan State coaching staff has made the Roseville, Mich., product a priority for the 2022 class. When asked about who he was in contact with from Michigan State, Henry had a compelling response.

“The whole staff! A lot with coach (Mel) Tucker and (Courtney) Hawkins.”

The whole coaching staff is in pursuit for Henry, as they envision him as a wide receiver at Michigan State.

Getting Henry to commit to the Spartans will not be easy. He also holds scholarship offers from Michigan, Penn State, Nebraska, West Virginia, Pitt, Arkansas, Kentucky and a handful more. Even with all these offers, Henry isn’t quite ready to narrow things down.

“Well I’m not sure my top list just yet, but Michigan state is in there,” Henry said.

With Henry’s junior season coming to an end, it is around the time where prospects look to start finding a school. A decision is coming soon for Henry, but not too soon.

“The earliest (I would commit) is Jan. 31 and no later than March 28.”

On the field, Henry is a two-way athlete who makes plays. he describes himself as:

“Man, I would say a fast playmaker that can do everything. Someone that never gets tired and is always playing full speed.”

The film doesn’t tell any lies. Henry brings a ton of electricity to an offense. If Michigan State were to add him, Henry would compliment well with speedsters like Jalen Nailor, Jayden Reed and Jordon Simmons.

The win over Michigan last week was big for Mel Tucker and for recruiting. Henry took notice and has been watching Michigan State this fall with a close eye.

“They have played hard and look to be getting better and not looking back,” Henry said. “It should be a fun to watch throughout the rest of the season.”

There is a couple of things Henry is looking for in a school.

“Family feel, I wanna go somewhere I can play soon as possible and make an impact and be around people that wants me to succeed,” he said.

Michigan State currently doesn’t have any class of 2022 prospects committed. The next few  months that could change, so stay tuned.
