While Georgia's cupboards aren't necessarily bare at tight end with both Arthur Lynch and Jay Rome (RFr) looking to make their respective contributions next season, The Bulldogs aren't resting on their laurels where planning for the future is concerned.

Hunter Henry is a name worth sticking in your memory bank because it's quite possible that he'll be playing at an SEC school in the near future—and Georgia hopes he chooses the red and black as his destination.

Henry has indicated that he is currently wide open to all the schools that have offered him and his criteria is less about distance or playing time than it is about education, offensive fit, and comfort level with the coaching staff.

He's also made it clear that his parents opinions will strongly influence his decision, his words exactly were it is very important to him that his parents "like the school". This point is worth taking note of as Henry's father, Mark, was an All Southwest Conference center for Arkansas in 1991 and Arkansas is listed as Henry's first official offer (former Auburn offensive coordinator, Gus Malzahn offered Henry as a sophomore, but Malzahn has since moved on to become a head coach at Arkansas State).

So, what would Henry bring to the table if he were to choose Georgia? Great body control, excellent route-running skills, and good hands. And while he's not likely to be the fastest guy on the field (he runs about a 4.8 40), he has good vision and can be elusive in the open field. His ability to look the ball in and use his body to create space off the line likely owes some credit to his other sport of choice—basketball.

Henry plays forward for the Pulaski Bruins.

Don't worry, though, he's not looking to extend his hoop dream into the college ranks, he feels that football is where his best days lie and he's committed to developing into the best he can be at his position.

Here's a little film on Henry from his junior season at Pulaski Academy.
