Written by Stephen J. Nesbitt on .

West Virginia landed the commitment today of Dravon Henry, a consensus four-star defensive back from Aliquippa, Pa.

Henry (5-foot-11, 190 pounds) was selecting between West Virginia, Pitt and Miami. He projects as a cornerback for the Mountaineers. 

He also had offers from Louisville, Maryland, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Indiana, Kent State, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue, Rutgers, Temple, Tennessee, Toledo, UCLA, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Washington and Wisconsin.

Rivals: No. 14 safety, No. 149 player nationally, No. 3 in Pennsylvania.

Scout: No. 11 cornerback; strengths: anticipation, closing speed, instincts; areas for improvement: backpedal quickness, jamming ability, size.

"Henry breaks on the ball well and has very good acceleration. He reads plays in front of him and has very good ball-tracking skills. He can turn his hips to run with a receiver and has a very good feel for the game. He also is comfortable coming up to the line of scrimmage in run support to make a tackle. His backpedal needs works and he needs to get stronger to be more effective against bigger receivers at the line of scrimmage."

ESPN: No. 17 athlete, No. 136 player in country, No. 13 in region, No. 1 in Pennsylvania. Grade: 83. Traits: versatility, ball skills, playmaker.
