Morgantown, West Virginia – The late Chris Henry was an outstanding wide receiver for West Virginia from 2003-2004, finishing his career as the 8th leading receiver in school history with 1,878 yards. Henry went on to play for the Cincinnati Bengals before tragically passing away in 2009.
Former West Virginia star Adam “Pacman” Jones legally adopted Henry’s children after he died. Henry’s oldest son, Chris Henry, Jr., is now in the 8th grade, and last night, he received a scholarship offer to play for the West Virginia Mountaineers.
Henry, Jr., is already 6’3 and weighs 170 pounds, and holds offers from Marshall and Grambling State, but his offer from West Virginia was no doubt special for him because he now has the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of his late father and his adoptive father in Morgantown.
