CB - 6'0 170 - Blanche Ely (Pompano Beach, Fl)
Late addition to the class was a 2/3 3 star prospect who chose UM after NSD in part due to late SAT/ACT scores.
One thing we do know, is he can fly, as Henley also starred in track in H.S. (ran the 100M in 10.7 at Blanche Ely).
Joins a talented but no so deep CB group.
Late addition to 2015 signing class CB Terrance Henley will replace Antonio Crawford http://t.co/znHZqwdGPD

Athletic ability definitely appears to translate to the gridiron.
Chances He Redshirts (1-10) - 8
As part of this series we will evaluate if the given newcomer stands a chance to sit out his first season to retain eligibility.
On the one hand there isn't much depth on the roster behind Corn Elder, Ryan Mayes, Tracy Howard, and Artie Burns. On the other hand Sheldrick Redwine and Michael Jackson are fellow freshmen corners who appear more physically ready than Henley.
He has the speed to maybe be a gunner on ST, but there's a lot of competition on the roster for that spot as well.
Summary: Henley is another sleeper prospect the staff can stash away and develop. Hopefully they do not burn his RS for a cup of coffee and he can get to the weight room and add some bulk to match his speed. I like his ball skills, and of course his pure speed, but he has a way to go to develop as a tackler and physical presence in coverage. The kid definitely does look like a better prospect than his ratings though. I would still be shocked if he plays any or at all this coming season.
