2025 Austin Vandegrift dual-sport athlete Jacob Henry (6'0, 275) announced his commitment to Oklahoma on Sunday. 

Henry is rated as a DCTF three-star prospect in football. He starred at OL and DL, earning first-team all-district honors in 2023. 

On the mat, Henry is 29-0 this season, earning the district's heavyweight championship and qualifying for regionals. 

Henry is the son of professional wrestling superstar and AEW commentator Mark Henry. Henry enjoyed a 25-year Hall of Fame career in WWE. He is a three-time U.S. National Weightlifting Champion and two-time Olympian.

"I am beyond proud of you Jacob," Mark Henry posted in response to Jacob's announcement on social media. "I know that nobody will work harder than you. Now you can add the University of Oklahoma fanbase as family. First honor God, then the Henry name, now the school that you represent. Hookem! and Go Boomer Sooner!"
