The Seminoles lost a player to running back Deonte Sheffield earlier this week after the veteran opted out of the squad. Now it looks like they’re gearing up to make a mid-season addition.

NoleGameday was informed Thursday by a Florida State spokesperson that wide receiver De’Mon Henry is expected to join the team as a replacement. He is currently going through the training / acclimatization period, which usually takes about a week, before being added to the roster on Seminoles.com.
The name may sound familiar to some fans. Henry created a little buzz during the offseason when he announced he would be heading to FSU and coming to earn a spot.
The Monsignor Pace High School product doesn’t have any stats listed on MaxPreps, but it does show the makings of a talented athlete on film. Henry does the majority of his work on fade roads, regularly getting rid of his man and creating open space. He has strong hands and feet that help him open up despite his 5-foot-9, 181-pound frame.

Henry listed Syracuse and CRF offerings on 247Sports. He chose to take the ‘Noles’ walk-in offer instead.
Joining the team four games in the season means Henry is already behind the eight ball, especially as a substitute. I wouldn’t expect him to contribute on the pitch this season, but he will have plenty of time to prove himself in the recruiting squad.
