Drafted in the 6th round (171st overall) by the Milwaukee Brewers in 2016 (signed for $550,600)
It's not often that Utah high school position players sign out of the draft rather than heading off to college, with Henry the most likely candidate to forgo college since Seattles's 2010 2nd round pick Marcus Littlewood. The Brigham Young commit is a physical catcher with above-average raw power and very good bat speed. There's a lot of swing-and-miss when he's at the plate and scouts question about how well he will handle better velocity than he's faced this spring. Henry has improved considerably behind the plate in the past year, becoming more agile and showing an average arm. He may go off the board in the first five rounds or could be a tougher sign due to his BYU commitment.
