Malik Henry (Thousand Oaks, Calif. Westlake) released his final four schools, via his personal twitter account, he is considering as the No. 1 quarterback in the class of 2016 narrows the field of scholarship offers.

Making the cut for the 6-3, 180-pound pro-style quarterback are the Ohio State Buckeyes, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Florida State Seminoles and the UCLA Bruins.

Henry is the No. 1 pro-style quarterback in the 247Sports Composite Rankings and the No. 3 player overall regardless of position.

Florida State has the lead in the 247Sports Crystal Ball for Henry with 56 percent of the nine predictions, but could that see a shift considering the Seminoles have commitments from three freshmen for the class of 2015?

Kai Locksley, Deondre Francois and Deandre Johnson are all expected to enroll at Florida State next year, so that would create quite the loaded depth chart in Tallahassee.

No matter where Henry decides to attend college he will face competition already on the roster.

The in-state program has a commitment from five-star recruit Josh Rosen who is among the top pro-style passers in the 2015 class, Ohio State has a commitment from three-star recruit Joe Burrow and are in great shape to land five-star athlete/dual-threat quarterback Torrance Gibson this year.

Notre Dame, however, does not have any current quarterback commitments after seeing Blake Barnett decommit and later commit to Alabama and top target, Travis Waller, commit to Oregon over the Fighting Irish.

With Everett Golson, Malik Zaire and true freshman DeShone Kizer at Notre Dame, Henry may find that his easiest path to a starting job early in his college career would be at Notre Dame, but will Henry go with the easiest path to a starting job or the place he feels most comfortable?

He will visit Notre Dame on Sept. 6 for their game against Michigan.

Stay tuned as this could be the weekend he commits if his visit goes off swimmingly.
