Derrick Henry may not be a member of the Alabama Crimson Tide, but he was still able to check out their 52-6 thrashing of USC.
The former Heisman Trophy winner also got to see Alabama freshman Jalen Hurts take his first snaps at quarterback. And according to Jim Wyatt of the Titans Online, Henry liked what he saw.

Henry, like Hurts, wore No. 2 at Alabama. Hurts completed 6 of his 11 passes for 118 yards and two touchdowns. Hurts did throw an interception and he did fumble the ball on his first snap. But like Henry, many noticed the poise that Hurts possessed. Justin King of Al.com got video of Hurts’ eyes while on the field. It’s a pretty cool watch.
Look at Jalen Hurts' eyes as he scans the field. Cool, calm, collected on the biggest of stages. That's a freshman. pic.twitter.com/SfDidlMZg4
