Hunter Henry talks Tide and more

Hunter Henry, National 100 tight end from Little Rock-Pulaski Academy, Ark., is a top target for several schools. He is pushing close to 20 scholarship offers from across the country. He talked of a recent SEC Junior Day visit.

"I went to Alabama's Junior Day," said Hunter Henry. "That's the only Junior Day I have attended. I have been pretty busy with basketball. I am going to Arkansas on March 3rd. When I go on spring break we are going to take a trip one day to Miami."

Henry talked about his trip to Tuscaloosa and his interest in the Tide.

"The visit to Alabama was amazing," he said. "They are the national champs. The atmosphere, coaching staff and players are great. It's an amazing place. They are the No.1 team in the nation. They have a top class program. They are going to help you succeed not just in football, but in life after football.

"I talk to coach Groh often. He is my recruiting coordinator. I talked to the tight ends coach [Bobby Williams] and coach Saban while I was there. They said a lot of good things. They are trying to get me to be Crimson Tide.

The 6-foot-6, 235-pound prospect was offered by Alabama during his trip to Tuscaloosa. Several other programs have also offered scholarships.

"I have 16 or 17 offers," Henry said. "I got two offers today from Stanford and Georgia. It's amazing. Stanford is a top-tier program. Georgia top of the class in the SEC. They are two great programs.

Plenty of options and plenty of time to look at the different programs before making a decision.

"A lot of schools are coming at me hard," Henry said. "Mostly the southern schools and Big 12 schools. I really don't know when I will make a decision. Once I feel like I know the places I want to be I will narrow it down. I will make my decision at some time. I am playing open right now. I do not have any favorites."
