Once again the state of New Jersey is loaded and one of the top prospects is Dwayne Hendricks from Millville. Hendricks, 6-3.5 and 251 pounds, is a defensive lineman that could play tackle, end or both position at the next level. Last season as a junior, he recorded 65 tackles, 15 tackles for a loss, and 3 sacks mostly against run oriented teams.
"I move so well laterally," Hendricks said. "I have speed, quickness, and I shed blockers and get to the ball. I think I rush the passer real well. My sack total doesn't reflect that but we mainly play wing "T" type teams."
According to Hendricks, he has 27 scholarship offers at the moment from Miami, Florida, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Notre Dame, Michigan, Iowa, Georgia Tech, Penn State and others. That's quite an impressive list.
"I am completely open right now. I like Miami, Florida, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Notre Dame, Michigan, Iowa, Georgia Tech, Boston College, Rutgers and all the others. The main thing I am looking for is the coaching staff, particularly my position coach. I am also looking for tradition and stability. Most of these schools are recruiting me as a defensive end and that is the position I prefer."
This weekend, Hendricks will take an unofficial visit to both North Carolina and North Carolina State. They have both offered him a scholarship as well. This summer, he camped at Notre Dame and Georgia Tech. His brother, Damien Hendricks, plays offensive tackle for Temple.
