Interest Rising for Henyon

Still awaiting that first offer, Fort Worth (TX) Trinity Valley quarterback Austin Henyon feels confident it sits near.

After all, over the last few months, he has been receiving strong interest from programs like Auburn, TCU, Kansas State, Texas Tech, SMU, Oregon State, Tulsa, Memphis, North Texas, Florida International, Harvard, Princeton, and Yale.

His parents being TCU alumni, and the Horned Frogs being a childhood favorite, not to mention right in his backyard, Henyon admits the program holds a slight edge over the others.

As's Jeremy Clark reported yesterday, "Henyon says TCU is among his favorites and an offer from the Frogs would ease the recruiting process."

The 6'1, 190 gunslinger was on campus Thursday.

"I went to their practice and they invited me to come to another one after their spring break," he said. "It was awesome. They are building a new locker room that will be nice; All the facilities are second to none. Coach Burns and Coach Patterson were very warm with their welcomes and I spent a long time talking to each. I'm very excited to see them move to the Big 12 this season."

SMU and North Texas have been his only other visits this spring.

"UNT was great. I was impressed with Coach McCarney as well as the new facilities and the new outlook for the program."

"SMU had a good feel to it and the program is looking to do big things."

Next stop will be Tulsa's junior day April 7. Henyon also looks to make a Texas Tech camp this summer.

He noted, "I got invited to Auburn's junior day on March 24, but I can't go due to the Elite 11."

That's right, you can catch Henyon in action at the Elite 11 Quarterback Camp at Cowboys Stadium Saturday.
