Sleeper DE getting looks

Corey Henry is a two-star defensive end prospect from Miami Carol City High and caught up with him to talk about the latest on the recruiting front.

Corey Henry's success may be somewhat of a surprise to some people around Dade County this season but it doesn't come to a surprise to us. That's because Henry was an All-Combine performer when the Armour Series Tour went to Miami back in March.

Henry, 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, is off to a very fast start for the Chiefs.

"I have eight sacks right now and I've caused five fumbles and I've scored a touchdown," he said. "I made (elite 2010 RB prospect) Jakhari Gore fumble when we played Columbus. I don't know where those rank in the county because not everyone turns their stats in but I think they gotta be up there. I told you before the season my goal was to get 20 sacks and I still plan on getting there."

The standout defensive end prospect has just one offer right now but has other schools calling.

"I just have that one offer from FIU," he said. "I've been getting some calls from a few other schools though. FAU has been calling, Arizona State, Kansas State, and a coach from Grambling called. I'm waiting till after the season to set up my visits."

So what are the other coaches telling Henry?

"They all wanna see my senior film before offering me," he said. "I think once they see it, they'll like me a lot."

Henry has been to two games so far this season and talked about them.

"I went to watch FIU when they played South Florida and that was good," he said. "It was a close game. I also went to watch UM play UCF last week. Miami never recruited me though. I think it's because they like guys from winning programs and we went 2-8 last year."

Henry, whose Chiefs are 3-2 now and have allowed just six points in their last three games, believes the test score he just received will help land him more offers as well.

"I have a 2.5 GPA so they kept saying I needed an 840 and that's what I just got on my last test," he said.
