Size Not All That Henry Possesses

Even if he ran a below average forty time, Dayvyon Henry would still get looks from a large list of schools. The reason is because he stands at 6'4" and weighs 180 lbs. Not many defensive backs are gifted with that height at the college or professional levels.

Dayvyon Henry doesn't want people to label him because of his stature alone however.

"I want to show people I'm more aggressive than advertised.  I get noticed because I am a big DB but I can hit too."

Henry listed five schools that are at the top of his list at this point in his recruitment, and he mentioned that KU is the lone written offer he has received in the mail thus far.

"It's going great.  A couple of colleges have really been on me.  Kansas is the only letter I've gotten but others are definitely involved."

At this time what schools are involved besides Kansas?

Oklahoma - "They play in the Big XII and they win championships.  They are always playing in big bowls."

Texas Tech - "I like the stadium and the school a lot."

LSU - "Speed defines their team.  I just love their defense."

Arkansas - "They are re-building the program and I would want to help them with that."

As for the Jayhawks, the biggest advantage they have in Henry's recruitment is Toben Opurum, the freshmen running back that played at the same high school as Dayvyon.

"T.O. is up in Lawrence.  I wouldn't be alone if I went to Kansas, and he would help me get off to a good start."

With his decision likely coming closer to National Signing Day, the defensive back from Plano East High School is focused on his senior year in the midst of recruitment.

Henry is looking for some things when he decides on a place to call his home, and he made that clear.

"I plan on going to a school that has great academics, as well as great athletics.  When I am done with football I either want to be a businessman or a coach.  I could see myself teaching players at the high school or college level."

Henry is a player that nobody wants to be matched up against, and he has a drive matched by few others.

"When I am on the field and the crowd is out yelling and screaming, I hate to lose.  I trash-talk but I back my talk up.  I work hard every day and I don't just love football; I breathe it."
