Canes drop in to see Ohio OL

Henry Conway is a three-star offensive line prospect from Shaker Heights, Ohio and he talked about how exciting it was to have Miami stop by his school recently. Read on to see what he's saying about that, his interest in the Canes, their interest in him, and more.

"Coach Stoutland from Miami stopped by my school recently and when he called me after that, I was like, 'wow!'," Henry Conway said. "I couldn't believe it was the offensive line coach from Miami of Florida. He was telling me how they need some offensive lineman and that they're interested in me and that they'd be keeping in touch with me."

That was last week. Conway was hoping to hear back from Stoutland and that phone call happened earlier this week.

"I actually talked to him on (Sunday)," he said. "He was talking to me and my dad. They haven't offered me yet but my coach just sent them my film from this year so hopefully they like what they see."

What will they see when watching Conway? He was asked that.

"They'll see a big guy who can move around pretty well," he said. "I played some on defense and I feel like I am a pretty good athlete for someone my size."

The talented big man talked more about his interest in the Hurricanes.

"I have family down south, in Georgia," he said. "My family is originally from Alabama. I'd have no problem going down that way for college. I've watched Miami since I was a kid. They're the only team I knew when I was that age. It would be real cool if I could play there."

The Hurricanes aren't the only school that's been calling the 6-6, 300-pounder. He talked about that.

"I've also been talking to coaches at Syracuse, Illinois, Cincinnati, and Akron," he said. "I don't have any offers yet. I'm hoping I pick some up after the season when the coaches start recruiting real hard again. I'd like to set up a few visits to check out some of the schools."

The talented big man helped lead his team to a 5-5 record this season, which just finished last week.

"It was our best season in the last few years so we're getting better," he said. "I was playing both ways but pretty much just goal line situations on defense. Now I'll be trying out for basketball and if I don't make the team, I'll be doing indoor track."

Inside the classroom, Conway claims he's a qualifier with a 890 SAT score.
