Aliquippa (Pa.) high 2014 running back Dravon Henry was impressed with the Michigan coaching staff on a recent in-school visit. GBW caught up with the three-star prospect, as he talked about Hoke and what his visit meant to him, a possible Wolverine offer, what position he is getting recruited at, a decision timetable, and more.

Aliquippa (Pa.) high 2014 running back Dravon Henry had a recent in-school visit with Michigan coach Brady Hoke and was pleased with the message Wolverine headman left with his coach.

"They was just saying how they could be anywhere in America, but they came down here to see me. And they just said they'll keep in touch. They'll see me again and I should come up for their junior day," Henry told GoBlueWolverine.

What kind of impact did Hoke's presence make?

"They could've of went anywhere in America and they came to see me. That kind of touched me a little bit. I think he's a nice guy. He seems like a good person to be around, " he said.

At 6-foot, 185-pounds, Henry said UM has yet offer, but senses an offer could be on the horizon, and plans a visit for Michigan's upcoming junior day.

At running back, Henry starred last season with 1,439 yards and 24 touchdowns that helped ead Aliquippa to the WPIAL Class AA state championship. However, he says the Wolverines are recruiting him to play cornerback in Ann Arbor.

"Probably, because I am kind of a big dude," he explained. "I feel like I am more of a physical (defender). I can also run, so I think I'll be alright as a (cornerback). …I'll play wherever I fit in. But I prefer safety rather than corner."

A three-star prospect, Henry has offers from Ohio State, Pitt, West Virginia, Maryland, Cincinnati, Rutgers, and Toledo. Despite all the offers, he says he's in no hurry to trim down list down.

"I really can't come up with a top (list) quite yet," he explained. "Probably, when it gets closer to football or the middle of football season, I'll definitely have a top-five."

As far as a decision timetable, Henry says he want s to make all his official visits first before making his final college choice.

"I'm probably going to do it after our football season or somewhere near signing day. It will be somewhere around that area," he said.

In the meantime, Henry says he is focused on getting better on and off the field.

"I think I just have to keep pushing myself off the field. (I need to keep) working out and stay focused on school, and everything else will fall into place."
