N.J. Lineman Interested in UNC

Despite a lack of visits, three schools have emerged as favorites for Sean Henigin.

"I'm really focused on academics along with the football," Henigin said. "Boston College is definitely up there. I have family that's down in North Carolina, so that's a helper. Wisconsin is a real big offensive linemen school."

Wisconsin's camp in June is the only recruiting trip Henigin, a 6-foot-6, 320-pound offensive linemen from Bridgeton (N.J.), has made. However, he's working on scheduling several trips before the end of the summer.

"I'm getting ready to visit Boston College," Henigin said. "I'm thinking about getting back to Wisconsin. I'm thinking about [visiting] North Carolina, as well. I'd love to visit Stanford, but that's a ways away."

Henigin would like to have a verbal commitment made before his senior football season.

"I want to be able to focus on football and I can play knowing where I'm going," Henigin said. "It's really going to come down to where I feel most comfortable, the surroundings, the tradition of the school, what the school has to offer to me – pretty basic stuff.

However, if he hasn't visited all of the schools he's interested in, Henigin will hold off on making a commitment. Regardless, at the latest he hopes to be committed to a school by midseason.

Henigin says roughly a dozen schools have verbally offered him a scholarship, including Nebraska, UNC, Penn State, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Henigin began hearing from UNC, namely Allen Mogridge, during the spring. His last conversation with the UNC staff occurred within the last month.

"They said they saw tape on me and they like me," Henigin said. "And they want to get a visit set up. They said they're going to be in contact when they're allowed. We talked about what they have to offer and I told them what I have to offer."

In addition to starting on Bridgeton's offensive line the past couple of seasons, Henigin has long snapping experience.
