UNC High on Henson's List After Visit

As he works toward assembling a favorite schools list, Brad Henson made a visit to North Carolina on Sunday.

"The visit went well," Henson said. "UNC is a great school. I liked the campus a lot. I like the coaches too. UNC is high on my list right now. Everything went well."

Henson, a 6-foot-4, 275-pound offensive lineman from Toms River (N.J.) Monsignor Donovan, is not prepared to name a favorite schools list yet, but he sets the odds of UNC making the cut at "high."

"I'll start narrowing things down by the middle of the summer," Henson said. "And I'll probably make my decision before the season starts. After I take these last few visits, I'll probably have a top list narrowed down or maybe I'll just commit – I'm not sure yet."

Henson is scheduled to make a return visit to Virginia on June 3. He is also in the process of scheduling trips to Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Previously, he has visited Boston College, Connecticut, Miami, NC State, Rutgers, Virginia, and West Virginia.

After visiting NC State on Saturday, Henson arrived in Chapel Hill on Sunday morning and remained on campus until 3 o'clock. Upon his arrival, he was given a full tour of UNC's campus.

"We toured a lot of the facilities – the academic places, the weight room, we looked at the field, the dorm area," Henson said. "My cousin told me about the campus before and he was spot on. It was actually beautiful."

Henson was able to meet up with his cousin, who is enrolled at law school at UNC, during the visit.

Coming into the visit, Henson, who has started at every position along the offensive line during his prep career, wasn't clear how UNC planned on utilizing him. He had that question and more answered during meetings with Larry Fedora and Chris Kapilovic, UNC's offensive line coach.

"[Kapilovic] told me where he sees me playing, which is interior," Henson said. "He said I could play center or guard – he actually said I could play tackle, but he likes me more as an interior player. We sat down and watched some film and he showed me some stuff.

"[Fedora] just told me about what he would do as a head coach, what kind of guy he is, how I'd be treated, and he was talking to me about where he sees me playing. He seems like a great guy."

Henson, who will be a four-year starter for Donovan, said he prefers to play offensive guard on the collegiate level.
