"Right now I'm hearing from too many schools to name" said Henne. "My Top 5 are Michigan, Penn State, Tennessee, Georgia, and Miami. All of them have offered me scholarships."
Who can blame them. Henne passed for over 2200 yards his junior year with 23 touchdowns. He also ran for over 600 yards and 5 scores. His excellent mobility is one reason so many schools are after him. 'I'm a pure passer, but I'm mobile enough to avoid the rush, and turn near disasters into positive plays" said Henne.
At 6'3, 210lbs, Henne also has 4.65 speed in the 40. He appears to be the type of QB Ty Willingham and Co. like to recruit. Has he heard from the Irish yet? "Occassionally. But they aren't recruiting me as hard as the other schools have. They haven't offered yet either. I guess I would give them strong consideration if they decided to recruit me harder."
This spring and summer will be very busy times for Henne. He's already unofficially visited Penn State, Michigan, Purdue, and Illinois. Plus, he plans on attending a few QB camps this year as well.
With so much on his plate, how will he decide which school he wants to attend. "I'm just going to take all 5 of my visits and see where I fit best. I'll probably decide sometime close to national signing day. I'm looking at teams depth charts right now because I want an opportunity to play early. I also want to have strong communication between the head coach and quarterback coach. Plus, I want to go to a school that has a strong Business department because that's what I plan on majoring in."
Henne also lettered in Track and Basketball this year. Football is where he shined, however. When it comes to his recruiting, he has a plan, and has it all figured out.
Comments: Too early to tell anything at this moment. He wants to let this play out. We'll know more after the May evaluation period whether Notre Dame will recruit Chad harder. This seems to be a class with tons of talented quarterbacks, and the Irish are in on a lot of them. Within the next month or so, we should have a better idea where Chad ranks on Notre Dame's wish list.
