South Jersey OL Planning Trip to Rutgers

Bridgeton (N.J.) High offensive tackle Sean Henigin is fielding interest from a number of schools, and he told he will be making a trip to Rutgers this spring. The 6-foot-6, 320-pound Henigin also said one school is standing out to him. He spoke about his recruitment, what he wants in a program, and what he thinks of the coach recruiting him to Rutgers.

One of the most intriguing prospects in South Jersey is Bridgeton High offensive tackle Sean Henigin, who is fielding interest from a number of high-profile schools, including Rutgers.

The 6-foot-6, 320-pound Henigan said Wisconsin, Penn State, Florida, North Carolina, Duke, West Virginia and the Scarlet Knights are all recruiting him.

"Right now Wisconsin is standing out," Henigin said. "It's the style of the offense, and the way their lineman are, and how they produce NFL linemen. It's really my style of offense. It's a run-first offense and they just wear down their opponents."

Henigin, who plays right tackle for the Bulldogs, plans to visit Wisconsin for the Sept. 3 opener against UNLV.

But before the season arrives, Henigin will visit other campuses. One his list is a trip to Rutgers, which runs a similar pro-style offense and also has a strong history of sending offensive lineman to the NFL.

"They're interested and they want to get me up there to check out the campus and facilities and stuff," he said. "They said they would be down to the school (during the spring evaluation period)."

Henigin is being recruited by Rutgers defensive line coach Phil Galiano, who has made a favorable impression.

"He's cool. He's very player-friendly," Henigin said. "He knows how to talk to us, and not overdue it, but to get the point across. I have not had a chance to get to campus. I was going to go for a game, but something came up and I couldn't go.

"Nothing is scheduled yet, but I'm definitely going to head up there."

In addition to the style of play on the field, Henigin will also be gauging the atmosphere on campus when he makes visits.

"It matters because I want to be comfortable," he said.
