NW NIKE camp report - Joey Henley

Joey Henley is a 6-4, 200-pound tight end prospect from Kent (Wash.) Kentridge and Joey took his game down to Eugene, Oregon to see how he measured up with the best the Northwest has to offer at the NW NIKE camp. He found things to his liking, but not necessarily the trip down.

"I woke up about 4:30 to come down," Henley told Dawgman.com after the camp was over. "It was a little rough getting out of the car." (laughs)

The teaching Joey received during the camp was enough to make the experience completely worthwhile. "They taught us how to get off better in the 40, how if you can lengthen your stride two more inches you can take two-tenths of a second off," he said. "They taught us to use our arms more when we run, a lot more things about footwork. Also, learning to run nicer routes, good get-offs. Be strong."

Joey ran a 4.81 40, 4.11 shuttle and jumped 28 inches in the vertical leap.

Recruiting attention for Henley has been slow, but steady. "I talked to Coach (Randy) Hart from U-Dub," he said. "I talked to Idaho, Idaho State, Washington State and Nevada." He will be attending both the Washington and Washington State camps in the hopes of building off his solid NIKE camp workout.

He currently has no scholarship offers on the table.
