Henry Has Positive UW Experience

Playing football, basketball and baseball, Kevin Henry does a little bit of everything for Morris High School. However, it is his ability on the football field that has attracted attention this offseason, where the Illinois defensive end prospect has been camping all over the Midwest.

MADISON - Junior defensive end Kevin Henry has been having a busy and productive off-season. Coming off an average season, Henry was content with the way things ended up for himself and his team.

"We ended the season with a 7-5 record and made it to the quarterfinal game," Henry told Badger Nation. "Personally I thought I did OK."

Henry has been working meticulously this off-season trying to improve himself in all aspects of his game.

"I've been doing team workouts along with doing extra workouts and lifting in the weight room," said Henry.

While he is keeping his options open, Henry has received offers so far from Indiana, Toledo, Central Michigan and Northern Illinois. Last month, Henry had visits planned to Central Michigan and Indiana.

While the Badgers haven't made an offer to him yet, he has visited Camp Randall twice so far and has been happy after both visits.

"It's a really nice school with a great campus," said Henry. "The coaches were nice and it was an overall good experience on both occasions."

Henry feels that his speed and will to win is what separates him from the rest of the recruits; along with his hard work ethic and immense effort he knows that he will be an asset to any team at the next level.

While two-a-days will be starting soon, Henry is undecided on when he wants to make a commitment whether that's before or after his senior season depending on how things work out. His main focus is on his final year and plans to help his team get deeper in the playoffs. For Henry, the only thing for sure is that anything can happen in the next six months.
