One of the most overlooked prospects in Kentucky is Elizabethtown tight end, Mitchell Henry. Scout Kentucky Preps got a chance to catch up with Henry about his recruitment.

Productive is one word used to describe Etown standout Mitchell Henry. The 6-foot-5, 240-pound tight end had 52 catches for 764 yard and eight touchdowns as a junior. Those numbers were good enough to place him on the All-District team as well as receiving honorable mention for All-State.

"I did pretty good this year," said Henry. "I had about 50 receptions. I want to improve those numbers next year," he said.

"We run the spread at my school. I run good routes and catch the ball well," he said. "I also can block good. I want to work on that more because I don't do enough of it," he continued.

Henry has had a busy spring of visits so far. The tight end has been to Kentucky, Louisville, Western Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Ole Miss Cincinnati and Bowling Green.

"All the schools I have been to have been really nice. All the coaches have been nice," he said. Three schools have offered Henry a scholarship at this point. "Memphis, Bowling Green and Western Kentucky have all offered," he said.

While Henry has those offers in hand, he's still taking his time to make a final decision. He plans to choose after his senior season is over. Henry also would like to hear more from a few schools. "I would like to hear more from Purdue, Illinois, Ole Miss and Kentucky," he said.
