Paul Henry (OL, Ft. Smith, AR) - The 6' 7", 265 pound offensive tackle committed to Ole…
Paul Henry still solid with Ole Miss
The 6' 7", 275 pound offensive tackle amazed the Ole Miss coaches at the OL/DL camp with his footwork.
"I ran a 4.9 forty, and I think that pretty much shocked them. They said I had the best feet out of all the big men they had at their camp."
That is the main reason colleges like Ole Miss, MSU, Kansas State, and Arkansas tried to gain a verbal pledge from the athletic linemen.
"It was really that not hard of a decision for me. I just like how Ole Miss works out and how they coach. Everything is real up tempo and intense. They get the best out of you. I also love Coach Kehoe. He is great. I can not wait to get down there."
Verbal pledges are non-binding and college recruiters are still calling.
"Coach Malzone from Arkansas calls all of the time. He just tells me he wants me to come over there for a football game."
Will Henry be attending any football games?
"The only one I have scheduled is for Ole Miss' Homecoming on October 7th."
Most February signees wait until December and January to take their official visits; why will Henry use his so early?
"That is their homecoming. I feel like I would rather go to their homecoming than any other time. That is when you get to really get a feel for a school. Homecoming, what else is there really to say?
Henry's teammate, Kodi Burns, is one of the top athletes in the South and is close friend of Paul. What is up with Kodi?
"I think he is down to Arkansas and Auburn. He came down to Ole Miss this summer, but he said he could not get a feel for anything because all of the coaches were gone. I am still working on trying to come back down there so he can see what it is really like, but I think he is pretty set on either Auburn or Arkansas."
For now, Paul is concentrating on his senior season and things could not be going much better.
"We are ranked #1 in Arkansas right now. The season is going great. We are 2-0. I think we have a chance of winning it all if we keep playing hard and keep getting better in practice every day, which I think we are. We just need to do what the coaches tell us."
Henry feels like he has also improved as a player.
"I feel I am a little better than last year because my pass protection is better."
Has Paul been graded this season?
I graded at 84 % for the Pine Bluff game and against Tulsa Science and Technology, I graded at 77%."
