The Michigan Wolverines have their sights set on the top tight end in the 2019 class, Hudson Henry. The 6’5 225 lb recruit from Pulaski Academy, will be visiting Ann Arbor this weekend.
Henry comes from a family of football players who have played for Arkansas, and his brother Hunter is a dangerous tight end for the Los Angeles Chargers.
Maize ‘n’ Brew chatted with Hudson and he’s excited to meet with U-M coaches. “I haven’t really many of the staff, but I do know Coach (Dan) Enos who just recently got there. He coached both my brothers at Arkansas. I’m excited to meet them all this weekend though,” he said.
The Enos/Henry connection is a good one and Henry is looking forward to building upon it further. “He’s awesome. He’s a great coach and great man. My brother loves him as a coach at Arkansas and so did our family. So, I’m excited to build that relationship even further.”
Henry likes the way Michigan uses tight ends in their scheme. “I know how they use the tight end and they do it very well. I think I can fit into that scheme and be great at it.” Henry said.
When asked what type of player he is, Henry said “My family has always taught toughness. My dad instilled that take no prisoners, fight to the end kind of mentality that me and my brothers have always had. That’s what kind of player I am mentally. Physically, I can catch the ball in traffic and go up for the high balls. I can block too and that’s where that physicality and toughness comes into play.”
Henry is looking forward to meeting with Jim Harbaugh, saying “A lot of people know who he is and what he has accomplished. I’ve heard a lot about what kind of man and coach he is. Lots of good things, and I can’t wait to meet him.”
Henry’s visit this weekend to Michigan will give us more of an indication as to whether he and Michigan are a great fit for one another, but for now Henry is honored to have received an offer from U-M. “It was awesome. Such an honor to get that from such a great school.”
Henry is the No. 1 tight end in the 2019 class and rated as the 34th best prospect overall, and has a 4 star rating at the moment.
