Scout 300 CB Breaks Down Top Four
Scout 300 cornerback Dravon Henry has a top four, but it is not a final four. The Aliquippa (Pa.) High standout visited West Virginia over the weekend and returned home with Penn State, West Virginia, Pittsburgh and Ohio State atop his list, but there is plenty of time for movement. "As time goes on it can change, but right now, it will be those four," the 5-foot-11, 180-pound Henry said. "I talked to my mom and dad, and made a top four." While Henry said he could make a decision at any time, he added he was more inclined to wait until after his senior season to settle on a school. Furthermore, Aliquippa coach Michael Zmijanac said he "never" had a player commit prior to his senior season. "There's always room to get to learn more about a school," Henry said. "Now, I have to build a closer relationship with the coaching staffs at those four schools, and get to know some of the players there, too." One of the common themes of Henry's top four is his relationship with the coaching staff. Each school is recruiting him to play in the secondary, which is what he wants. Also, location could play a factor, but not in the traditional sense of playing near home. "My mom wants me to go somewhere far, like on a plane," Henry said. "But at the end of the day, it's going to be where it's most comfortable. " Henry gave a thought on each school in his top four. Pittsburgh: "I like the facilities. It's close to home, and you can't go wrong with that. I like the locker room- they have a hot tub in there- and all-around, it was nice, and it was nice field because it's the (Pittsburgh) Steelers field." Ohio State: "That is a college team growing up I liked and wanted to play at, so they had to be there. First of all, I like coach (Urban) Meyer. That's a reason why any athlete would go there. He's a great coach, and he always had a winning record. They are very competitive and I like their tradition. "Their facility is big, and I actually like their locker room and stadium a lot. Their fans rush the field after a big game, and it can't get any better than that. " West Virginia: "They always have been a favorite school of mine. My cousin, Charles Fisher, played cornerback there from 1995 to 1999, and he always talked to me about it. I've listened to him, and coach (Tony) Gibson, the safety coach, started with a relationship with me, so I put them on my list. "It seemed like a place like Aliquippa football. Very physical and tense, and that's what drew me down there to West Virginia." Penn State: "I'm starting to build a relationship with (assistant) coach (John) Butler, and that kind of attracted me to Penn State, too. He told me about being a pioneer, and to go a different way. And what he meant by that is that everybody from Aliquippa goes to Pittsburgh, but someone eventually has to go somewhere else and be different, and lead as an example. That led me on. "It seems like a very nice play to play. They are very physical. They are always on television it seems like, and who wouldn't want to be on TV? That's what attracted me, too."
