Hard work pays off for Conway

Cleveland (Ohio) Shaker Heights three-star offensive tackle Henry Conway has had a busy summer, camping all over the Midwest. And the summer camp tour has been kind to him.
Along with earlier offers from Cincinnati, Indiana, Akron, Bowling Green and Ohio, the 6-foot-6, 295-pounder said he's now added new offers from an ACC and Big Ten program.
"It's looking good," Conway said. "I just received an offer from Michigan State and Boston College. There are a lot of other schools looking at me like Illinois, Michigan and Ohio State, from the Big 10. West Virginia, Pittsburgh Syracuse seem very interested in me from the Big East."
"I also think LSU and Georgia are looking at me now. They haven't contacted me, but they contacted my coach. It seems like everyone that hasn't offered me is just waiting on the season and that first game."
The two new offers are especially impressive, he said.
"Those are really good offers," he said. "I'm glad I received them. I like Boston College. I mean they have good academics. They have a good offensive lineman tradition. I like Michigan State because they're consistent. I like their consistency. They're always a good program. I like their campus a lot."
Conway said he's built a good relationship with a few coaches recruiting him.
"I love talking to Dan Roushar, the offensive line coach from Michigan State," he said. "I like talking to Bobby Johnson from Indiana. And Eric Wolford for the University of Illinois, Jeff Mullen from West Virginia and Ben Sirmans from Boston College are cool, too."
Any of them stick out more than the others?
"I like coach Johnson," Conway said. "He played defensive line, and he's African American so I relate to him and feel really comfortable with him. That's the same thing with coach Sirmans."
Ohio State is another school that Conway said he's getting interest from. MAC schools are also all over him.
"Yeah I went to Ohio State's camp, Akron, Michigan State and Bowling Green camps," he said. "I believe I impressed the coaching staffs at every camp. Ohio State, I think I impressed them, because they have been talking to me. I think I put myself on the map. Their recruiter said they're going to keep an eye on me. I got them to notice them."
But in the end a few schools have started to emerge on top at this point.
"My No. 1 school right now is Michigan State," he said. My second would be Boston College. Cincinnati and Indiana are tied for third. I'd like to go to Ohio State, stay in my area. I like the Big Ten or Big East. I'll probably make my decision at the middle of the season."
