One of New Jersey's finest recruits is keeping an open mind, but that doesn't mean he hasn't been particularly impressed with anyone. Who has defensive tackle Dwayne Hendricks been thinking about lately?
"Well, I'm still keeping all my options open," he said. "So I still don't have one or two schools ahead of the others. But I've been really impressed with Michigan ever since I took that official visit over there back in October. They have a huge respect for their tradition and everyone has a common goal. The school is really big, but it's not a place where you'll get lost or isolated. I really like Michigan.
"But like I said, I don't have a leader right now. I do still like schools like Iowa and Miami," he said. "They're programs that are going to be good for a while, and they play really physical football. Virginia has also impressed me a lot lately. I've scheduled an official visit to UVA for Nov. 28, and I still have to go to Iowa and Miami in the next couple of months too."
The 6-foot-4, 246-pound defensive tackle from Millville, N.J. runs the 40-yard dash in 4.8 seconds and explodes into the backfield right when the ball is snapped. His tenacity on the field has earned him a 4-star ranking from Rivals.com, and he's rated as one of the top few players in the Garden state.
