Hunter Henry update
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette/RICK MCFARLAND --08/20/12-- Pulaski Academy's Hunter Henry (82) runs after he caught a pass in their scrimmage with Fayetteville at PA's Joe B. Hatcher Stadium in Little Rock Monday.
Pulaski Academy tight end Hunter Henry said he was told by Arkansas Coach Bret Bielema that he was the first Razorback prospect he called since taking the job.
Henry said Bielema called him shortly after today's press conference where he was introduced as the new head Hog. He was very impressed that Bielema would reach out to him like that. He called Bielema a "very personable guy".
He said he has researched Wisconsin's usage of the tight end and is definitely satisfied by what he's been able to find out. Bielema told him about all the tight ends he's put into the NFL.
Henry plans to make his official visit to Fayetteville in January.
