As Adam Hensley walked out onto Mountaineer Field during his Junior Day visit, the 2016 LB was getting a small taste of what football at WVU is like. Hensley said that the experience he had that day was unbelievable and he can’t wait to return to WVU.
During his visit, Hensley met lead recruiter Bruce Tall and the two have begun developing a relationship beyond the football field. Tall stressed the academic part of WVU to Hensley, mainly the engineering department which is what Hensley is planning to study in college.
The most important part of the trip to Hensley was the opportunity to meet with DC Tony Gibson, who stressed Hensley’s importance to WVU’s defense.
“He really stressed how much of an asset he believes I can be in the defensive scheme.” he said.
WVU has always been special to Hensley considering they were his first college offer, and for him that made it personal.
“I was really honored by the WVU offer because it was the first college offer I had gotten and I was very thankful they see me playing at the college level.” Hensley said.
Dawson has since left WVU, but that hasn’t stopped the Mountaineers. Ron Crook and Bruce Tall have stepped in and taken over where Dawson left off. Hensley has since picked up offers from Toledo, Miami (Ohio), while Northwestern has stayed in contact with him but hasn’t extended an offer.
Hensley’s first visit to WVU was during the Baylor game on October 18th, and that left quite a impression. Junior Day only established WVU as the team to beat in this process.
