Toms River (N.J.) Monsignor Donovan offensive guard Brad Henson had a busy fall with football and the recruiting process.

On the field Henson and his teammates had a season to remember.

"Our team went 6-4 this year so we were able to get into the playoffs for the first time in eight years," Henson explained. "So it was a good year for the team."

Individually Henson shined and helped his stock with many of the schools that were evaluating him.

"I feel like my pass blocking and my pulling and blocking in space really improved," he added.

At 6-foot-5 and 275-pounds, Henson is one of the top guard prospects on the east coast from 2013. He already has verbal offers from Boston College, Rutgers, UCF and West Virginia, with others sure to come.

His own football season dominated his attention during the fall but Henson was able to look ahead to his future.

"During the season I visited Penn State, West Virginia, Rutgers and Miami," he recalled.

"I wouldn't say one trip was better than the others. They were all pretty much good."
