Kentucky Football Recruiting: Dorian Hendrix Visits Illinois


2014 inside linebacker Dorian Hendrix attended the Illinois Fighting Illini’s Junior Day on March 9th. This was his third trip to Champaign as he attended the team’s Junior Day on January 26th and unofficially visited Illinois on November 10th.

Hendrix has offers from seven teams. The teams to have offered at him include: the Bowling Green Falcons, the Buffalo Bulls, the Kentucky Wildcats, the Illinois Fighting Illini, the Indiana Hoosiers, the Ohio Bobcats, and the Toledo Rockets.

It is projected that Hendrix is heavily interested in the Kentucky Wildcats.

Hendrix is a 6’1″, 215 pound linebacker from Dayton, Ohio. He is currently a junior at Wayne High School.

The Wayne Warriors made the Division I Ohio State Playoffs, but lost to Archbishop Moeller High School, 21-43.

As a junior in 2012, Hendrix recorded 124 tackles, one sack, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery.

The three-star recruit is currently ranked 27th in the state of Ohio and 25th among  inside linebackers by 247Sports.
