The top recruit in Oregon that has not yet declared his future intentions is Jesuit high School’s Henry Mondeaux. And when he does some lucky team is going to hit the Jack pot. Henry is 6’4.5″ plus and 245 and plays all over the football field. And he does so very very well. So much so that he is a 3 Star heading to 4 Star Rivals.com Recruit making him a premier prospect in the entire US.
The issue is where to use him. Best suited for Defensive End of Tight End this big man is also playing Full Back lead blocking for Joey Alfieri (4 Star Stanford commit- 6’3″- 225 lbs). Coach Ken Potter is also playing him at the Linebacker spot and he can be split out wide too. There is however no doubt that he will not have an issue finding a home and position at one of the best colleges in the Nation.
Henry holds offers from a boat load of D-1 powers and has started to trim his list.
Mondeaux says as of right now Oregon and Washington are getting official visits from him. That is big as that means if he stays in the Pac 12 it will likely be right here in the NW and for one of these two top rated teams.
Nebraska has offered him. Florida and Miami are on the verge of offering he thinks and all three of them are on the final list. Going back East is something he would like to do at least to have a look and help him decide his future.
The Crusaders have dropped 2 games this year and are 2-2. Something that has not happened in years. Not to worry. They lost to #1 Camas in Washington and #1 Central Catholic in Oregon. They will be there when the end of the years comes. Last week in the Holy War Mondeaux caught a couple of nice passes and made some huge defensive plays. He also blew massice holes for Alfieri who ran for 240 yards and 3 TD’s on 14 carries. What we do know is that the Crusaders are young, are going to get better, and that Sophomore QB Eric Restic is getting better too. Once he starts connecting with Mondeaux they could be unstoppable.
No time table for recruiting or a decision has been set for Henry and he is focused on the season as he should be. If he is felling it he is deciding. But do not expect that to be anytime soon. Best of luck to he and the Crusaders in the weeks ahead.
