    I’m sure he still gets labeled as “white boy” by other teams when they go against him. Imagine Twitter when he sees the field at CB in college, they will have no clue.

    Kentucky Speedster WR Jackson Hensley committed to Harvard. Another stellar White Athlete to The Ivy League.. Should've have had more offers to his name, same ol story.

    Thanks Bucky. Yes indeed Hensley (legit 4.4 speed) is very fast and is yet another top tier athlete that has opted for the Ivy League which is generally considered a step down from the big boy schools.

    But you wouldn't know it from the local Kentucky press. Hensley is not from a big town area so the press is viewing his track to Harvard as hitting the big time. And I agree. Forget this junior league label that the media puts on the Ivy League. There are some real white skill NFL talents playing in this league and the NFL should wake up to that fact.

    Oh by the way these Ivy league players are smart ( no kidding) and they won't cause an ounce of trouble in an NFL locker room.

    I have been watching football a long time and I know good talent when I see it and there are a plethora of good white skill players in the Ivy League these days. I think the line play is probably a step down in general and QB play isn't consistently as good and depth is missing but that said there are some tremendous athletes playing in the Ivy league.

    And why not? Talk about tradition.

    While I might prefer that say Tennessee goes out and recruits players like Hensley, I take some solace that he is heading into a proper football league just the same.

    Good points, it is a big time deal for a kid from the Hills of Eastern Kentucky headed to Harvard. Great for him looking forward to following his career.

    Makes one wonder how many other states best DBs are white kids being ignored during the recruiting process. It's not a lack of white athletes playing the game at the high school position its the blatant discrimination that filters them out before they get to the next level.
