Henderson has eyes on Dawgs
Henderson (5-9, 185) is one of the fastest players in the state posting a recent forty time of 4.43 and he also sports a 40-inch vertical jump, evidenced by him winning the state long-jump championship as a sophomore in 2005.
Lots of letters are coming in from around the west coast as preliminary contact from schools interested in his services, but Henderson says two are standing out from the rest.
"Washington and Oregon are both sending me lots of stuff," Henderson said. "U-Dub is probably sending more right now and I really enjoy coach (Eric) Yarber. He and I have a great relationship. We have the same sense of humor and we've experienced a lot of the same things. I really like him a lot.
"When I was at the Husky junior day, he was making fun of me a little bit saying he wasn't sure if I could play wide receiver for him. I had good time and it was a lot of fun. It was all in good fun."
As far as which position Henderson wants to play, he says he doesn't really care.
"Playing corner or wide receiver doesn't really matter to me," Henderson said. "I just want a chance to play and to show what I can do. I could play either wherever I go. I like both of them."
Henderson was All-Narrows League as a receiver, corner and return man last year for the Tides. Teammate and soon-to-be Husky Jake Merrill has already been selling Washington to Henderson.
"He talks about it all the time," Henderson said with a laugh. "He's excited to go there and he wants me to join him."
Duke, Cal and Oregon State are three other schools contacting Henderson so far this month and he says he has no timeline on when he wants to make a decision on where he wants to play his college ball. He is still waiting on his first offer, but he likely won't have to wait very long.
