The word “fast” immediately comes to mind to describe Christopher Henderson.
Henderson, who has been listed with a time of 4.37 seconds, is ranked as the No. 6 athlete in the Class of 2017 by ESPN.com. He plays cornerback, receiver and running back at Columbus High (Miami), but his future is likely to be on the defensive side.
At 6-1 and 179, Henderson is long as well as fast.
He will get the chance to match up with some of the nation’s elite receivers when he plays in the Under Armour All-America Game in Orlando on Jan. 1. Henderson received his honorary jersey Monday when the Selection Tour presented by American Family Insurance came to his school.
“My football dream is to be the best that I can be and play as long as I can,” he said.
Henderson initially planned to play at Miami in his hometown but decommitted in early October. He has 26 reported offers and recently took a visit to Tennessee.
Many expect him to remain in-state at Florida after having made several unofficial visits to Gainesville.
