In the end, it was Florida that swayed Henderson’s decision, which came on national television like stars such as Landon Collins had done before.
Henderson is a physical standout at 6-foot-1 and 183 pounds and excelled at The Opening. Now he’ll get a chance to star in Gainesville at the next level after previously breaking commitments to Oregon and Oklahoma.
