Jenks (Okla.) finished one game shy of a state championship this past season but it was still a disappointment for the Trojans, who come in with a goal of a state title every year. The 2011 season could see them rebound to win it all with quite a few top juniors returning.
Though Oklahoma running back commit Alex Ross is the headliner, Jenks has another prospect on college radars as well. Defensive tackle Ashton Henderson recently picked up his first offer.
"I got my first offer from Louisville," the 6-foot-1, 321-pound Henderson said on Wednesday evening. "They offered me a couple weeks ago. They had called my school and told my coach and he told me about it.
"I call coach (Clint) Hurtt and coach (Vance) Bedford every other day. In fact I just got off the phone with both of them today. I'm supposed to try and go out there for their spring game. It's on April 15, I think."
An SEC program could be close to becoming the second to offer Henderson.
"On April 2, I'm supposed to go to Arkansas for a visit," he said. "They're showing a lot of interest and thinking about offering me. I've been talking to coach (Garrick) McGee quite a bit.
"I'm supposed to be taking a visit to Nebraska for their camp this summer. I'm also supposed to go to camps at LSU and Miami as well."
The in-state Sooners are also keeping tabs on the big defensive lineman.
"OU, they say that I'm a top prospect and they look forward to recruiting me hard," Henderson said. "I just need to keep my grades up and maintain everything on the field."
At the moment, Henderson admits that a few schools sit atop his list of favorites.
"Right now Arkansas, LSU and OU are standing out quite a bit," he said. "Of course, Louisville does too because they offered."
