"I like their tradition at West Virginia," he said. "West Virginia is a good school and they have a great football program. I'm also a fan of Tavon Austin.
"I haven't made a visit to Clemson, but from what I know they are one big family. They are a top ten football team and they make sure their players are well groomed mentally and physically to be productive young men."
In addition, Henderson is receiving looks from Missouri, Boston College, Penn State, Temple, Maryland and Rutgers.
"They are all telling me they really want me, they are all very interested."
In recent weeks, Henderson took visits to Boston College and Maryland.
"Boston College was great," he said. "I liked the experience and the scenery. The fans and atmosphere was good. I talked to a lot of the coaches and they just got to know me better.
"Maryland was excellent too. I really like Maryland cause of their academics and the fact they are really interactive. They always are asking how I'm doing and making sure I'm keeping up with my school work. I would say right now Maryland stands out a bit."
In terms of what he wants, the tailback eyes a few things.
"I want a medium sized school with a good football program," he said. "I want somewhere to have the classes I want to major in. I don't know what I want to study yet though. I also want to be in an urban area around people."
Earning first team all-conference wide receiver, second team all-conference return man and defensive back, Henderson posted 14 touchdowns on the year and one interception for a score.
"I think I did well," he said. "I was much stronger and faster this season. My speed, agility and moves really stuck out."
