Last year at Raleigh (N.C.) Southeast, quarterback Gabriel Henderson turned heads and attracted the attention of college coaches. The 6-foot-1, 181-pound prospect may not be far from receiving his first verbal offers.
As a sophomore Henderson ran and passed for nearly 1,800 yards and 18 touchdowns. What schools are involved with him?
"Tennessee has been showing me a lot of interest," Henderson explained. "Maryland has been saying that they want me and Kendall (Moore) at their camp. They've talked about (verbally) offering us. They had offered our linebacker (Demetrius Hartsfield) and he just went there this year. I'd say Tennessee and Duke have been showing the most interest though.
"I'm also interested in North Carolina, Clemson and Virginia Tech, because they've been showing some interest too."
Henderson will attend the Ultimate 100 in Atlanta later this month. This Friday he will camp at Tennessee and will also attend events at North Carolina and Maryland in June. In July he will camp at Virginia Tech and Clemson.
Henderson runs the 40-yard dash in 4.62 seconds, but despite his athleticism he said he is being recruited exclusively as a quarterback.
He believes his rushing numbers will significantly rise this season because of a change in the offense.
