Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln cornerback Ashton Henderson has received more and more interest from college recruiters of late.
"It seems like every day some new school calls," he said.
Clemson and N.C. State are the two latest programs to inquire about the 6-foot, 180-pounder.
"My coach told me that (N.C.State) called about me," Henderson said. "And the Clemson coach (wide receivers coach Dabo Swinney) came by the school and asked for some tape.
"They both were at my game last Friday night."
That game was a 21-14 victory against Tallahassee Godby last Friday night. That capped an 8-1 season for Henderson and company.
The interest by the Tigers and Wolfpack comes on the heels of Henderson's official visit to Ole Miss the weekend of Oct. 15 for the Rebels' game against Alabama. Mississippi has already offered, along with UCLA, Michigan State and Vanderbilt.
His interest in the Bruins stems from when head coach Karl Dorrell visited his school in the spring and scouted him.
"I really like the head coach," he said.
Henderson says he plans to set up an official visit with the Spartans.
"I've been watching their games," Henderson said. "It just seems like the atmosphere surrounding their program is good."
As for any favorites, Henderson says that he's staying open, in part because of his team's success. Lincoln opens the state playoffs Friday night against Jacksonville Lee.
"I'm just focused on trying to get a ring," he said.
