Joseph Henderson In Action

Joseph Henderson might not be the most recognizable name in Ohio for the 2014 class, but that is changing for the Shaker Heights defensive end. Henderson's athletic ability is off the charts for someone his size.

It's hard to believe a 2014 prospect could be under the radar at 6-foot-4, 215-pounds, but Shaker Heights defensive end/linebacker Joseph Henderson is not a high-profile recruit yet.

Henderson started at defensive end last season as a sophomore and was quite effective as a pass-rusher, although quite raw as a prospect. He also contributed at tight end.

Schools such as Cincinnati, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State and Nebraska have been to Shaker Heights recently checking on Henderson.

Two weeks ago, he impressed at the Nike Football Training Camp in Columbus as a defensive end, and had success rushing against several highly-ranked offensive linemen.

Henderson also has the speed and athleticism to possibly play linebacker at the next level. At last Saturday's Raw Talent Sports Camp, he worked out as both a linebacker and cornerback and was impressive in coverage.

Here are a few clips of Henderson in action from last Saturday in coverage.
