Versatile Henderson Looking At Handful
Quadree Henderson made his name on the 7-on-7 circuit last year as a receiver, then earned is offers playing running back at Wilmington (Del.) Alexis I. Dupont High. Now, back on the 7-on-7 circuit, Henderson is playing receiver, which he plans to play in college. And while he is not listing leaders, there are a few schools high on his list because of familiarity. He likes Rutgers and West Virginia, where he visited, as well as Nebraska and Ohio, both of which he hopes to visit soon. Those four offered, and Arkansas is showing strong interest. "I keep getting ((information) from them," Henderson said of Arkansas. "Nebraska, we're still trying to get out there. I was going to go out there with my dad on April 22, but it was (too) expensive)." Henderson's latest visit was a 20-minute in-and-out Saturday to Rutgers. He was traveling to the Pylon 7v7, and stopped off for his first visit there since December. "We didn't get to see too much but it was nice up there," he said. "They want me to come back up and be with my parents so they can sit me down with coach Kyle Flood and talk to him, with my parents. We talk on Facebook and I get mail from them." The trip enabled Henderson to meet with his new recruiting coach at Rutgers, receivers coach Ben McDaniels. "He and I met for the first time Saturday," Henderson said. "He was talking about coming back up to campus, and how he likes me speed. He said they need more speed. He said with me being so versatile they can use me in their offense." The 5-foot-9, 175-pound Henderson visited West Virginia in the winter, and he hit it off with receivers coach Lonnie Galloway. "He was very nice," Henderson said. "I went up there for a visit and we sat down at a basketball and talked about how they can use me in the offense, and that they could use me like Tavon Austin." Austin is someone Henderson tries to model his game after. "I watch his tapes every day to see what he can do in the open field," Henderson said. "If I was to go to West Virginia, I could see what I could do. They see me like Tavon Austin already, so I could step in and play a big role in their offense." As a junior, Henderson caught 31 passes for 851 yards (27.4 ypc) and 10 touchdowns. Defensively, he had 36 tackles, including a sack, intercepted a pass and returned a kickoff for a touchdown.
