Joe Koch has two players to watch at this week's Army All-American game: linebacker Travis Beckum…
The Guessing Game Continues
"I tweaked my groin on Monday and it was bothering me pretty bad on Tuesday. Today I felt pretty good. In fact, something came over me today and I had a great day."
We asked Henderson if he has seen a difference in the high school football he played in Wisconsin and the few practices that he's had with the All-American's this week.
"Technique is very important here," said Henderson said. "I've been going up against Reggie Youngblood all week and I realize that I can't come up and use a spin move on him every time. These are offensive linemen that are the best of the best.
"At this level, you can't get by on talent alone. When you're used to being bigger and better than everyone else, it was a lot easier. Here, its all about technique and instinct."
The U.S. Army All-American Bowl is played in San Antonio, Texas., at the Alamodome on Jan. 15, 2005, and broadcast nationally on NBC at 1 p.m., Eastern. Scout.com is a sponsor, the official selection partner and exclusive on-line partner of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, as well as the associated U.S. Army Combine for underclassmen.
When it comes to recruiting, Henderson is still keeping everyone on pins and needles.
"I'm going to Wisconsin-Whitewater for a year and then I'm going to transfer to Madison (Wisconsin)," Henderson said laughing.
"I lie to you guys because I don't want anyone predicting or thinking that they know where I'm going to go. So sometimes I stir things up.
"Seriously, it's between Nebraska, Iowa and Tennessee."
There will be about 20 U.S. Army All-Americans that make commitments on Saturday at the Alamo Dome. We feel that Raymond Henderson could be the guy to pull a shocker.
Could it be Nebraska? Will Raymond pledge the Vols? Will it be the Hawkeyes? We'll find out this weekend.
