Henderson continues to add college offers

HARTFORD, Ala. (WTVY) - Penn State. USC. Michigan. Alabama. Auburn.

All high caliber schools with one common goal. They all want Geneva County's Emmanue Henderson on their team

Henderson is heating up on the recruiting trail.

Despite the Coronavirus halting spring activities in the state, Henderson has received four more scholarship offers in the last month from major college programs.

"I didn't know I had t in me until that first offer came from South Carolina," said Henderson. "That means something to me because they were the first ones to offer. They really seen something in me."
Not much could slow down Henderson this past season.
The rising junior tallied over 3,200 all-purpose yards for the Bulldogs.

In total, 14 Division-1 programs have offered Henderson, with some big name schools, such as Clemson and reigning national champion LSU, likely to follow.

Even with his name in the aching national spotlight, Henderson continues to remain humble through the whole process.

"I'm just blessed my name has traveled this far across the country," said Henderon. "I never knew my name would go this far. I know I have lots of offers, but that don't change who I am. I'm still Emmanuel Henderson. The cool kid who likes everybody. That's just me. I don't let it get to me."

Like it has for all athletes, Henderson's training looks a lot different right now than what he's used to.

"I can lift more weight now because we're timed at school, " said Henderson. "I can work out as long as I want to now. My cousin Javion is an Alabama commit. He motivates me because I want to be great. I try to work just as hard as he does."

With two years remaining in high school, Henderson isn't in a hurry to narrow down his college choices. His main goal is bringing a state title back to Hartford.
