DT Kyle Henderson Profile
Junior cornerback Derrick Baity, sophomore quarterback Rex Culpepper and junior defensive tackle Kyle Henderson stopped in Clemson for their first of three college visits.
"It was pretty cool. I like Clemson. It was pretty cool," Henderson told CUTigers last week.
What stood out?
"Probably the hospitality, after I watched them practice, the players were really open, they talked to me, which was pretty cool. The indoor was really nice, the facility."
The Clemson coaches also made an impression.
"Same thing, really open, really nice, I sat in a meeting. I went in the defensive line meeting and the defensive line coach [Dan Brooks] was pretty cool."
Several schools have offered, including Cincinnati, FAU, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Mississippi State, Missouri, Oregon State and UCF. Clemson could be on the way with one later this year.
"They like my film and they'll most likely offer me in the spring when they watch me practice," Henderson said.
The group went to Tennessee and Wake Forest after the Clemson stop.
"They were both pretty cool. Both have beautiful campuses," Henderson said. "Wake Forest is really, really beautiful. Tennessee has a really, really nice overall football atmosphere. Same thing [as Clemson], the players were really nice. They gave me tips when I was asking questions. Wake Forest was on spring break, so didn't see any of the players."
"I don't like to release a top five or anything. I like to stay open."
Two factors will be kept in mind as he works towards a decision.
"Hospitality is a major factor, academics, because I know there's life after football. So, wherever I go, I plan on getting a great [education]," Henderson said. "Those matter for me, academics and how they treat me. I don't want to be somewhere, if I stop playing football they won't like me, but I don't plan on stopping anytime."
As a junior, Henderson had 70 tackles, six sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception. As a fullback on offense, he rushed for two touchdowns.
