UNLV coach Tim Hundley made the trip to Sacramento (Calif.) to visit Henderson and his family and talk about the possibilities with the Rebels.
"It was really nice," Henderson said. "He (Hundley) said they're pretty high on me and it seems like it would be a nice school to go to. He talked about the ins and outs of college in terms of school and grading and all that stuff."
Hundley also pitched the coaching staff's cohesiveness; something Henderson says is one of his top priorities.
"I like the honesty. Most of the coaches are in their third year and they get along really well."
Across the Pacific Ocean is an opportunity for Henderson to play in a familiar system at Hawaii.
"Their defense is pretty much the same as what I played in high school so I really like that," he said. "I'm going to visit them the first weekend of February."
Henderson says Colorado State is well in the mix too but he doesn't know too much about the Rams.
"I'm going there this upcoming weekend," he said. "They're recruiting me as a receiver."
With three very different possibilities, Henderson will be looking for which school fits his values the best.
"I'm going to be looking for how the coaches treat the players. That's the first thing," he said. "Next is the atmosphere. I don't want to go anywhere where the players don't get along with the coaches, you have to have chemistry. Then is how the academics are and what percentage of the football team graduates."
