Henderson talks about his plans

Mikey Henderson said that because of his conversations with the staff at Georgia he feels like he will be a defensive back when he arrives in Athens. Currently he is being recruited as an athlete.

Mikey Henderson is not planning on taking any other visits other than to the University of Georgia. "Its just Georgia," Henderson said.

Henderson said that because of his conversations with the staff at Georgia he feels like he will be a defensive back when he arrives in Athens. Currently he is being recruited as an athlete. "As I have been talking to them, I think that I am going to play defensive back and be a return man," Henderson said. Henderson added that he could "learn a lot" from current Georgia return star Damien Gary.

"Any time that you see freshman coming in a stepping up it just shows that (the coaches) give opportunities for the best players to play," said Henderson about making an impact as a true freshman.

Henderson said that he is on track to qualify academically.

At the beginning of the recruiting process Henderson said that quarterbacks coach Mike Bobo was calling his but that now Secondary coach Willie Martinez is the one calling.

"Coach Martinez always talks about me being ready to come down there and that he's ready to teach me the ropes down there at Georgia," he said.

Henderson said that he only slightly concerned about coming from a small high school program to Georgia. "The only transition is to come from a little school to a big school. The atmosphere will be different and I will have to start from the bottom again. They say that's the hardest thing going into college, " Henderson said.

Some have questioned if Henderson will actually sign with Georgia in the end because of the amount of blue chip stars that are still considering Georgia and the amount of scholarships that remain for Georgia to offer. Henderson said this about signing with the Dawgs.

"It makes me nervous if couldn't go," he said. "I just try not to think about it. when (Georgia) first asked me to come, they asked me, ‘do you want to commit?' and I did.  And then (Georgia) were telling me ‘we are only going to recruit two more receiver-type/db-type.'"

But Henderson made it clear that he is committed to Georgia and one reason that he is committed to the Dawgs is because of Mark Richt. "You've seen how he's come in and just how Georgia football has changed.

But Henderson said that in Buford, his hometown, the Dawgs are a big deal. "I have always been a Georgia fan, always. Around here you root for Georgia," he ended.
