Henderson names his top five

Navarro (TX) Junior College's Cameron Henderson has reduced his final list of schools down to five and now he is ready to start taking his visits. So what advantage might Iowa State have if they made the list?

"I already know Coach Rhoads very well because I played for him at Auburn before I left for Navarro," said Henderson. "Then when I ended up at Navarro, he and staff started talking to me last spring."

The 6-foot-2, 250-pound defensive end has received many offers over the past year but he recently told CSR that he has cut his list to five.

"I'm down to Arizona, South Florida, Iowa State, Mississippi State, and Central Florida."

Considering the fact that Henderson will be a December graduate he will be having a very busy schedule during the upcoming month.

"I'm taking my first visit this weekend to Arizona," said Henderson. "Then the next weekend I will be visiting Iowa State and then the weekend after that I'm going to visit both Central and South Florida. I want to visit Mississippi State but I haven't been able to set that one up yet."

So what is Cameron's relationship like with Coach Rhoads?

"The fact that I know him and really like him is really important," he said. "He recruited me at Auburn and has been in my house and been to my school. I knew he would do good at Iowa State because he is a real good coach and he is someone that I definitely trust."

Cameron has nine sacks and enjoyed having some of the Iowa State coaches attend one of his games.

"They came about two months ago and I got to speak with Coach Bray," said Henderson. "He told me that he really likes how I rush the passer and that if I chose Iowa State that I would have a real good chance of coming in and starting right away."

So does Cameron have a timeline for making a final decision?

"I want to take all my decisions and see how I feel about the school and how I bond with the coaches first before I do anything else," he said. "Then I will probably make my final decision a little bit before New Year's Day."
