Henderson, out of Pebblebrook HS in Mableton, Georgia, was committed to Tennessee from last summer through early December. In December he re-opened his recruitment. Henderson's final decision came down to traditional national power Nebraska and Kentucky.
On signing day Phillips was asked about Henderson's recruitment.
Phillips said, "Khalid Henderson was a guy that we were sitting there waiting, when he became available, Coach Minter had a chance to go down and visit with him, and he liked the look in his eyes, liked him physically -- and I say "physically" because you better like 'em physically first, you know, because -- it's just like when I met my wife, I saw her from a distance, I better like what I saw first."
