The University of Louisville football staff is well-known for finding a few hidden gems in the recruiting game, especially in states like Georgia and Alabama.
On Monday, the staff offered another under-the-radar prospect in Georgia.
Lovejoy, Ga., High School defensive end Chris Henderson said he was chatting with U of L offensive coordinator Garrick McGee when he landed the offer.
"I was surprised," said Henderson, who reports the offer from U of L is his first. "Coach McGee is recruiting me. It felt really good to get that offer."
The 6-foot-3, 240-pound Henderson said he didn't "know too much" about the U of L program but noted he will "learn about them this weekend."
Henderson will visit U of L for Saturday's Junior Day.
"I'm excited, I will be up there for Junior Day," Henderson said.
As a junior, Henderson helped lead Lovejoy to a 7-4 record. He finished the season with nine sacks to lead the team.
Henderson participated last summer in the Rising Stars All-Star game.
