It seems that the closer that national signing day (February 1) gets, the more difficult the final college decision for DuPont Manual High School's Aundre Henderson becomes.

Since verbally committing to Minnesota during the summer, the 6-foot-4, 275-pound defensive tackle has started to rethink his decision and spent the weekend making an official visit with his hometown Cardinals.

"It was a good visit," said Henderson, who roomed with fellow Derby City prospect Corey Peters of Central High School while on his visit. "I got to hang out with the players a lot."

While he has made numerous unofficial visits with U of L, Henderson said that his latest experience has pulled Bobby Petrino's program even closer to Minnesota.

"It's about even right now, but if I had to say today it would still be Minnesota," explained Henderson, who will take an official trip to Kentucky this coming weekend.

Part of what has come into play is the distance factor.

"I've just started to think about it more and I'm not sure that I want to be that far from home," said the three-star defensive tackle prospect.

He also added that as his eventual college destination becomes a more difficult decision, that his final choice is still a ways from being made.

"It's going to take awhile. There's a lot to think about."
