Henderson Hitting the Road

Lake Braddock (Burke, Va.) four-star quarterback Caleb Henderson has a busy spring ahead. TSR caught up with the nation's 7th-ranked quarterback to discuss his recent visit to College Park and his upcoming plans.

Lake Braddock (Burke, Va.) four-star quarterback Caleb Henderson has seen his recruitment take off in the past few weeks and now holds over double-digit offers. With the recent buzz, Henderson decided to open the door back up on his recruitment and he is excited to continue the process.

"I feel really lucky to have the opportunity to get recruited by all these schools," said Henderson. "I am just flattered by the attention right now and I am just pretty open to exploring my options."

One of those options could be Maryland. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound Henderson recently made the trip to Maryland for a spring practice and already plans to return for the Terps' spring game on April 12.

"I went out to Maryland for a practice about two weeks ago," said Henderson. "I thought it was a lot of fun. I really like the way they do practice, it is very fast-paced and not a lot of down time so there is a lot of energy."

Henderson hung out with Maryland head coach Randy Edsall during practice and the two talked about some possible changes in the Terps' offense.

"He [Randy Edsall] is telling me I am their top guy and they really want me there, " said Henderson. "He says they are kind of going more towards a pro-style and he thinks I would be the perfect fit there."

Henderson dropped nearly 15 pounds during this offseason and says he would even be comfortable in Maryland's current system.

"I run every day with a speed coach," said Henderson. "So I have lost a little bit of weight and I have gotten lot faster. I definitely think I could do some more zone reads and run a more spread style offense."

Henderson says he talks to the Terps' head coach about once a week and that Maryland is still in the mix.

"Maryland is a great program," said Henderson. "They are going to the Big Ten and being wanted that much by a Big Ten school is really flattering."

Henderson has a busy spring ahead. He will visit Boston College this Friday before making a trip down south to visit Tennessee, North Carolina and Miami and plans to return to Ohio State on June 9.

Henderson will be looking for some specific criteria on his visits.

"The most important factor will be how I fit in the program," said Henderson. "Other important things are my comfort with the coaches, how I feel the next four years of my life will go at that school, and a tradition of winning."

Henderson hopes to be done with recruiting before signing day.

"I want to be done with recruiting by the start of my senior season so I can focus on getting to the State Championship," said Henderson. "That is really my goal this year, but if it doesn't happen it doesn't happen. I am not going to rush into committing."
