Henderson Garnering Interest

2011 offesnive tackle prospect Ramsey Henderson checks in with TSR to talk Terps.

Class of 2011 offensive tackle Ramsey Henderson does not yet hold a scholarship offer, but the Washington, D.C. product has begun to draw interest from several programs.  

“Right now, so far I’ve heard from New Hampshire, East Carolina, Marshall, University of Alabama-Birmingham. I’ve talked to Maryland a little bit and a couple other schools,” said the Woodson HS lineman.  

In his contact with Maryland, Henderson has had the opportunity to talk to Assistant Head Coach/Offensive Coordinator James Franklin.

Franklin insisted that if the offensive tackle may still receive a scholarship offer from the Terps if he continues to work hard, said Henderson.  He also said that Franklin was pleased with him slimming down from 340 to 308 pounds.  Through talking with Franklin, Henderson has developed an interest in Maryland.

“I like the intensity and the education that Maryland provides,” said the 6-foot-7 lineman, who added that location of schools is not a factor for him.  “And when it comes to game time it’s just a different atmosphere, so I like that.”

Henderson believes he is the kind of player that would enjoy an intense game day atmosphere.

“I am a player that is ready for game time when the lights are on,” said Henderson.  “I just like to be in the moment of the game.  When I put on the pads it’s just a whole different me.  I’m a calm guy when I’m in the classroom, but when I’m on the field it’s just a different me.  I like to be in control.”

Henderson has placed importance on taking time to hone his skills to get ready for playing at the next level.

“I am a player that is getting ready for the next level that just wants to better myself as a player,” he said.  “You just have to always work hard.  It’s like there’s always room for improvement, and even if you’re fortunate enough to make the next level, you have to keep working hard and improving.”

Henderson visited Marshall and East Carolina during the spring, but has yet to schedule visits for the summer or fall.
