Seantrel Henderson Attends Gopher BB Game

Seantrel Henderson, a 6-foot-8, 338-pound tackle from Cretin Derham Hall who is USA Today's Offensive Player of the Year, attended the Minnesota basketball game Saturday. He and his father, Sean, visited the Gopher locker room along with Minnesota head coach Tim Brewster and recruiting coordinator Dan Berezowitz. The Gophers are hoping that they can convince the talented tackle to stay home.

Seantrel Henderson helped lead the Raiders to a 14-0 mark this season, defeating Eden Prairie 16-5 in the Prep Bowl in the Class AAAAA title game. He was named Associated Press Player of the Year and was named All-State by the St. Paul Pioneer Press and Minnesota Vikings and was selected as All-Metro by the Minneapolis Star Tribune and Kare-11 TV.

Henderson was one of seven finalists for the U.S. Army Player of the Year award and played in the U.S. Army all-American Game in San Antonio January 9th. The award was won by Mission Bay (Calif.) star Dillon Baxter, who has committed to USC.

Henderson was awarded the first Anthony Munoz Award, given to the top prep lineman in the nation.

Henderson has already visited USC, Ohio State, Florida and Notre Dame and will make his final official visit to Miami of Florida next weekend. Henderson plans to make his college choice on signing day.
