Henderson considers himself a perfectionist but learned at the MSU camp that you don't have to be a perfectionist all the time to be successful.

"I learned to not try to be so perfect all the time," he said. "That is my biggest problem, trying to be perfect all of the time. But I can't help it because I want to do everything right."

According to Henderson, Mississippi State offensive line coach John Hevesy was impressed with what he saw from the talented lineman.

"He liked my footwork and I think my strength," said Henderson.

Henderson also came away impressed with what he saw from Mississippi State.

"I have been to Mississippi State quite a few times," said Henderson. "It just feels like home. It feels like I am at my own home. I love Mississippi State."

But there is one other school that he loves even more, Louisiana Tech, a school that he recently committed to.

Henderson talked about his commitment.

"La Tech offered me and I committed there last week," said Henderson, who is also being recruited by Kentucky, Louisiana-Monroe, Memphis, Mississippi State, South Alabama and Tulane. "I like the coaches, the school. The school is not too big or too small. It is walking distance everywhere. The coaches have been talking to my mom for the last couple of months and she likes them. And she is a very big part of the decision. If my momma likes them, then I like them."
