Henderson, Summit Wrap Up Spring Practice

Bryson Henderson was busy Tuesday. First, the 6-5, 250-pound defensive lineman played in Mansfield Summit High School's spring game and then he went shopping at Men's Warehouse for a tuxedo for Saturday night's prom.

"Yes sir, I got a good looking tux for Saturday, black and orange," answered Henderson when asked about his tuxedo shopping. "Not a Halloween look, not a bright orange, but a lighter orange."

Either way, black and orange might sound good and it does match the colors of the school with the most recent scholarship offer to Henderson. The defensive tackle/defensive end can play inside or outside for Summit and does either well.

As a junior, he had 75 total tackles with 22 of those being of the unassisted variety. He also had 10 sacks, picked off a deflected pass and recovered a fumble.

Henderson was pleased with his play in Summit's spring game. "Yes, I played just before I went out to find a tux," said Henderson.

"There were a lot of college coaches there but I didn't get to talk to any of them after the game. I played okay early but came back and I got a lot of action and made a lot of tackles. I thought I played all right," he said.

As for his recruiting, Henderson said, "Oklahoma State did offer and that was good. I like them, I like the Oklahoma schools. This summer I am going to some camps. My coach is going to take me to a Texas Tech camp at Lancaster (High School). I know I will look at going to some other camps. I know I want to major in Broadcasting. I'm not really sold on anybody yet and I'm just looking for the best program for me."

Henderson has confirmed offers from OSU, Houston, Purdue, TCU, Tulsa and Utah State. He has also been recruited by Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Baylor.
