Summer camps are all about high school prospects proving themselves to college coaches.

This was the case for Georgia outside linebacker Khalid Henderson.

Henderson participated in Tennessee's camp on June 6th, he received an offer this morning and pulled the trigger immediately.

"Yes sir I"m a Tennessee Volunteer," Henderson told InsideTennessee.com. "I spoke to Coach Dooley this morning and he gave me the offer, it didn't take long for me to decide to be a Vol For Life."

Henderson, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound athlete, apparently had a great camp at Tennessee. Previous to the Vols offer, he had garnered an offer from Arkansas State.

"I had a great camp there," Henderson said. "I had to show out a little, the Tennessee coaches couldn't get enough of me."

The fact that Tennessee is losing three senior linebackers was also a factor in his decision.

"Coach Peter Sirmon and Lance Thompson has been recruiting me," Henderson said. "I know I have a great chance to come in and play right away, with three seniors on the roster, it's a great opportunity."

Henderson also fell in love with the campus and the atmosphere in Knoxville.

"I love the campus," Henderson said. "It's great, they have the best facilities I have ever seen. I know this is the place for me."
