D.J. Henderson details 1st Vols visit

Another Tennessee target made his first-ever visit to Rocky Top over the weekend. See what Scout four-star cornerback D.J. Henderson told InsideTennessee about the visit.

D.J. Henderson had never in his life been to Knoxville until last weekend.

The Dodge City (Kan.) Community College sophomore let Tennessee pick up the tab on his Rocky Top tour with an official visit to the school at which he's committed, seeing the Volunteers get to 8-4 by taking down Vanderbilt 53-28.

Until Sunday's news of four-star JUCO defensive end Jonathan Kongbo's declaration, Henderson had been the last 2016 class prospect to commit to Tennessee as the Palmetto State native pledged to the Orange & White back on Sept. 17. The pair make up two of Tennessee's four-star commitments.

Henderson has 43 tackles, 11 pass breakups and two interceptions this fall, which led to his being named first-team All-Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference.

The Conquistadors (9-2) take on Snow College in the Salt City Bowl in Hutchinson, Kansas, on Dec. 5.

The 6-foot, 175-pounder that ranks as the Scout No. 3 JUCO corner in the nation hopes to wear No. 4 at Tennessee and plans to move to Knoxville in January.
