RaiderPower.com spotted both up at the Texas Tech Football Training Facility on Thursday with Red Raider director of player personnel Emmett Jones, who was the offensive coordinator at Skyline before taking the head gig at Dallas South Oak Cliff.
Henderson, listed as a three-star center by Scout, will likely play on the defensive line at Tech, but he gives the staff a lot of options due to his versatility. He's the type of player you just get on campus and find a spot for.
Just saw Dal Skyline standouts DT Joe Wallace and C Clarence Henderson visiting #TTU as I was leaving the football facility. They made it in— Jarret Johnson (@JohnsonJarret) August 7, 2015
Henderson posted his decision to commit to Tech seconds before Wallace.
Thanking God, family and friends and after careful consideration I'm proud to say that I'm committing to the University of Texas Tech!!!??????— Clarence Henderson (@dreamteambigc) August 9, 2015
Wallace is listed as a three-star prospect and ranked as the No. 10 defensive tackle in Texas, No. 44 in the nation by Scout.
With lots of prayers and thoughts with my family I have decided to commit to Texas Tech University???????? pic.twitter.com/2MDXrLbRfu— joe wallace (@99ERA_) August 9, 2015
He has been described by Scout recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks as a "human bowling ball" who possess surprising athleticism for his size at 6-foot, 315 pounds.
Henderson and Wallace gives Texas Tech three Dallas Skyline commits as three-star running back Da'Leon Ward pledged to the Red Raiders back in February. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury and staff also signed three-star Skyline safety Derrick Dixon back in the 2014 class.
Texas Tech is up to 25 total commits for the 2016 recruiting cycle, which leads the nation.
