The nation's No. 6 ranked defensive end, Oak Creek (Wisc.) High's Raymond Henderson (6-5, 255), is looking to get out of Wisconsin for college. He, though, won't bother making his decision, let alone take any trips, until he takes care of the important task in front of him.

"Hopefully our season won't be done until November, when the state championship is done," said Henderson. "I'm just focused on us winning the state title."

Henderson has already made one official visit this fall, taking a trip to Baton Rouge during LSU's rout of Mississippi State. But the other four are now on the backburner, while he focuses on his final high school season.

"It's really all about my senior year. I haven't spent a lot of time talking to college coaches because I am more focused on my season," said Henderson.

He has tentatively scheduled a visit to Tennessee at the end of the month, but hasn't guaranteed he'd take it. Other schools he has expressed interest in are Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Miami, Penn State, USC and UCLA.

When asked if the interest in UCLA is serious, Henderson said yes.

"I most likely am going to take a trip to UCLA, or maybe USC," Henderson said. "But I am definitely interested in going out there to play football."

Through six games, Oak Creek has a 6-0 record, and Henderson has already recorded 11 sacks and 65 tackles.

Henderson has a 3.4 GPA and an 18 on his ACT, qualifying him for college.
