Florida DB Will End With UCLA Visit

Ashton Henderson, the 6-0, 180-pound cornerback from Tallahassee Lincoln, will join teammate, linebacker Craig Stevens, when he visits UCLA officially in January. He's sorting through his other visits until then...

Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln defensive back Ashton Henderson (6-0, 180) will join Lincoln linebacker Craig Stevens on an official visit to UCLA next month.

"I'm going to UCLA on January 21st," said Henderson. "Me and Craig are going out there. That will probably be my last trip and I'll decide after that."

Henderson has previously visited Ole Miss, taking a trip there in October, and this weekend he'll be wooed by Ron Zook and his staff when he visits Illinois.

"I haven't decided on my other two trips, but its going to come from Tennessee, Ohio State and Central Florida. Tennessee hasn't offered me yet, but Ohio State and Central Florida have," said Henderson. "I'm leaning towards leaving the state, but if I did stay in-state, I'd go with Central Florida."

Henderson said that he doesn't have a leader yet. "When I'm done with my trips, I'll be able to figure out which school fits me best. I've only been to Ole Miss and I can't judge the other schools when I haven't visited them yet. Everyone is even. I'm really not leaning towards anyone," said Henderson.

Henderson did indicate that he will take all five trips, with the other two unscheduled trips to happen in the weeks leading up to his Westwood visit. "I'm for sure taking a trip to UCLA. I'm very serious about going there. I talked to Coach (Karl) Dorrell recently and we talked for a while. I could see myself going there," said Henderson.

Henderson finished the season with 48 tackles, 19 pass breakups, seven touchdowns and three interceptions.

He holds a 3.67 GPA and received a qualifying ACT score.
