2010 QB Closing In On Offers

One of North Carolina's top signal callers in the class of 2010 visited Wake Forest this past weekend. DeaconSports caught up with the talented quarterback shortly after his visit to Winston-Salem.

Gabriel Henderson is one of the state's top prospects in the class of 2010. A 6'1 quarterback out of Southeast Raleigh High School, Henderson has led Southeast Releigh to a 9-2 record.

"It's going pretty good," Henderson said of his season. "We just got done winning our second conference championship last Friday. I'm the 4th leading passer in the state. I think I have 1,977 yards passing and 25 passing touchdowns."

"I know I improved from last year but can play better," Henderson continued. "I know I've improved a lot from last year in my numbers and maturity level, both. I stand more in the pocket and make better decisions."

Thanks to his stellar junior year, colleges are showing heavy interest in the 6'1, 181-pound junior signal caller. "My coach has been telling me stuff and that offers should be coming in soon. I know Virginia Tech just wants more of my game tape and they're talking business."

A host of other schools are also highly interested in Henderson. "I'm talking to a lot of colleges right now and I should be getting my first offer soon. I talked to Virginia Tech this past Friday and they're close. I talk to Tennessee a lot and they call my coach a lot. Wake Forest, me and Kendall Moore just went to Wake this past Saturday. NC State is also in there."

According to Henderson, his trip to Wake Forest was enjoyable. "It was pretty good," he said. "I like the atmosphere. It was my first time there other than the Wake camp. I talked to the quarterbacks coach and he told me to call him again this week. I'll call him again Friday or something."

Along with Wake Forest, Henderson has taken a host of other visits. "I went to State, Carolina, Duke, and I plan on Tennessee probably when they play Kentucky. I'll probably go to Maryland this weekend."
