Henderson Hauls In North Texas Offer

Dodge City CB Desmond Henderson (6-0, 176) received an offer from a Sun Belt program this week...

Henderson informed JCFootball.com that he has received an offer from North Texas.

The Mean Green joins Utah State in offering the talented corner.

As a freshman last season, Henderson locked down his side of the field, tying for the team-lead with eight pass breakups to go along with 46 tackles and 5.5 tackles-for-loss.

"I'm a good tackler with great ball skills," Henderson said when asked what he does best on the football field. "I feel like I am great in pursuit and good in man-coverage and great in zone-coverage.

"One thing I am working on this offseason, more than anything, is being more physical at the line of scrimmage."

As a prep, Henderson enjoyed a solid prep career at James F. Byrnes High School in Lyman, South Carolina, but he was unable to qualify, so he headed to a program that he felt could get him ready for the next level.

"I've always heard that the Jayhawk Conference was one of the top conferences in the nation and I wanted to take on a good challenge," Henderson noted.

Henderson is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
