Henderson is still looking for a home

It's rare that a talented corner prospect like CCSF CB John Mark Henderson (5-11, 190) is still around after signing day, but after things fell through with a few of the schools he was being pursued by that's exactly what's happened. JCFootball.com caught up with the gifted defender on Wednesday and he updated us on what happened and where things stand right now...

"Kansas State, New Mexico State and San Diego State were all on me, but all of those coaching staffs got fired," Henderson told JCFootball.com. "I had offers from Temple and Houston, but they both wouldn't accept some of my credits, so they had to pull my offers so now I'm basically waiting and looking for a spot."

Henderson was a two-year starter for CCSF and managed to post 55 tackles, 17 passes defensed and one interception during his time with the Rams.

"We usually started five DBs, so I mainly played the nickel over the slot," Henderson said. "I played some outside, so I can do whatever a team needs me to do.

"I can be physical and I can turn and run with guys because of my speed (4.46) and there were a couple of times I switched to safety and closer to the box because I was a hitter."

Now, Henderson's focus is strictly on taking classes, keeping himself in shape and marketing himself to schools looking for a corner.

"Basically it was frustrating, but it happened so I have to keep looking," Henderson said. "I've already got my AA degree, so I can leave at any time, but I am taking more classes to get a jump on my degree and so I can make sure that what happened to me before won't happen to me this time around."

Henderson can leave at any time and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
