New Name on Henderson's List

Zay Henderson

The talented defensive lineman receives another major Junior Day invite...

Zaycoven Henderson, a 6-foot-3, 270-pound defensive tackle from Longview (TX) high informed Scout.com on Wednesday morning he had got another major invite.

"I just got invited to the University of Texas Junior Day," Henderson stated. "I will be going down on the 10th (February) or the 23rd."

"Me and Dorian (Leonard) both got invited. I think we are planning on going down on the 10th."

Texas was not a school that Henderson mentioned in his last update, but does have an interest in the Longhorns and "Yeah, its alright," Henderson said with a laugh when asked if he was pleased to get the in-state interest.

Henderson has already been offered by Oklahoma and has plans to attend its Junior Day this weekend. He has also been invited to Junior Day at SMU.

He would still like to hear more from SEC programs like Texas A&M, LSU and Alabama.

Film Breakdown: Athletic enough to play defensive end for Longview (5A) and is listed at 6'3, 270, so off the top you know that he can move well for his size. He plays with a good pad level and gets off of his blocks. He is strong up top and explosive when closing on the ball carriers. He is a weapon on defense, but has the leverage and strength to play offensive line as well. A prospect to watch for the class of 2014.
