I hope so, that would be hilarious. Although, this guy has "future Maurice Clarett", ego-wise, written ALL over him. He would probably fit right in at USC and with LK. Incredible talent, but I am glad UGA wouldn't touch him with a 10-ft pole.

The best part is LK putting on a happy face and telling everyone that it will all be ok, some of the recruits seem to be buying it, but aren't paying attention to the fact that if SH backs out, USC won't be able to replace him because of the scholly limits...same thing with transfers. Those schollys are gone, not just freed up.

According to ESPN's Todd McShay on College Football Live, USC has announced they have released Henderson from his Letter of Intent with no limitations. HE can sign anywhere and play this fall.

Yeah, I got an text alert about that a little while ago. Not surprising at all. He will go to Miami, from what I hear. He just needs to be somewhere he can thug out and rap for his college career, it is the logical choice. :)

Why all the hate for him? All the articles I've read he seemed like a smart kid that waited and waited because he was hoping the NCAA hearing would come to an end. Do we really have people labeling him a thug for that and saying they don't want the top O-Lineman in the nation? Does he have a criminal background or something I'm not aware of?

It isn't because he waited on his decision, its because of how he handled his recruitment. Very "high-profile", basically went to USC because he met Snoop and he seems more concerned with launching his "rap career" than football. So does his dad, *ahem*. I don't know all the details, since UGA never gave him a look really, but I know enough to know that this kid is very unlikely to live up to his potential and is probably going to be a "cancer" in the locker room, not a leader or motivating force.

No he doesn't have a criminal record...yet. That pretty much sums up the vibe this kid's recruitment gave me.

His dad is more concerned over launching HIS OWN rap career. Seantrel seems like a nice kid, but his dad is a total ass hat and is the reason for most all of this.

I for one was not real happy with Henderson, because he never seemed like he really wanted to be at SC. I don't care how good a guy is, if your heart is not in it, go some place where you will be happy. I've heard Ohio St and Miami were always higher on his list that SC.

Wasn't Lane Kiffin trying to hook this kids dad up with Snoop Dogg?

BTW, he did go to Miami.
USC's loss is Miami's gain
By Jamie Newberg

The roller-coaster ride for Seantrel Henderson (Saint Paul, Minn./Cretin-Derham) appears to finally be over. On Friday, Sean Henderson, who is the father of the five-star offensive tackle prospect, confirmed that his son will sign with Miami. Henderson was released from his letter of intent with USC on Tuesday.

"Seantrel is definitely going to Miami. It is 100 percent," said Sean Henderson. "We are not sure when he will actually sign [his letter of intent], but he will do that sometime before he reports on Aug. 3."

The No. 8 overall prospect in the ESPNU 150 is a huge piece for Miami coach Randy Shannon and his program. Henderson was the top-rated prospect at a highly coveted position, and helps the Hurricanes fill a glaring need across the offensive front. The 6-foot-8, 300-pounder has a great body, long arms and super feet. He plays with very good balance and has a nice base. Henderson can slide in pass pro and uses those long arms to keep rushers at bay. He engulfs defenders while run blocking and is very good on the move because he's so big and athletic.

Like all true freshmen, Henderson will have to adjust to the speed of the game, as well as offensive coordinator Mark Whipple's playbook and blocking schemes in Coral Gables, Fla. He also needs polish and development before he is a dominant left tackle at the next level.

Prior to bringing in Henderson, Miami's 2010 recruiting class was ranked No. 13 in the country. By adding the elite left tackle, the Hurricanes move to No. 11 and bump Georgia and Penn State down a spot. USC remains at No. 7 because its class is still loaded with early-impact players. Miami's class was not overwhelming to begin with, which is why getting Henderson does not warrant as big of a jump as one might think.

He joins an already-stout Miami offensive line class that includes ESPNU 150 offensive lineman Brandon Linder (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas). Linder is a special four-star talent who's versatile enough to play anywhere along the offensive front. While he wants to play tackle, many feel he will slide inside and become a center.

Other potential tackle prospects in the group are Tavadis Glen (Jacksonville, Fla./Raines), Jermaine Barton (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas) and Malcolm Bunche (Newark, Del./Milford Academy). Glen and Barton are raw and very athletic big men, while Bunche comes to the Hurricanes via the prep school route. Then you have Jonathan Feliciano (Davie, Fla./Western) and Shane McDermott (Lake Worth, Fla./Palm Beach), who will both likely end up playing on the inside.

The Henderson signing gives Miami a bona fide big-time left tackle, great depth at a very important position and someone to help Shannon & Co. in future recruiting.

The game of football continues to evolve, but it's still won and lost in the trenches. This offensive line class could turn into the cornerstone of Miami football.

Huge pickup for the Canes, hopefully he will try to spend more time in the weight room and learning the playbook than trying to hang out at Circle House. :think:
