Scouting Report

Evaluated 04/10/2024

Cooper Petagna National Recruiting Analyst

Verified at 5-foot-9 plus and 190-pounds in February of 2024, Henderson possesses the growth potential to add some additional weight to an already collegiate ready frame. A sudden runner that demonstrates the ability to play in both a power or zone scheme, the Alabama native exhibits excellent short area burst and separation quickness at the second level to create space between defenders. Plays with good play strength and physicality, plus shows the ability to consistently play through contact. Has a knack for finding hidden yardage between the tackles, utilizing patience and contact balance but also possesses the elusiveness and long speed to create explosive plays in the open field. An extremely productive rusher with an uncanny combination of vision, short area quickness, and burst between the tackles, Henderson projects as a high level multi-year starter at a Power Four program with the ability to contribute sooner rather than later in an early down role.
