The 6-foot-3, 270-pounder picked up offers from Oklahoma and Baylor early in the process and TCU soon followed. He recently added offers from Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, SMU and most recently Ole Miss. Henderson won defensive line MVP honors at the Next Level Athlete Camp in Houston last month.
Henderson, who once favored Oklahoma, said TCU's stability on the coaching staff was among the key factors he decided to be a Horned Frog on Sunday. It's a factor he says no other program could match.
"Well, the coaching stability has been here for years; 16, 17 years and they're not leaving," he said. "I just didn't want to make a commitment where I'm trying to always learn about new coaches and it's not going to be stable. I feel that TCU was the place for me."
Academics are also a high priority for Henderson, which is why TCU's small classes were another benefit because he can get more attention with fewer students in the classroom.
"It's real small, me and the teacher can do more one-on-one instead of there being 300 or 400 students in a class," he said. "At TCU there are only 20 students in a class so that's real good too. I like that."
Finally, Henderson said TCU's style of defense also convinced him to become a Frog.
"It's the same thing Longview does," he said.
