Zaycoven Henderson has quickly become a wanted man.

After winning the Defensive Line MVP at the Next Level Athlete Texas Top 100 two weeks ago, the 6-foot-2, 290-pound junior defensive tackle has received multiple junior day invitations and two offers, the second of which came from Baylor, Henderson confirmed via text with at 9:16 a.m. Monday.

Henderson already held an Oklahoma offer and attended the Sooners’ junior day this past weekend. SMU invited Henderson to its Feb. 16 junior day.

Henderson had a breakout 2012 season with 48 tackles, 10 for loss, and two sacks as he played a key role on Longview’s defensive line, which was perhaps the Lobos’ strongest unit. Longview went 9-4 with a Class 5A Division II Region II semifinal appearance.

Henderson isn’t the only junior Lobo with an Oklahoma offer. Receiver Dorian Leonard, who definitely looks the part of a Big 12-caliber pass-catcher at 6-foot-4, 200 pounds, also has an offer from the Sooners. Henderson and Leonard joined teammates Stephan Maxey (safety) and Travin Howard (safety) on the Oklahoma junior day trip this past weekend.
