Longview’s Zaycoven Henderson Commits to TCU
Longview junior defensive tackle Zaycoven Henderson confirmed with ETSN.fm early Sunday evening that he committed to TCU during a junior day trip this weekend.
Henderson, a 6-foot-2, 290-pounder, has been one of East Texas' most sought after recruits in the 2014 class in recent weeks, receiving seven offers in a short period of time.
Other than the Horned Frogs, Henderson has offers from Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, SMU, and Texas Tech. Ole Miss was the latest to offer Henderson, who said Rebels defensive line coach Chris Kiffin offered him Thursday. That was the third consecutive day Henderson received an offer. Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury offered him the day prior to the Ole Miss offer, while Oklahoma State offered Henderson the day before that.
Henderson had a breakout junior season. He started the year playing more on the offensive line, but quickly became a fixture on Longview's deep and talented defensive front. Playing inside, Henderson had 48 tackles, 10 for loss, and two sacks. At times, he was the best player on the field in the Lobos' third-round playoff loss to Austin Westlake, which he harassed for eight tackles, including three for loss.
Henderson saw his recruiting attention sharply increase after winning Defensive Line MVP honors at a Next Level Athlete Texas Top 100 camp in January.
