Longview’s Zaycoven Henderson Receives More Invitations
Longview junior defensive tackle Zaycoven Henderson already has three offers and is receiving more attention from college programs.
The 6-foot-2, 290-pounder, who holds Baylor, Oklahoma, and TCU offers, told ETSN.fm late Tuesday night that Texas A&M has invited him to a March 2 junior day. He also has invitations to junior days at Texas (Feb. 23), Texas (Feb. 23), and TCU (Feb. 24).
Henderson, who had 48 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, and two sacks in a breakout 2012 campaign for the 9-4 Lobos, said he probably won’t be able to attend either of the Feb. 23 junior days, but hopes to make it to the TCU and Texas A&M events.
Henderson also received an invitation to the March 17 Rivals/UnderArmour Combine, which will be at Cedar Hill High School. He said fellow Longview junior Dorian Leonard, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound receiver who also has an Oklahoma offer, has been invited to the camp as well.
Henderson was not pleased with the departure of defensive line coach Jackie Shipp from the Oklahoma staff, a move reported Tuesday by various outlets.
Whitehouse junior linebacker Reggie Long (6-1, 210) — who has numerous junior day invitations, including the latest from North Texas and Texas State — has also received a Rivals/UnderArmour Combine invitation.
Henderson, who plays post on Longview’s basketball team, and the Lobos will play Mesquite Horn at 7 p.m. Friday at Tyler Lee’s Lee Varsity Gym for the second-place spot from District 12-5A.
