Leander Athlete Plans Spring Game Visit

2011 prospect, Jon Henderson (Leander HS), is easily one of the most talented athletes in the state of Texas. In 2009, Henderson earned first-team all-district honors at wide receiver after tallying 45 receptions for 719 yards and 10 touchdowns. A&M was the first school to offer Henderson and he will make his second trip out to Aggieland this year to watch the Aggies annual Maroon & White game.

2011 prospect, Jon Henderson (Leander HS), is easily one of the most talented athletes in the state of Texas. In 2009, Henderson earned first-team all-district honors at wide receiver after tallying 45 receptions for 719 yards and 10 touchdowns. He also rushed 54 times for 278 yards and three scores and added a kickoff return touchdown. A&M was the first school to offer Henderson and the 5-foot-9, 185-pound athlete will make his second trip out to College Station this year on April 17th to watch the Aggies annual Maroon & White game.

"I'll be up for the A&M spring game in two weeks. I'm looking forward to getting back up there," said Henderson.

The Leander standout has made the trip up to Aggieland numerous times, taking in a junior day in February and attending a couple of home games in the fall, so he is familiar with the campus. Henderson and his area recruiter have been in contact over the past few weeks and Jon plans on taking a closer look at the A&M personnel on the 17th.

"Nick Toth is my area recruiter and we have been exchanging some emails. I like him, he is a cool guy. I want to spend some more time with the coaches and players. I also want to watch them scrimmage and see what they are going to look like next year. I want to get more of a feel for it now that they have offered me."

While getting noticed on the gridiron, Henderson is also getting attention on the baseball field as well. Henderson wants to play both sports in college and Texas A&M seems to be entertaining the idea.

"I play left field and I'm the leadoff hitter," Henderson stated. "I haven't had the chance to talk to Coach Childress but he's been to a couple of my games. The conversation has come up and I've talked to A&M about it but nothing is set yet."

At the moment Henderson has A&M at the top of his list with Baylor at a distant second. Although Henderson would like to wait until after the spring to make his decision, he isn't ruling out jumping on board with A&M in two weeks.

"A&M has been the most interested in me so they are my #1," said Henderson. "I want to play this thing out at least until the end of spring ball, but I'm not ruling out the possibility of committing when I come up there. That could happen."

Waco, Texas is the next stop for Jonathan. This will be his first visit to Baylor's campus and he isn't sure what to expect. The Bears are his only other offer at the moment.

"I have plans to visit Baylor next weekend. It's going to be different because I haven't spoken to them in a while or even visited their campus."
