Men of Troy set to swipe top recruit from Buckeyes?

On the field in 2009, Southern Cal took care of Ohio State in a much-hyped early-season showdown.

On the recruiting trail in 2010, the same end result could be in the offing for the services of a much-hyped high schooler.

After weeks of being considered the front-runner for one of the top recruits in the country — we were told by two separate sources over the weekend that he was headed for Columbus — reports are beginning to emerge that Seantrel Henderson will likely wind up with the Trojans.

A source close to the situation tells the Cleveland Plain Dealer that it’s expected Henderson will announce Wednesday that he’s signing with USC.

Henderson, who is the No. 1 or No. 2 player in the entire country according to most of the major recruiting services, is also reportedly considering Notre Dame, Minnesota, Florida and Miami (Fla.).

Even with this latest report — and our report, for that matter — no one outside of Henderson’s inner circle really knows what way the offensive lineman may or may not be leaning.  And no one will likely know for certain until Henderson’s televised announcement tomorrow afternoon.

    Someone might want to point out to Mr. Henderson that if he decides on USC, he is heading into an uncertain future for their football program. The Reggie Bush and other situations are not resolved and there could be serious sanctions coming down from the NCAA. Perhaps loss of scholarships, bowl games, something. The way that USC threw its basketball program under the bus, leaving innocent student-athletes punished while the guilty parties are off scot-free in the NBA might be a cautionary tale. Then the way Pete Carroll left, not while on top but after the worst season in his tenure doesn’t like the time to jump to the NFL. For more on what USC is up against, somebody tell Mr. Henderson to read this:

    Go for it dude… Kiffin is a cheater and your future is unknown. I wouldn’t trust this slimeball to watch my pet slug. Tressel, on the other hand, is a straight up guy that you will always be able to count on. We’d love to have you in the Buckeye Nation but we will be just fine without you!

    “And no one will likely know for certain until Henderson’s televised announcement tomorrow afternoon.”
    Thanks to the 4letter, recruiting is way out of control.

    So let us all get this straight… you posted a rumor that he liked the buckeyes and was going there. Now you are posting a rumor that he is not going to OSU but now he is going to USC. How about you let me know when you know. I really hate recruiting.
    Here is what I know about recruiting… USC, OSU, UF, Texas, Oklahoma, LSU, etc. will get good players. These players will then become good college players.
    Oh and Kiffin is a monster tool so if this young man wants to go and play for him then the other schools are probably better off anyways.

    for Arizona buckeye:
    Please…jealousy will get you nowhere. When Tressel can beat USC, then talk. You sure can count on him….to lose most of the big games.
