As expected, Seantrel Henderson heading to the Hurricanes

LeBron James isn’t the only big name making South Florida his new sports home for the next few years.

According to the New York Times, and as widely expected, former USC signee Seantrel Henderson has decided to become a member of the Miami Hurricanes.  Henderson’s father confirmed the move to the Times.

Henderson, arguably the top player in the 2010 recruiting class, was given an unconditional release from his USC Letter of Intent on July 6.  Henderson will reportedly arrive in Miami on Aug. 3 and, according to his father, is academically qualified.

The official move to Coral Gables is the culmination of weeks of speculation and rumors that Henderson’s feet were getting cold due to sanctions handed down on the Trojans by the NCAA, and that he was leaning toward a move to the Hurricanes.

    Seantrel and Puff Seany will have a great seat to watch “boring” Jim Tressel pick apart the Canes’ D with his playcalling.

    I have been feverishly checking CFT on the hour to see if this was going to happen – Welcome to the U !!!!!!!!!!

    Count me among the thrilled. This should speed up the return of the Canes to the team they should be.

    Good luck to him! I would have loved to see his big butt in Scarlet and Grey but it is not to be. I will still be a rabid insane Buckeye fan and get through this with the team we have!!! See you in the Shoe!!!

    I think you need to look at the “U” academic standing before you open your mouth

    ‘Coal’ Gables sounds like a beautiful place in Florida [or West Virginia, for that matter] for a university. However, The ‘U’ is in CORAL Gables.
    KM, from the home of the Longhorns, aka ‘Astin’, Texas

    Taylor, this post is woefully incomplete without reminding your readers that Sean was landed by the U’s best recruiting coordinator – NCAA CoI Chair, Paul Dee. Don’t believe for a moment that corruption is not involved in Sean’s delivery to Miami.

    I always love how Notre Yawn fans always revert to academic arguments to make themselves feel better since they have been totally irrelevant on the field for about 30 years

    Trojanman you’re projecting Trojan philosophy onto others. Believe it or not, not all programs are as slimy as SCum. Time to pay the piper.

    SO what job did Daddy Henderson receive in Miami?

  12. TLNDMA says: Jul 9, 2010 6:47 PM

    AZ BUCK, you do what you need and CAN do.
    Yeah we’ve been down, you now how it feels I know, remember John Cooper? We’re all (ND fans) feeling pretty chipper right now. See ya in a BCS game soon. Deal?

  13. oxking says: Jul 9, 2010 7:38 PM

    I have a feeling daddy henderson will cause more trouble than it’s worth. many a 5 star has gone bust.
    And, don’t forget the “U” niversity of Florida is in Gainesville.

  14. Hovenaut says: Jul 9, 2010 7:59 PM

    No hard feeling Seantrel. You and Dad come out to Columbus for a visit on 9/11. Then head back to South Beach after getting your asses handed to you.
    Did Lebron talk to this kid too?
    Remember all this when he’s an NFL bust.

    Well; all the haters of the University of Miami continues. I would first like to know of the peopple that have left a message on here played football at a winning division 1 program(and actually played) and who played in the NFL?
    S.H. was lied to in regards to the sanctions; if you are lied to wouldn’t you leave?
    Obviously the person that made the comment about the academics at the “U” did not go to a real college becasue if you did you would be smart enought to know the academic standards to get in are quit high. Keep on hating; especially after we win it all! We will see you nut fans soon; then we will see how you do against the Iowa Hawkeyes!

    I think people on both sides of the arguments confuse the athletic department with the overall student population. They also confuse being admitted to graduating.
    At many of these large universities the athletic dept. graduation rate, though not great, doesn’t differ that much from the overall student population. At some it differs greatly.
    Certain things cannot be denied. For athletes, some schools are tougher to get into . Some schools graduate a higher % of their athletes than others. If you check the data, you will see, these latter two points do not apply to Buckeyes, Hurricanes and certainly not Trojans.
