Seantrel Henderson in Miami’s doghouse again

Though he was one of the nation’s top football recruits in 2010, Miami tackle Seantrel Henderson hasn’t had it easy at the collegiate level.

Since switching to the Canes from USC, Henderson has been linked to a reported suspension — although back surgery sidelined the mammoth tackle against Maryland anyway — and has been limited with injuries. Heading into the 2012 season, Henderson is  apparently, once again, not in the good graces of head coach Al Golden.

Golden announced after practice today that Henderson, as well as cornerback Keion Payne and linebacker Kelvin Cain, were suspended through the weekend for violation of team rules, but would return early next week.

“It is disappointing,” Golden said. “I think it’s disappointing for the team to be honest with you. You can’t just weed all of the time. If you’re just constantly weeding and that’s the problem. When you’re trying to improve the program and move forward, you can’t just weed the program. You’ve got to water your garden, too.

Henderson is listed as the team’s backup offensive tackle heading into spring practice. Cain, who was also part of that group of six Hurricanes reportedly suspended for the team’s 2011 season opener, was listed as the starting linebacker on the latest depth chart and finished last year with 20 tackles and an interception returned for a touchdown.

    Any significance to him using a form of the word “weed” 3 times?

    I had the same thought….

    Golden is stand up, the second stand up character coach in a row for UM.

    Looking forward to watching his product.

    Henderson will be a bust in the NFL. Health problems, character issues, the inability to start despite being the #1 recruit in the country. He would have been better signing with the Gophers where is family could have had a more positive impact on his development.

    Family could have been the beginning for his trouble, one never can tell.

    Decision day will forever the highlight of this kids football career. Too bad. If he would’ve had his head on straight from the start, he probably could have been great. I smell greedy parents.

    What a shocker. This kid’s recruitment spelled trouble from Day One. All along he came off as yet another kid believing his own hype, without a hint of humility – and invariably, those are always the ones who turn out to be the biggest troublemakers later on.

    Daddy and entitlement ruined this kids future.

    He probably wont even get a sniff from the NFL if he continues with the nonsense.

    My question is why the NCAA has not “beat down” the “U” over these seemingly endless recruiting issues. Yes @ University of Miami.

    The leader of the pack was the late Athletic Director “Paul Dee”. It pains me as an USC alumnus to see this “special treatment”.

    It is that kind hypocrisy and the inability to use a “precedent” to cite this kind of “behavior” to say the least.
