The Tuesday evening addition of Fort Worth All Saints defensive end Max Cummins didn’t stop the Texas Longhorns staff from setting up an official visit for Georgia Military College defensive end Brandon Henderson on Thursday, according to Horns247.

The 6’5, 260-pounder will make his way to Austin this weekend in hopes of picking up an offer from the Longhorns.

Last weekend, Henderson was in Athens with similar hopes, but left without an offer from Georgia. He’s also taken an official visit to East Carolina, which is perceived as the leader since the Pirates are one of 12 schools to offer the South Carolina native.

Other offers include Bowling Green, Charlotte, Houston, Kansas, and Toledo.

With defensive end commit Taquon Graham still set to visit Oklahoma this weekend and TCU before National Signing Day, Texas needs a back-up plan in case the Temple product decides to flip to the Sooners or the Horned Frogs and it appears that Henderson is that player at the moment.

Considered as a consensus two-star prospect, Henderson is ranked as the No 219 junior college defensive end and the No. 17 junior college weak-side defensive end, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
