Tom Herman and his staff are looking to have a say in the long-term recruitment of recent Oklahoma Sooners 2019 wide receiver commit Arjei Henderson, as the Texas Longhorns finally extended an offer on Monday.
A four-star prospect, Henderson exploded onto the scene after impressing with 100 receptions for 1,401 yards and 18 touchdowns as a sophomore at Richmond Travis, but soon thereafter announced his commitment to Bob Stoops and the Sooners at the same time as Theo Wease Jr.; another in-state 2019 pass catcher.
As expected, though, Henderson’s early pledge hasn’t deterred outside interest. Since his February 19 commitment, Henderson has seen offers flood in from Oregon, Arizona State, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Ohio State, Florida State, Louisville, Michigan State, Oregon State and now, Texas.
With nearly two years before Henderson is required to sign his national letter of intent, expect the ‘Horns to try and emerge as a power player in his recruitment and seek a flip.
To date, Henderson holds 27 offers and along with the above noted invitations are offers from USC, Washington, Baylor, Georgia, Houston, Louisville, Ole Miss, TCU and Texas A&M, among others.
