Top prospect to visit Gamecocks in July

Offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson, regarded by many scouts as the nation’s best college prospect, is planning a swing through South Carolina in July and will visit South Carolina and Clemson, according to Columbia recruiting expert Phil Kornblut.

Henderson, who is 6-foot-8 and 325 pounds, is from St. Paul, Minn., and has offers from just about every major program, including the likes of Ohio State, Southern Cal and Florida.

He told Kornblut that he will take all his visits in July and August, and that the Gamecocks in particular have stirred his interest.

While Clemson has also offered, Henderson said he hasn’t heard much from the Tigers.

Henderson said he doesn’t have a short list of favorites yet. So what kind of school is he looking for?

“Just a place I'm comfortable at and people I’m comfortable around,” he said.
