Southeast Raleigh (Raleigh, N.C.) quarterback Gabe Henderson has enjoyed an active Evaluation period, but for now the 6-0, 180-pound junior waits to see what programs will come through with official offers. Henderson, who totaled 2,900 yards (2,300 passing and 600 rushing) and 38 touchdowns (27 passing, 11 rushing) as a junior, currently holds the one official offer from Kent State.

“Louisville coaches came to my school two days ago. My coach said Louisville is real high on me,” Henderson said. “The whole N.C. State football staff, except for Coach O’Brien and Coach Archer, came to evaluate me and my teammate, Kendall Moore. ECU is supposed to come and see me throw on Monday. My coach said Tennessee is coming down. I’m going to UVa next Saturday for a visit and then for the Nike Camp.”

Virginia Tech, a program Henderson became very high on after a February 28th visit, continues to evaluate the Tar Heel state standout.

“Coach O’Cain said he was coming down pretty soon to see me throw,” Henderson said. “I talk to Coach O’Cain about every week. We talk about everything, really. He said he wants me. I like him because he is a straight-up guy.”

Henderson plans on attending camp at Virginia Tech and Maryland this summer. He may attend UVa’s summer camp as well, but he is not sure of those plans. He does know that he will be in Charlottesville next Saturday for an unofficial visit and then on Sunday for a Nike Camp.

“I’ll probably know next Saturday if they are going to offer me,” Henderson said of UVa. His teammate, linebacker Kendall Moore, plans to visit UVa as well next weekend.

Henderson added, “I’d say both Virginia schools are really high on my list. I’m not cancelling out any other schools, though.”

While Henderson has serious interest in the Hokies and the Cavaliers, he is open to all schools at this point. He has previously expressed an interest in committing during the spring or summer, so an early decision is possible if the right offer comes along.

“I’m waiting to see who comes in,” Henderson said. “I’m looking through all options.”

Recruiting aside, Henderson has been working hard this off-season, preparing for camps and combines as well as his senior season. Last season, he led Southeast Raleigh to its first ever conference championship.
