GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Chris Henderson committed to the hometown Hurricanes last month, but his recruitment is far from over.
The three-star cornerback from Miami Columbus visited the Gators on Monday, marking his fourth trip to Gainesville.
“I always like it when I come to Florida,” Henderson said. “I’m just comfortable here. I like how I feel at home and the coaches are real cool with me.”
The 6-foot-1, 175-pounder said UF is one of several schools still pursuing him, along with Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and West Virginia. He plans to visit all of those programs in the future despite his pledge to the Hurricanes.
“I’m solid, but I’m still looking around at other schools,” Henderson said. “How Miami’s season goes this year will determine if I stay committed or consider going to another school.”
At this stage of his recruitment, Henderson said the Gators are the biggest threat to Miami. Playing time is the deciding factor for him.
“The DB situation at Florida is good for me,” Henderson said. “I can come in and play early. Florida has also been talking to me as long as Miami.
“It’s a great feeling being recruited by Florida and coming up for visits. The DB tradition they have is big to me.”
