Tennessee’s second signee could be a very valuable asset.
Cornerback Desmond “D.J.” Henderson sent in his scholarship papers on Wednesday, the first day that junior-college, mid-term enrollees could do so. Henderson could be a key addition as the Vols may have to replace junior cornerback Cameron Sutton, who could opt to forgo his final season of eligibility for the NFL draft.
The 5-foot-11, 173-pound cornerback committed to Tennessee in November. Florida made a last push for Henderson, who is from Dodge City Junior College (Dodge City, Kansas). However, Henderson stayed true to his Tennessee commitment, especially after an official visit to Knoxville, Tenn. in November.
Tennessee is expecting signed scholarship papers from Henderson’s teammate, receiver Jeff George.
The Vols received signed scholarship papers from Alexis Johnson from Fort Scott (Kansas) Community College earlier Wednesday.
