Henderson Enjoys Visit to Louisiana

New Mexico Military offensive lineman Reno Henderson (6'4,260) visited Louisiana Thursday and came away impressed with the New Orleans Bowl bound Ragin' Cajuns program. Go inside the Cajun Redzone to see what Henderson had to say about his to Lafayette.

The first day of the NCAA's Early Signing Period is Wednesday, December 19th and UL is expected to sign several athletes to the 2013 Class. One of the athletes the Cajun's staff have target is New Mexico Military offensive lineman Reno Henderson. The Florida native out of Vanguard High school originally signed with South Florida in 2011 after earning 3A First Team All State and First Team All County Offensive Lineman. Henderson visited Louisiana Thursday and left Lafayette impressed with the program.

"I really liked the coaching staff and the facilities," Reno noted. "I attended practice and watched the pace that they move from period to period, and the focus from the staff. Our practices are similar, but not as high tempo from each drill."

What is Reno Henderson looking for in his next program?

"I want to play at a program with good facilities, weight room and that is winning," Henderson stated. "I also have to be comfortable with the coaching staff and the locker room environment."

Henderson had the opportunity to spend some time with offensive line coach Mitch Rodrigue and Head Coach Mark Hudspeth, what did think of the staff?

"I talked to both coaches and ate dinner with Coach Rodrigue last night," said Reno. "Both of them told me I could come in and get stronger in their conditioning program, and they could help me get to the next level. I felt comfortable with both of them."

What did Henderson think of some of the current linemen in UL's program?

"Those are some big guys out there," Henderson stated. "I will have to come in a get stronger to compete with those guys. Coach Whitt told me I have the frame to put on 30 to 40 pounds and get stronger in their system."

Reno is scheduled to visit New Mexico Saturday, when does he think he will make a final decision?

"I will probably make a decision and sign Wednesday," proclaimed Reno. "I don't think I will need more time to make up my decision since I've already visited Western Kentucky and ULL. I enjoyed my experience down in Lafayette and I will see what New Mexico has to offer tomorrow."

Henderson was a full-qualifier out of high school and will have four years to play three when he signs.
