I wonder how the freshmen who already enrolled at USC feel about the latest news on uber-recruit Seantrel Henderson, who was released from his letter of intent.
Henderson, out of Minnesota, was ranked as the best high school offensive lineman in the country and delayed signing his letter until he knew more about USC's penalties. Or at least he actually believed what Kiffin and Ed Orgeron were selling him about USC's penalties. When the actual penalties came out, reports have surfaced that Henderson and his family were not happy and felt misled by the USC coaches (what???? a college football coach stretched the truth while recruiting? that's just nuts). When Henderson didn't show for freshman orientation, it became clear he wanted to at least have a choice of where to sign.
Henderson is now eligible to attend another school without having to sit out a season. Miami, Fla. and Ohio State were the runners-up in Henderson's recruitment and would seem to be logical fits.
Miami seems to be the likely destination. While the 'Canes were up against the scholarship limit, some academic questionmarks could open a spot for Henderson.
In the "current player bad news of the day" category - reserve defensive end Malik Jackson will transfer to - tah-dah! - Tennessee!
While Jackson says he's doing it for playing time, I'm pretty sure the opportunity to be a lifelong Vols hero just for leaving Lane in a lurch was the motivating factor.
Jackson is the second player to leave USC. And while most of the players have publicly said they're staying, I wonder if USC's botched attempt at appealing might drive a few more away.
