Seantrel Henderson, who was regarded as the No. 1 recruit in the class of 2010, reportedly wants out of his letter of intent to USC after the Trojans were penalized earlier this month by the NCAA. One problem: USC doesn't want to release the manchild offensive lineman.
Larry Brown Sports reports that Trojan coaches made a second trip to Minneapolis this week to put pressure on the former Cretin-Derham Hall standout to honor his letter of intent. The trip comes a week after coach Lane Kiffin, recruiting coordinator Ed Orgeron, offensive line coach James Cregg and assistant Monte Kiffin flew to Minneapolis following Henderson's failure to show for orientation at USC.
It's unclear what promises USC's staff had made to Henderson during the recruiting process, but if Kiffin's recruitment of running back Bryce Brown a year earlier is any indication, Henderson probably has reason to question the Trojans' sales pitch.
