Update: Seantrel Henderson announced he would return for his final season of eligibility, but there has been no announcement of alleged NCAA infractions committed by Miami. Columnist Greg Cote of the Miami Herald writes that enough is enough. The school either deserves a notice of allegations or a letter of apology from the NCAA.
Today we revisit the case of one Seantrel Henderson. Remember him?
Henderson was the No. 1 recruit in the class of 2010 out of Cretin-Derham Hall High in Minnesota. He's back in the news again because on Monday, the offensive lineman will announce whether he plans to return for his final season of eligibility at Miami or play his odds in the NFL draft. The smart money has been on Henderson returning, but that was before word leaked that the NCAA planned to deliver a list of alleged infractions to the school on the same day.
If Henderson is looking for the first ride out of town, it wouldn't come as a surprise to anyone at USC. Henderson bailed on that school after it was slapped with NCAA probation in 2010. Who could forget his signing day announcement on CBS College Sports that he was going to be a Trojan? The video proof is above.
But the 6-foot-8, 340-pound manchild leveraged NCAA sanctions against USC to get out of his scholarship. He transferred to Miami, where it has been a bumpy ride at best.
