The Miami Hurricanes have received a commitment from Class of 2017 cornerback Christopher Henderson.

“I chose Miami because it’s right at home and I feel like I’ll fit right in,” Henderson told Scout.com. “Nothing is better than dominating in your own city. I wanted to make a decision today because I know their situation at defensive back, and the coaches feel I can make an impact my freshman year.”
