As a two-way starting senior for the Memphis University School in Memphis, Tenn.,Marcus Henderson isn’t convinced he’ll be playing strictly offensive line in college.
But one thing is certain for the newest Arkansas Razorback.
Come summer he'll be in an SEC West trench, giving it everything he’s got. After taking January visits to Georgia and Ole Miss, Henderson booked a one-way ticket to play for one of the top offensive line recrutis in the country in Sam Pittman.
At 6’5, 300-pounds, the 4-star Under Armor All-America Game selection will look to improve an offense that struggled heavily in 2019 resulting in a change within the coaching staff from the top down. Pittman and offensive coordinator Kendal Briles are now running the UA show.
Henderson’s commitment makes just two offensive linemen in Arkansas' 2020 class to this point. The latest brings impressive footwork to an otherwise unimpressive 2019 Arkansas offensive line, and given his versatility, could see himself thrown in the mix as early as 2020.
During his time at Memphis University School, the 300-pound Memphian had success lining up at defensive end, defensive tackle, offensive guard, offensive tackle, and even H-back. Come fall 2020, Henderson could be the first line of defense for an under-performing UA starting offensive line.
