Thayer Evans at the New York Times is reporting that Seantrel Henderson, the highly recruited offensive lineman who as thought to have signed with USC, hasn’t actually done so yet.
According to Henderson’s father, Sean, he will wait until U.S.C. appears before an N.C.A.A. infractions committee from Feb. 19-21 to hear about possible sanctions for the program before deciding whether to sign the letter. Though the Trojans are not likely to hear about any possible sanctions at that time, Sean Henderson said the hearing would give the family a sense of where the process was headed.
Henderson has until April 1st to sign. Did someone put a little bug in his ear about possible sanctions? I can’t imagine such things would happen in the sqeaky-clean world of recruiting.
