2014 Tar Heel verbal commit Caleb Henderson is one impressive quarterback and he’s made a name for himself being one of the top quarterbacks in the nation. While his days of high school football are over, he wasn’t done just yet showcasing his talents before graduation.
Henderson got to play in the US ARMY All-American Bowl at the first of the year, a honor given to 90 of the best players in the country.
“It was a huge honor,” Henderson told the local Fairfax Times. “I was really happy I got the opportunity to be called an All-American with some of those players. It was just really exciting for me to go down to San Antonio and play in that game because I’ve seen them play ever since I was a little kid.”
Henderson is a pro style quarterback that Fedora and team heavily pursued and eventually won over. The 6-3, 230 pounds quarterback is a four-star talent coming out of Alexandria’s Lake Braddock High School in Virginia.
With Marquise Williams and redshirt freshman Mitch Trubisky competing for the starting job later this summer, Henderson may be red-shirted as well. It may not be what he wants, but it will give him time to learn the playbook and develop as a player. It will also give him an extra year to play and give him his chance to lead the Tar Heels’ offense.
