Henderson is likely facing a red-shirted season in his freshman season with Marquise Williams, Mitch Trubisky, and Kanler Coker lined up ahead of him. Trubisky was red-shirted his freshman year and will compete with Williams this summer for the starting job, Henderson will likely go head-to-head with Trubisky next year.
