Notre Dame Football Recruiting

2021 ATH TreVeyon Henderson Impressed With Irish Defense

September 16, 2018

Notre Dame hosted several prospects on Saturday, including 2021 Hopewell (Va.) defensive back TreVeyon Henderson‍, who made his first visit to South Bend. 

The 5-foot-10, 170-pounder is a name to keep close tabs on as the recruiting process moves forward as he holds offers from Indiana and Virginia, but it would be a shock if he isn’t at double-digits by the end of the year. 

Henderson got to see the 22-17 win over Vanderbilt, but he also got the opportunity to take in the environment around Notre Dame. 

“It went great,” Henderson told Irish Sports Daily. “We toured around the facilities and the campus. They had nice buildings, and I liked the way they were built.” 

During the game, Henderson was paying close attention to the Irish secondary and the defensive staff. 

“I liked the way the coaches hyped the players up,” explained Henderson. “I really liked the way the defense executed. The offense wasn’t getting the job done, but the defense held their ground.

“The crowd was lit. Out of every college I have been to, I don’t think there is another college like Notre Dame.” 

Henderson got a chance to meet some members of the team following the win, as well as the staff. 

“They are recruiting me at defensive back,” stated Henderson. “I went into the locker room after the game and the coaches thanked me for coming.” 

While his recruitment might just be starting, Henderson has some of the premier programs in the country recruiting him, and he’ll head out on a few more visits this fall. 

“There are a lot of schools recruiting me,” Henderson said. “Cincinnati, Michigan, Penn State and Wake Forest are the schools recruiting me the hardest right now.

“I’m going to Indiana next week. I’m supposed to go to Cincinnati sometime in November.” 

Henderson will also look to get back to South Bend in the future as Saturday’s visit is something he embraced. 

“Yes, I’m definitely looking forward to coming back to Notre Dame.”
