Longview junior defensive tackle Zaycoven Henderson now has multiple offers from Big 12 programs.
The 6-foot-3, 276-pounder said Baylor offered when an assistant coach visited the high school Monday morning. He picked up his first offer from Oklahoma on Jan. 27.
Henderson visited OU for junior day on Saturday and <a href="/news-journal.com/tncms/admin/action/bit.ly/XCwihx%20" target="_blank">named them his early favorite following the trip</a>. He has invitations to SMU's junior day on Feb. 16 and Texas' on Feb. 23, while also drawing interest from Texas Tech and others.
He racked up 48 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and two sacks last season, helping spearhead a strong Lobos defensive line that led District 12-5A in run defense. He then turned heads by winning Defensive Line MVP honors at the Next Level Athlete Top 100 Showcase in Pasadena on Jan. 20.
