The Clemson coaching spent a good portion of head coach Dabo Swinney’s two-week high school camp laying the groundwork for the 2021 recruiting cycle, but also played host to a group of prospects they hope will complete the 2020 recruiting cycle.

That includes 4-star wide receiver Xzavier Henderson out of Miami (FL) Columbus. Henderson spent two days on the Clemson campus and worked out with wide receivers coach Jeff Scott on Wednesday. Henderson as a track event this weekend so his workout time was limited, but he still saw all needed to see.

“It was a fun experience being my third time being there,” Henderson said. “I had fun. I learned some new things from Jeff Scott. I had fun with the players. I actually have a track meet this weekend so I only did the drills and routes Wednesday morning. I feel like I did good.”

In running those routes, Henderson was able to catch passes from future Clemson quarterback DJ Uiagalelei, and he said that was quite the experience.

“He’s a great quarterback,” Henderson said. “He’s very big and very skilled. He fits the Clemson model for quarterbacks.”

Henderson has a strong offer list that includes Miami, Alabama, Florida St., Georgia, Michigan, Nebraska, Oregon, and Tennessee. He plans to spend the next few weeks developing a list of his top schools, and he said Clemson will be on that list and that the Clemson coaches have a good understanding about his situation.

“They already know my feelings towards them from previous times that we talked,” he said. “They just told me to take my time and go visit other schools. They gave me the stats that they have compared to other schools and gave me something to think about. It’s a big decision to make down the line. I really like Clemson and they’ll be in my top schools.”

Henderson left Clemson for Georgia and a camp there on Thursday. He also plans to camp at LSU, Alabama and Florida. He will not sign until February and does not have a timeline on a decision.
