USC to release Seantrel Henderson from LOI


Thankfully, it appears that the Seantrel Henderson circus saga may be over.

Per reports from both Joe Schad of ESPN and Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times, Lane Kiffin has released Henderson from his USC Letter of Intent, freeing the top-ranked prospect to move on to another school without sitting out a transfer season.

“As of 1:30 p.m, we are releasing Seantrel Henderson out of his national letter of intent with zero penalties and no restrictions,” Kiffin said. “Seantrel has been great through the whole process and we wish him the best of luck in his decision.”

Henderson was rumored to have been in Miami this past weekend — after twice being visited by members of the Trojans football program in an attempt to “re-recruit” the tackle — so the Hurricanes would be an obvious destination.  The Hurricanes have a scholarship available, so there would be no issues on that end. 

Additionally, Ohio State was high on the offensive lineman’s to-go list before he settled on a verbal commitment to USC this past February.

Either way, the circus saga has seemingly come to an end, at least as far as the Trojans are concerned.  Hopefully, Henderson is a little more decisive on his destination and does not drag it out for days/weeks.
