Five Star Running Back TreVeyon Henderson from Hopewell Virginia

Five Star Running Back TreVeyon Henderson from Hopewell Virginia


Hopewell Virginia running back TreVeyon Henderson committed to the Ohio State Buckeyes tonight over offers from Oklahoma, Georgia, Penn State, Michigan and others. A 5’11” 195 lbs. prospect, Ryan Day has a great piece of his 2021 class settled tonight.

Considered the top player in the country by many, his motivation comes from his desire to help his hard working mother.

Running Back TreVeyon Henderson

Henderson was great on the field last year, winning a state championship with 2,424 yards and 45 touchdowns, as well as in the classroom, earning a 4.0 grade point average. He averaged 12.2 yards/carry during his junior season.

Henderson is the current Gatorade Player of the Year in Virginia. He went from being a defensive back prospect as a sophomore to a 20 lbs. heavier running back with better speed as a junior.

He is able to change direction quickly and increase speed while breaking away from entire backfields.

TreVeyon Henderson Visits

Henderson was unable to visit Ohio State as he had planned in April due to the world-wide pandemic (the NCAA on-campus and off-campus visit suspension), but felt great about the coaches and the program at OSU. He mentions running backs coach Tony Alford as a reason that he feels very comfortable with the team today. Expectations were for Henderson to take his time with recruiting, but all that changed with the visit restrictions. Al Washington and Ryan Day were also pivotal in Henderson’s recruitment.

Many are comparing Henderson to JK Dobbins, who also never visited Ohio State before committing. He grew up watching Ezekiel Elliott and the Buckeyes during their great 2014 and 2015 seasons.

The Ohio State 2021 Class

Ohio State had the top 2021 class in the country before Henderson’s commitment and is now only stronger. Most college programs are just trying to keep what they have and wait out the pandemic, but not Ohio State. Ohio State has become a virtual recruiting giant doing video chats, constant phone conversions, and having academics available to answer any and all questions.

Ohio State will have a running backs room with Trey Sermon, Marcus Crowley, Steele Chambers and Miyan Williams in 2020. Trey Sermon will graduate from the program as Henderson and Evan Pryor enter for 2021.

Recruiting running backs for Ohio State has been without much success over the past two seasons, but the recent pickups of Trey Sermon, Evan Pryor and TreVeyon Henderson have led everyone to forget about those years.
