    TOP DOG -- Treveyon Henderson, committed to Ohio State
    247Sports national scout Charles Power summarized our view of Henderson in his recent feature with this simple statement: "TreVeyon Henderson is the most complete running back prospect entering his senior season in several recruiting cycles."

    The 5-foot-11, 195-pound Henderson remains our top-ranked back in this class and is a decisive No. 1. He owns impressive verified speed on the track that manifests on the field, as well as outstanding production. He used his 10.94-second 100-meter speed -- and a 6.45 in the 55 meters -- to terrorize defenses as a junior, when he ran for 2,424 yards and 45 touchdowns on 12.2 yards per carry. That's an average of 4.4 rushing attempts per touchdown.

    The Hopewell (Va.) High School star has shown encouraging pass-catching ability and dynamic return game functionality with three TD's as a junior. The Virginia Gatorade Player of the Year scored 53 total touchdowns, which is second in state history.

    Furthermore, Henderson is a highly instinctive runner who sets up his blocks superbly and frustrates defenders at the second level and in the open field. He's a special playmaker and one of the gems of Ohio State's No. 1 class on the 247Sports Composite Team Recruiting Rankings.

    BEST CLASS -- Ohio State
    TreVeyon Henderson and Cornelius (N.C.) William A. Hough standout Evan Pryor give the Buckeyes a pair of national top 100 prospects at the running back position in the Top247 rankings. Both are well-rounded backs who can stay on the field all three downs and provide home run-hitting athleticism.

    Ohio State boasts impressive verified speed at the position thanks to Henderson and Pryor. As noted above, Henderson owns a 100-meter time in the 10.9's. The 5-foot-10, 190-pound Pryor ran multiple times in the 10.8's as a sophomore in the spring of 2019.

    The 5-foot-10, 190-pound Pryor is among the top pass-catching backs in this class and his lateral mobility shows in his elusiveness. Henderson and Pryor account for two of Ohio State's whopping nine top 100 recruits in the Top247 rankings.

    Five-star RB TreVeyon Henderson’s commitment influenced why Ohio State football’s 2021 class ‘shoots for high goals’: Buckeyes Recruiting Roundup


    Five-star running back TreVeyon Henderson of Hopewell (Va.) High School has never set foot on Ohio State’s campus, but that didn’t keep him from joining the Buckeyes’ top-rated 2021 recruiting class.

    “I pretty much saw everything I needed to see,” Henderson told “I knew about all the colleges that offered me. I did my research with the coaches and talked to the coaches a lot. I felt more comfortable with The Ohio State University. The coaches, environment, the culture, it’s all great.”

    It’s not clear when he’ll finally visit Columbus and see the place he’ll call home for at least three years. The NCAA has extended the recruiting moratorium three times with no hint whether a fourth time is an option.

    But he did his research on Ohio State and the other eight finalists before deciding in March. He knows he’s made the right decision, and now he’s using his experience to help recruit some of other highly touted targets such as WR Emeka Egbuka, OT Tristan Leigh and DE J.T. Tuimoloau.

    “I use that ‘I didn’t visit, but I still committed’ to my advantage,” Henderson said. “That gets to a lot of the recruits and makes them feel like, ‘Well, if he committed it must be something good about Ohio State.’ That’ll make them want to commit.”

    He isn’t the first top-100 running back to choose Ohio State without stepping on campus. J.K. Dobbins did so before joining a 2017 class that would eventually rank second in the country. Dobbins would run for 4,459 yards — including a school-record 2,003 in 2019 — and 38 touchdowns on 725 carries before being the Baltimore Ravens’ second-round draft pick.

    Henderson is the nation’s top running back and No. 16 overall player. He’s the first five-star running back to commit to Ohio State since Beanie Wells in 2006. He and North Carolina four-star Evan Pryor helped correct the running back recruiting woes of the past three recruiting cycles.

    Just as important, he’s probably the main reason some of his fellow commits have outlandish goals, such as winning three national titles.

    His commitment changed the mindset from this being just another No. 1 recruiting class to one that competes with some of the best of the modern era. His words, whether in a group chat or across social media, show how the other 18 players in the class feel. They all think this class can be special, and it starts with Henderson.

    “Everybody’s on the same page," Henderson said. "We all talked about how many championships we’re going to win. We all agreed to three. That’s what I love about us. We don’t shoot for low goals. We shoot for high goals. Goals that seem unachievable.”

    Flip on TreVeyon Henderson’s junior season film and you will see one of the more impressive highlight tapes in America for a high school prospect.

    The five-star running back seems to glide across the field more than sprinting, with smooth lateral transitions and a stop-start burst in which he gets back to full speed faster than any other at his position in the 2021 class – or maybe even the past several classes, as he’s been labeled “the most complete running back prospect in years” by the scouts at 247Sports.

    Henderson caught up with Eleven Warriors this week, detailing to us what he’s been up to the past few months, and as you might expect, it’s been a loaded schedule with multiple workouts every day.

    “What I do each and every day depends on my workouts that day. It’s mainly been track, weight room and football all in one day,” Henderson said. “I work out three times a day – track workouts, just stuff to keep my speed up. Track, weight room and football.”

    One of Henderson’s best traits is his track speed, as he set a personal record with a 10.94 in the 100 meters as a sophomore, and he earned Hopewell (Va.) High School’s first-ever state championship for a member of the boys track team by winning a title in the 55-meter dash during the 2020 indoor season with a run of 6.48 seconds (6.45 is his PR).

    He also has a strong build to him, with some good muscle tacked onto his body that helps him with being able to show some physicality as a between-the-tackles runner.

    And, according to Henderson, both his speed and strength are getting kicked up a notch in the offseason heading into what will likely be his final semester at Hopewell.

    “My coach got me into a track meet in late July. My 100’s gonna be down to a 10.4 or 10.3. Last year I ran a 10.9. I haven’t timed myself yet, but it’s definitely gonna be low 10.4 or 10.3,” Henderson said. “My bench and my squat all went up a lot. I couldn’t even push 225 one time at the beginning of the year, but now I rep that with ease. I think my bench is around 265 or 270 right now, and my squat I could only hit 405 one time. Now, I’m repping 405 with ease, and I’m at 450 or more.

    “With my track coach, we do more of hang cleans than power cleans. I was supposed to max out my bench and hang clean (on Tuesday), but my hang clean I’m probably at 270-plus. It was lower than (225) coming into the year. I had to transition from a safety – from a defensive back – to a running back, so my numbers weren’t as high anymore. But I hit the weight room hard, and my track times went down and my weight room maxes went up a lot.”

    Note to mods...the words "flip" and "TreVeyon Henderson" should NEVER be allowed in the same sentence on this board again until the ink is dry!
    But seriously, him and mom visiting campus on their own is a great idea that more commits should look into.

    “I’ll skip spring football and still enroll early,” Henderson told Eleven Warriors. “It's a tough decision because I still wanna play football, but at the end of the day, it’s still gonna benefit me. I can start off fresh at OSU and start training. I just want to go ahead and get involved in the program and get a feeling about what Ohio State is all about; get around some of the players and just get comfortable there."

    Henderson is not the only Ohio State commit mulling this decision. Jack Sawyer, Reid Carrico and eight other potential early enrollees could have to make similar decisions if their seasons are postponed until the fall.
