USC football: Top recruit Seantrel Henderson reportedly will sign this week

March 15, 2010 | 12:32 pm

Seantrel Henderson, an offensive lineman from Minnesota who announced that he would attend USC but then held off signing a letter of intent, will sign with the Trojans this week, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

The 6-foot-8, 335-pound Henderson was regarded as perhaps the top player nationally in the 2010 recruiting class.

In February, he announced on national television that he had chosen USC. Later that night, however, his father said he would not officially commit to the Trojans until after USC went before the NCAA's Committee on Infractions.

The hearing was held in late February in Arizona. A decision about possible sanctions is expected in late April or May.
