Longhorns’ loss is Aggies’ gain as four-star DT switches over

When Mack Brown and his staff were pushed out at the University of Texas, Texas A&M fans had to be grinning–knowing what was about to happen in recruiting.

Late Wednesday night, the first reaping of the rewards happened: Four-star defensive tackle Zay-Coven Henderson–who in early December had committed to the Longhorns only to drop them Wednesday–came aboard. Henderson is a 6-foot-1, 280-pound tackle out of Longview (Texas). He previously was committed to TCU before switching to Texas and then the Aggies.

“I’m Taking My Talents Texas A&M #GigEm,” Henderson Tweeted around 10 p.m. EST on Wednesday. His Tweet was accompanied by one of a very cryptic–yet now totally understood–nature from Aggies head coach Kevin Sumlin. “YESSIR!,” the coach Tweeted, the same thing he Tweets for every commitment since he can’t publicly comment on any of them until they sign a letter of intent.

Henderson’s the 21st commitment for the 2014 class.
