5-star Alabama running back Emmanuel Henderson sets upcoming commitment date
A decision is upcoming for the top running back from Alabama in the 2022 recruiting cycle.
By this weekend, five-star Emmanuel Henderson will have made his decision public.
That’s according to Henderson’s head coach at Geneva County High School, Jim Bob Striplin. Henderson plans to announce his college commitment Saturday, March 13 at 1 p.m. CT, Striplin told 247Sports.
“I think down the stretch it’s really been Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, LSU, and maybe Georgia,” Striplin added when it comes to Henderson’s options.
A native of Hartford, Ala., the 6-foot-1, 185-pound Henderson is rated as the No. 2 overall running back in the nation, the No. 2 prospect from Alabama and the No. 28 overall prospect in the country in the 2022 recruiting cycle according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Henderson was a 2A first-team all-state selection during his junior after rushing for 1,446 yards and 20 touchdowns last fall.
One look at his high school highlight reel and it’s easy to see why so many elite programs want to add Henderson to their roster.
