Not sure if that is true on this one. I think verbal commits may underestimate the interest in him.

I won't pay too much attention to the VC info. James Jones has a way of finding "hidden" talent. Do the names Makai Mason and Miye Oni sound familar? They were both NEPSAC Class A Players of the year (Mason, 2014 & Oni 2016) and relatively lightly recruited.

Like most good coaches, Jones and his staff have gotten proficient at identifying players who, while not getting a lot of attention in the recruiting world, are excellent fits for their program. I think you can say the same for Henderson and his staff. This is clearly a recipe for long-term success.
