Georgia Tech Vs. Miami: Seantrel Henderson Could Reclaim Starting Spot

The Miami Hurricanes have been shuffling their offensive line all season, but they may be close to returning to full strength this week against Georgia Tech.

Seantrel Henderson, a massive 6'8 345 LT who was one of the top high school recruits in the country two years ago, could reclaim his starting job after missing most of the early part of the season recovering from back surgery.

Miami moved RG Brandon Washington over to Henderson's slot, but head coach Al Golden has been unhappy with the production he's gotten in Henderson's absence:

"We’re not getting enough out of the left tackle,’’ he said. "It’s just as simple as that. We’ve tried multiple guys over there. I don’t like the way it looks and it’s going to get fixed. … I can’t look at it anymore.’’

Henderson was a freshmen All-American last season, and his return could set up an intriguing match-up on the edge with Yellow Jackets LB Jeremiah Attaochu, also returning from injury and widely regarded as one of the top defensive prospects in the nation.
