Is USC losing top recruit Henderson?

Could arguably the top recruit from the 2010 signing class be having second thoughts about enrolling at sanctioned USC?

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Trojans head coach Lane Kiffin, recruiting coordinator Ed Orgeron, offensive line coach James Cregg and top assistant Monte Kiffin jumped on a private jet to visit Seantrel Henderson, the massive offensive tackle, to gauge just how committed the Cretin-Derham Hall star is to becoming a Trojan.

Henderson wasn’t in attendance for a scheduled orientation last week at the school, which concerned the new staff enough to make face-to-face visits on Monday with the 6-8, 330-pounder in the Twin Cities.

As of now, we don't know if Henderson reaffirmed his commitment to 'SC in the meeting or if he is on the fence. However, Henderson's father refused to comment to the Pioneer Press on his son's status and Henderson himself did not return several calls from the paper.

There has been some speculation that the left tackle has reconsidered his commitment to USC and that Miami and Ohio State could be back in play for his services.

The NCAA slapped the Trojans with harsh penalties for actions that took place in during the Reggie Bush era. The sanctions include no bowl appearances for the next two seasons, as well as the loss of 30 scholarships over the next three years.
