Running back Billy Henderson, who was not a part of Bulls 30-player signing class in February, signed a scholarship with the USF football team Tuesday.
“I decided on USF (a few months ago) but kept it to myself,” Henderson told the Tampa Tribune. “I’m like an underdog.
Coming in at the last minute, a lot of people did not pay that much attention to me.
“At first I wanted to leave the state, but I really liked USF and it’s an up-and-coming program.”
As a senior at Pinellas Park, the 5-foot-11, 185-pound Henderson rushed for 1,192 yards. Henderson scored 10 touchdowns and averaged 9.9 yards per carry.
In addition to USF, Henderson said he considered Tulane, Virginia and Maryland.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
