There have been a lot of rumors involving Miami offensive lineman Seantrel Henderson floating through Miami and Coral Gables in the last few days. According to InsidetheU.com, Henderson has been suspended for Miami's season opener against Maryland in 2011. Then there are the rumors that Henderson is thinking about transferring from the school.

Which wouldn't be the first time Henderson changed his mind about his school, after all. One of the most highly rated recruits of the 2010 class, Henderson originally announced a commitment to USC on signing day in 2010, but did not sign his letter of intent. He wanted to wait and see about the sanctions that would be hitting USC before signing, and then eventually chose to go to Miami.

One of the biggest reasons Henderson chose Miami was head coach Randy Shannon, who has since been fired and replaced by Al Golden. And that's where the Henderson transfer rumors grew from. Rumors which have now been denied by both Henderson and Al Golden.


More Miami

“Seantrel has every intention of remaining with the University of Miami and our football program,’’ Golden said in a written statement. “It is disappointing that individuals are taking the liberty to hypothesize on his future. He is coming off a strong finish to off-season workouts, rotated with the first team on Thursday and is well respected and liked by his teammates. Seantrel is growing into a leader, loves the game and cares deeply about being a part of the Miami Hurricane family.’’

“I am committed to my teammates, coaches and the championship goals we are chasing at the University of Miami," said Henderson in his statement. "I have no desire to play anywhere but at the U.”

Of course, while that settles the transfer rumors, you'll notice Al Golden said nothing about any possible suspension. Though according to Seantrel's father, Sean, neither he or his son have been informed of any suspension.

Seantrel Henderson not transferring, suspended?

This article needs to be corrected. 

Henderson DID sign his letter of intent with USC because the NCAA decision was taking too long.  Once the sanctions were handed down to USC (so the NCAA could then hit Cam Newton and every other case with cupcake gloves) Henderson request and received a release from his letter of intent and transferred to the 'U'.

I understand this was not the core of the story but facts are facts.
