No. 1 RB in 2021
TreVeyon Henderson, the nation’s no.1 RB in the class of 2021. For those of you that don’t know him, you should. I tried to tell you awhile ago Henderson was going to be something great. The 5-11 195 RB is an absolute stud. In his Junior season he recorded 53 TDs, 3,000 APY, 48 tackles, and 3 INT.

The kid is a monster on all sides of the ball but now he’s honing his RB skills. Just watch him hit 21.6 MPH on this 99-yard TD..
So it’s pretty clear why he’s the no. 1 RB in the 2021 class at the moment, but where will he go? I’ve got Henderson going to Oklahoma, Georgia, or Ohio State.
Each of these programs is a powerhouse and touts one of, if the not the, best offensive lines in their respective conferences. With that said each program has some unique draws.
Oklahoma just got DeMarco Murray as their RBs coach. While Murray is still newish to the coaching game, he has had high praise from his former head coach and carries immense clout from his successful NFL Career. There has been a lot of hype around Murray’s recruiting prowess. In an attempt to live up to the hype I’m sure he’s recruiting Henderson hard.
Georgia’s main pull here is Kirby Smart. Smart has been absolutely tearing up the recruiting scene. In that past 3 years, Smart has had 2 no. 1 classes and 1 no. 2 class. There’s no doubt he and his team are amazing at recruiting so I have to include them in the top 3 landing spots. In addition, Georgia is the most recent team to produce a RB that is likely to go high in the NFL draft. Being able to point to D’Andre Swift as an example of what a recruit can become is a hell of a pitch.
1. Ohio State
Ohio State is number 1 because they provide the best opportunity for Henderson. First off, the Buckeye’s will need help at the RB position after losing missing a few key recruiting targets in 2020. While both Georgia and Oklahoma are likely to be much deeper at RB in 2021. In addition, Ohio State’s offense is more appealing to a RB. There’s no doubt Ohio State takes a more balanced approach to their offense than Oklahoma, who lives off of an air-raid-esq scheme. With Georgia adding Todd Monken, I see them leaning more toward a spread passing offense. Therefore, Ohio State’s offense is undoubtedly more appealing to an elite RB looking to make a name for himself.
