Lobo WR commitment flips from Oklahoma State to Baylor University

Looks like Lehman High wide receiver Tyler Henderson will be taking his talent to Waco next fall.

On Sunday, Henderson announced via social media that he would sign his national letter of intent to play college football at Baylor University.

Henderson’s decision came after Baylor, which is currently helmed by recently hired head coach Matt Rhule, offered him a scholarship Jan 21.

In a message posted on Twitter, Henderson said the decision came after “much prayer and guidance” from his family and Lehman head coach Todd Raymond.

During the summer, Henderson originally committed to play football at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD.

But in November 2016, Henderson decommited from Navy and announced plans to sign his letter of intent to play at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Okla.

“I am thankful for all of the schools who had faith in my abilities as a player and student that offered me a chance to play at the next level,” Henderson said in his message. “I am forever grateful, but look forward to great things as a Baylor Bear!”

Henderson, who was named as the 2016 25-6A Utility Player of the Year, finished the 2016 campaign with 446 yards and six touchdowns rushing, while also tallying 13 receptions for 125 yards and a touchdown.

By signing his letter of intent with Baylor, which participates in the Big 12 conference, Henderson will become the one of the first Lobo football players to receive a scholarship to play at the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) level.
