Heavier Seantrel Henderson cuts short Canes Pro Day

Seantrel Henderson's roller-coaster career at the University of Miami took one last strange turn Thursday when he decided to cut short his Pro Day.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Henderson "quit" halfway through UM's Pro Day today and thus "didn't help himself." But Henderson's agent, David Levine, said Henderson did not quit and did not participate in the final two drills because he was "dehydrated and felt sick."

Saying he quit "was quite a mischaracterization," Levine said.

Here's a point no one can argue: Henderson was eight pounds heavier Thursday than he was two months ago at the NFL combine. UM measured Henderson at 6-7, 339 pounds.

Considered the top UM prospect entering next month's draft, Henderson's physical skills are held in high regard by NFL teams. But there remain concerns about his character. Henderson was suspended at least three times at UM (including at least one for marijuana use). Teams also have questions as to why he couldn't permanently hold down a starting job at UM, starting in 26 of the 43 games he played in.

Henderson's Pro Day results weren't exceptionally impressive. His 23-bench reps of 225 pounds Thursday were only two more than safety A.J. Highsmith. Teammate Brandon Linder put up 30 reps, four fewer than team leader and defensive end Shayon Green.

Henderson didn't test in the bench at the combine, but ran a 5.04 in the 40-yard dash and a 24-inch vertical. Thursday, he ran a 5.15 in the 40 and posted a 28-inch vertical leap.

Look at these numbers/

Seriously

This is the reason Miami has stunk the last 5 years

Look at those 40 times

Look at Seantrels attitude

This was Randy Shannon's team. These were Randy Shannon's recruits.

Most of them slow, lazy, entitled.

Those that had better work ethic werent as good athletes.

Eduardo Clements- 5-9 4.72 forty. Really? Whos going to pick him up? The Dolphs?

No wonder they have been losing, the punter and QB are the fastest guys on the team. Remember the days when Miami had speed? Speed kills!

Shayon Green is going to get a look..4.58, 34 reps..Yea, you're going to get look

Shayon Green, DL, 6-1.3, 255

Barely 6-1/255 D-Lineman that have no skill to move to LineBacker get no looks in the NFL. CFL maybe.

Where has our team speed disappeared to ?

Team speed?????

Look no further than any time the Mac staff talks about a player one of the 1st things they mention is the guys height AND WEIGHT!!

To the fool that says it's Shannon's team..

Uh he's been away from the program for 4 full spring practices and 3 full seasons!

Who are u ripvanwincle?

smh.

Thanks to all the former players who stayed the course and represented the U with class. I wish you all the best at the next level.

Posted by: Nash | April 03, 2014 at 07:59 PM

Speed is something you come in with. You don't improve leaps and bounds because you are in a strong college program. You don't go from 4.6 to 4.4. You're either fast out the gate or you're not. Now weight is something that speaks to the player and program.

Nash is such a fool ..yes randy has been gone the last 3 years last time I checked a senior means a minimum of 4 years has been completed ..hmmm 4-3=1 yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa im so smart which means randy kids were the talent majority or lack thereof on the team meaning s judging by records at least that they were mediocre at best randy gone get over it ..we know u dont like the white insurance agent coach golden but fact is he had made more improvements or had a hand in developing the culture ...

Eduardo Clements only did 10 bench press reps? That must be a misprint!

Remember why randy wanted program so silent and private thats so no one would know hownhe operated his program and once upon his firing itbwas learned what he did it was clear he had no clue ....bad relationships with high school coaches ...gamble on northwestern kids and boycott of miami central ..no high school coaches allowed to visit campus unless invited??? NO JUNIORS CAMPS?? COMPLETE BAN FROM FORMER PLAYER S EVEN THE LIKES OF RAY LEWIS OR ED REED SO DONT FEED ME CRAP ABOUT POSSIBLE CORUPTION...LACK OF ABILITY TO HANDLE MEDIA ..HORRIFFIC GAME MANAGEMENT ALL ON TOP OF RECRUITING MEDIOCORE CLASSES ....AND YOU CRY FOR RANDY SHANNON?? Dafuq!! We Get IT YOU FEEL RANDY WAS SHAFTED BY THE WHITEMAN LOL GET OVER IT HES A GOOD DC BAD COACH ..NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT HE WILL ALWAYS FIND WORK DONT WORRY

You losers that still worshiping at the Al Golden tit of losing. Coaching is based on player development. You losers want to misdirect your loser ways.

The fastest Miami Hurricane football player ever was DeMarcus Van Dyke. He was developed along with every other player that was coached up by the most recent coaching staff. The problem was there was a complete lack of support by the leadership of the University of Miami. The lesser ranked recruits were desired by the leadership.

There is a greater amount of support currently. Which has lead to the much greater recruits. But now the players are developed to the levels of these players listed above.

So you saying Shannon's one year if coaching these seniors had more of an influence of the THREE that the Mac staff has had them?

A hand in the improvements??

Look no further than going from drilling the duke blue devils to being drilT BY THEM!!

You sir are a dayum fool!!

And I never said Shannon is/was a better coach than Goldie.

AG is just lighter, brighter, better kings English, baby kissing, booster butt grabbing, 1.5 million dollar paid version.

So you got the insurance agent part right. But that's about it!

Nash didn't say who was better. But I am. You losers are the reason the leadership of the University of Miami can pay this terrible coach more for a worst product on the field. While getting better players and worst students in the class room. You losers deserve to suffer. But the players and fans of the players, like me, do not.

Randy's gone. AG has two years left to show us something.
It's pretty simple. It's the off season, I know...

Lets get off the AG bashing. Fact was he was left with terrible Roster. FACT.
2 --He had 2-3 weeks to put 2gether the 2011 class which luckily we have Perryman and a few starters
3. We HAD THE NCAA LOOMING OVER OUR HEAD From his 1st year, 2011, until a few mos ago.

he sitll managed to get us to 9-4 and he had #10 on Espn this year, and a good ranked class the year before. Most schools that might have gotten what Penn stat got would have lost A LOT OF KIDs and not got top 10-15 classes/

THE Problem is all the studs on the team are Juniors/Soph's,Freshman Now, our Juniors to be , Tracy Howard, Duke Johnson etc, Tyriq Mccord, those guys have experience now nad we should be at least 2 deep with not a lot of drop off now.

Goldens 1st 2 years, we had no depth. You guys like to bash Donofrio, but we have barely had anyone drafted(randys kids), and look at this crop of guys(Also 95% shannons recruits) no 1st rounders, no high draft picks. THAT IS WHY WE ARENT AT FSU"s LEVEL YET

Heres the cycle--In 95/96 when Butch came and THE U went on probation for the pell grant scandal, notice FSU got their best run ever, going to the 1st 3 BCs games, losing to Tenn and the 00 season to Oklahoma When we got screwed). But my point is, Miami was on probation, and FSU SCOOPED UP ALL THE SO FLA AND OTHER TALENT, then sanctions were over and butch recruited well.

Well now, we have had looming sanctions, basically probation for 3 years, and WALLAh, Dumbo has had top 5 classes and loaded up with a lot of So Fla players, DeFiNITELY nEGATIVELY RECRUITING. now, give us 1 more top 10 class, and we will b on the level of UF/FSU/ALABAMA.

We will be back by 2015 season-----D has a lot of playmakers now when these new Freshman report in August, and some of the guys already enrolled. -

WE ARE ON THE Way back.

@DOM
WOW....JUST WOW....
"HOLD YOUR HEADS UP HIGH, THE MIGHT CANES ARE PASSING BY"
Thank cuzzo

By looking at the pro day results the quality of players or training methods or something is not right. Clearly they can't compete on a high level with mediocre to average players.

Cane defense over the past 8 years have been horrible, best athletes are going elsewhere, lets hope it change soon.

DOM-
dtruth

Right on bros. Good posts. The truth right there

Nash was bashing the first post. But it was true. These were all Shannon recruits: MOst (not all)- slow, under athletic, entitled. AND THAT INCLUDED THAT VAUNTED 2008 class of which very few of them are in the NFL!!!!

AFTER this spring season, I will stop bashing or naming Shannon. His players are all gone (yeah including Morris). He will live ininfamy in the UM records but I will stop mentioning his name. I agree Golden has 2 years to get UM back to thepromised land (that being at least a top 5 ranking each year and competing for- if not winning a ship). After that we shall see.

I will personally be happy that we're hearing the last gasp of Seantrel Henderson's under-achieving career. It's always something. Sad.

Mahoney, a player can't improve speed from 4.6 to 4.4 in 4 years? U should just put the mouse down and relinquish the keyboard. Focus your posts on how *U* actually feel and not attempts to save Golden's face at the expense of your own intelligence and integrity.

Other dudes can't formulate a thought outside of their white hype psychosis and the projecting of all of their own entitled mania onto Randy Shannon 4 years removed lol!

Excuses…exuses…excuses…excuses…bloviation…projection…

Extremely ironic that the supposed: "Blame the white man", has now somehow morphed into blaming the black man (Randy Shannon). One ideology has thousands of years of history to support it and the other is just another crutch and smokescreen to mask ineptitude on all levels.

However y'all would love to spin it--the reality is that some of U are the new n&%$az.

Forget slavery, the massacre of the Native Americans, cointelpro etc. etc etc..


But NEVER forget Shannon!!!

And those rings he was instrumental in winning for UM football in 3 different capacities. LOL!

Exactly Cal and the craziest part is that they have the majority of Canes fans believing its the cloud, size, recruiting or some other supposedly outside phenomena behind why we haven't been in NC contention for a decade.

The issue is in house and centers around self-acceptance along with just not being very smart.

It never mattered what recruit FSU, UF or any other school got (their size, speed or appearance--they were going to lose to Us when they stepped onto the field vs UM…period.

We had gold teeth, we were tough, fast, strong, but the most important quality that we had and they didn't--was that we were smarter.

Thats a lost characteristic on a lot of fans. Physical attributes have a limit, but intelligence does not. We were smarter than FSU and they knew it. They tried to compensate for it with girth and physicality--just the philosophy we are implementing right now.

The tables have turned. We have insecure meathead coaches now, so that intellectual advantage that morphed into a psychological advantage vs our rivals, is now gone.

Nash this killed it.

When in the HELL are you guys gonna let the PAST go. RS the MAN, not the black man, but the MAN, was NOT a good HC PERIOD, he did not motivate, he po'ed a lot of high schools and just wasn't able to do what he did as a DC. He was a helluva DC, and proved it year in and year out. He also made sure the kids were in their classes, and graduated which is another feather in his cap, but that's it man. So for the love of God let it go.

You losers continue to make those statements that you losers make. Al Golden has not made the players better than the lesser paid and thought of coach. The players are higher regraded recruits with Al Golden. But not better developed players once they arrive at the University of Miami.

He is not developing those higher regraded recruits. When he graduates those players at the highest rates ever, like the previous coach, then he will do one thing that the previous coach did. Now he does not develop them better or graduate them as the previous lesser paid and thought of coach.

Never did Miami have the scholarship reduction currently as they did with Butch Davis. You losers are bringing your loser ways to this university, along with the leadership here.

In the 1984 Louis Oliver, from South Florida, was a 4.6 forty walk on at Hogtown. He was developed into a sub 4.4 second scholarship player. That was possible decades ago. The training techniques are light years ahead and better now. But Al Golden has not shown the ability to develop players better now than they did over thirty years ago.

Did I bring Shannon up Cola? Start at the top and read down--comments are in sequential order and are oftentimes impacted by previous comments.

My post that U reposted is sarcasm that basically mirrors exactly what U just posted. So why did U choose to use it as if I'm the one who "can't let Shannon go."

So as a DC Shannon was able to motivate, but as a HC he was not? How is that possible? Stop regurgitating rumors and innuendos that were produced (if u care to research them), by his distractors and former bosses after his firing to justify it to the fans and boosters. This hook, line and sinker display is old--there's zero utility in overtly displaying the ability to be naive and gullible, especially as a grown man.

That quote, mind state and ideology that "I don't see color" is a hoax and oxymoron. If U didn't see color than U wouldn't even need to express that U don't. Also, it isn't honorable or appropriate to try to ignore differences ("I don't see color") as if there's something wrong with the existence of differences. I see color, but look at them as an opportunity to learn and build cultural capital.

Yeah you did bring him up HTC, and if YOU will read I said 'when the hell are you GUYS' as in plural, not just you. How can you even make the statement 'so RS could motivate as a DC, but not as an HC'? Are you kidding?? You saw how his teams performed, and how they quit on him NUMEROUS times, I mean come on dude that's a weak statement. He's NOT an HC period, and probably won't be again.

Also the jury is still out on AG, he's on a very thin line, and Dno is pretty much on vapors.

If I brought up Shannon then what is this post previous to my own called?

Keep attempting to change history even on a damn sports blog…geez lol!

UMMMMMMMMMM. U sux. get ready for another (U)nranked year with Al Golden Showers at the helm.

Once again, I'm not arguing whether or not Shannon was a good HC or not, I've said countless times that he wasn't ready for the gig and didn't do well in that capacity. The issue is that whenever someone defends RS after being blamed for every inadequacy of this football then and now, the person is considered to be a believer in his abilities to have been a good HC at UM. Those two things aren't mutually inclusive--one doesn't automatically mean the other.

Shannon is a Cane great for numerous reasons, and he doesn't deserve the level of vitriol and blame he receives sometimes on this blog---despite his unsuccessful coaching tenure.

Other than Virginia, what game did the team quit on him?

Under AG I've seen them quit vs VTech, Duke, FSU, KSU and Notre Lame.

The frequency in which our teams have quit on AG, has actually increased every year of his tenure as more and more of Shannon's recruits (who were the starters over AG's more heralded, but fan maligned recruits have graduated).

Shannon recruits are the best thing that ever happened to AG. Without Shannon's offensive recruits he has zero wins the last two seasons. And Shannon's "terrible" defensive recruits have started over AG's handpicked guys every year. Hmmmmm.

Golden and his flock can *say* what the want to disparage Shannon, but who has hit the field of play the last 3 seasons on Saturdays for UM LOL?

This is all about Seantrell, not the coaches.

There's nothing worse than wasted talent.

Cola, U said, "guys", but only reposted my comment (that U also misunderstood and read wrong lol) and then purposely neglected to repost who truly brought him up--U just can't make this stuff up.

Randy's gone. His record and current position speak for themselves. His players are gone. With few exceptions, his players did not carry on the U tradition at the next level, comparatively speaking. He was a true cane, a champion at every level for the Canes...except as HC. Was he unfairly pushed out too early? Maybe... by a racist UM admin? I don't think the evidence suggests that.

AG has two more years to prove he is not a fraud; which many of us suspect, but hope he is not.

HTC, I can appreciate your perspective on race, but I think you're overplaying it here and at this point, your impassioned arguments for Randy just...I dunno, don't matter?

You're better than a one trick pony as a contributor here, but the venom on this thread is a head-scratcher...

------------------------------------------------------

That's because yours was the last one in the thread, if it had been another's then I would've responded after their's. Hence I said (guys)

Pro day at UM again shows the players are not ready for the NFL. No one will be chosen before the 3rd round if that early at all.
Al least we had many CFL people there. Seems the UM to the CFL pipeline is very strong. With Jacory serving as the 3rd string QB/ water boy for the Eskimos that can only bode very well for Morris. He will need to play in the cold weather though something that has been a struggle for the canes lately.

Yah, the 40 times are weak in general. A few good ones.

On Henderson, never got his act together. Over-hyped coming out of high school.

Smoking pot is not a good thing for any athlete that wants to operate at a high level. It diminishes motivation. Henderson is an example of a guy who could not sustain 100% dedication to improvement.

What happened to this young man that he can't give it his all every minute?

Fact: the majority of my posts are about UM football

Fact: the majority of my posts that resonate to some readers conscience are those where I *respond* to racial charged comments and epithets.

Today is a great example of the true ratio of the content of my posts.

Out of my last 7 posts--2 mentioned race or were race related lol! So the one trick pony comment isn't accurate and only reads to me as a nice way of saying, "sshhhh" or "be quiet".

My comments in defense of Shannon, "don't matter", but those that directly disparage him and blame him for every ill of UM's football program 4 years removed--do matter? And if not, then where are your posts directed at those that continue to bring him up?

I'm sorry, but a person's ability to garner employment is not an unquestioned gauge of their prowess in their field. This mind state U promote, just goes to prove that I'm not "overplaying it here" lol! I'm just exposing it here and it disrupts your fairytale.

Have I *ever* suggested that he was pushed out too early by a racist administration? Nope, not in one post, ever. Calvin has, Champcane may have, but I'm not them, so just lump us all together, especially when I take such time to express exactly how *I* feel succinctly here.

"Evidence"…lol!

Must be nice, to wholeheartedly believe in men and their desires-based social systems.

Cola, I still didn't bring him up---that was the whole issue. If its "guys", then why repost any one person's comment???

Cola, U don't do to well commenting to anyone but trolls. Please stick to blog "defense" status aka troll food.

Yes it was me that stated that Al Golden is inferior to Randy Shannon. I'm a native Floridian and as pointed out from a friend from Ohio. We Floridians can spot the racist of America. There is a ton you learn from being in the most southern state in America. Call it a racism detector. Because the basis of the majority of these post is racism.

Al Golden has shown he is an inferior coach. The worst of the 37 years that I have followed the University of Miami football. The attempt to see it any other way than that is based on racism to the core of these Al Golden supporters. As with the direct superior of Randy Shannon, Kirby Hocutt. Along with many of the leadership of the University of Miami.

We know what we see and we see it way before others know it. We been dealing with those type of devils for a long time now.

They always try and rearrange the shannon topic. The questions has always been "is moron goldie a better headcoach than shannon" and the answer is clearly, NO WAY! You got individuals talking about give this moron 2 more years, we don't need to 2 more years to know this moron can't coach.

Go and listen to kirk herbstreit commentate the Fsu game, he broke down our defense to a tee, not because he knows UM football, it's because he knows exactly wha type of big 10 football techniques these morons have brought to UM that are not working and are not going to work. We got scared men coaching defense with the exception of coach barrow.

shannon brought the talent level back up and his highest draft pick was a 2nd rounder. shayon green running a 4.58 and basically being the 3rd fastest at the combine that's comical.

Hey Champ, Florida may be geographically more south, but you want to see true 'southern hicks', you go to Bama, GA, Miss, Ark, or Lou, LOL.

HarrietTubmanCane, Calvin, Champ Cane. I don't know if Golden will make it or not, but he got left holding the RS bag of crap! NCAA violations & almost single handily ruining the program. Butch Davis left the program stocked and between Larry Coker & RS they ran it into the ground. Terrible recruiters both. The biggest racists here are you guys. Keep the "black thing" going till Shannon breathes his last breath! He was TERRIBLE as a recruiter, coach, had no energy, couldn't deal with the media and yet he got fired because the UM admin & powers are racist. Seriously, has Shannon got another job as even a DC yet. the answer is no & why because the people in the know in college football know he is a loser as a coach. So keep the racism and hate alive all of you! It's what you know and do best!

Your projecting your racism. You are the exact example of the definition of projecting.

Al Golden has more talent on his roster than any team Randy Shannon possessed. With the terrible things you contribute to him. Why do you not see the clear truth?

More talented players when recruited from high school, more highly paid staff, more fan support, more local high school coaches support, more support from the University of Miami's leadership, are all the positives for Al Golden. But he has done worse than Randy Shannon, who you state everything negative that he is supposed to have done. Not one win ever by Al Golden over a superior talented and superior coached team.

That is why you would be the exact example of the word racist.

Any and all comments about candy randy need to finally stop. I know I have been one to mention his name in many negative contexts but he's gone and his recruits are finally gone. There, done and done. We have Golden's recruits now, 100% his players, and no more cloud over the program's head. This is now truly starting fresh. Clear skies in front of us now.

Now there were guys on this list that did come here to work and gave it "their" best. There were also those who came here and simply couldn't put in as much as the others due to injuries (Shayon Green, Eduardo Clements and Curtis Porter). Then there were those who came here with their hands held out, palm up and expecting handouts.

To the JUCO's that came in and tried to fill in some spots and push the underclassmen. Pat O'Donnell, you have a very bright future in front of you. Grab it and hold on tight.

Hagens....Man thank you for everything. The fullback position is completely underrated yet important piece that is so often forgotten. I wish you the best.

Linder...Thank you for your leadership and character. Thanks for bringing in your lil'brother. I wish you the best.

Hurns...Thanks for stepping up and producing. When we needed someone to step up, you answered the call. Wish you the best.

Morris...Thanks for playing through the pain. It's never easy throwing the ball when you have no back foot. Thanks for keeping us in the game so many times. I wish you the best.

If I didn't mention a name is simply because that person didn't produce in my eyes what I consider to be a Miami Hurricane. Sorry just my honest opinion. To many guys there simply went through the motions and didn't fight for their spots. What a shame. Could have won a few more games had they done so. Can't put it all on one person's shoulders. It's a team sport and everyone is held accountable. Everyone.


GO CANES!!!!!


A couple of things U should know:

Big Shantrell was hurt a lot during his UM years. He hurt his back, had surgery. The guy can play. Nobody goes from the highest ever recruit out of Minnesota to being nothing. If I'm a draft guy, I'm taking SH as first OL easily.

Shayon Greene is what they call a "baller." He'll fit right in on somebody's team as a LB. The DC should thanks his lucky starts that Shayon was on this team. Are U telling me that Shayon can't make the Jaguars squad?

U got to remember you are talking about the U: Players and talent are what UM is about. Now it's another story when it comes to coaches.

Mahoney, a player can't improve speed from 4.6 to 4.4 in 4 years? U should just put the mouse down and relinquish the keyboard. Focus your posts on how *U* actually feel and not attempts to save Golden's face at the expense of your own intelligence and integrity.

ROFL, this man told em to basically cease and desist his keyboard, lol quite perfectly. HTC, if that clowns theory holds True, than Usain bolt came out of highschool with the world record already. And dvd and travis benjamin must of already been running in the 4.2's before they got to UM.

Also for those who want to continue to lie on shannon, when it was clear the talent got erroded before shannon took over and it was shannon who began to get players drafted again and went from having no picks to a 2nd round pick.

The facts are the facts, shannon did way more with way less than what these penn disgrace morons have done. We've watched this penn disgrace moron get blown out in how many games now, but yet they only bring up 1 or 2 games where shannon was the head coach and we got blown out. That's why i don't worry about imbeciles like them.

Everybody on this blog with a NC ring raise your hand......that's what I thought, keyboard gangstas, Pop Warner boosters, Madden Hall of Famers, keep my name out your mouth
