The Gators will still have a Henderson next season.
Xzavier Henderson, ranked the No. 10 wide receiver in the 2020 class out of Christopher Columbus High School in Miami, committed to Florida over Clemson, Alabama and Georgia during NBC Sports’ live coverage of the All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas.

The No. 59 overall prospect in the 2020 class by 247Sports and the younger brother of NFL-bound defensive back CJ Henderson, Xzavier seemed set to play for the Tigers before Jeff Scott took the USF head coaching gig.
Still, the Gators had to fend off several SEC powers for his commitment, which gives the Gators 25 total commitments in the 2020 class.
“It’s my second home,” Henderson said to an NBC announcer. “I could give you a tour. I’m ready to be great.”
With the 6-foot-3 1/2, 180-pound Henderson’s commitment, Florida moves up to No. 7 in 247Sports’ composite rankings.
