Scouting Report

The top high school prospect out of Alabama, Henderson is a physical, 6-foot-3, 194-pound infielder with a chance to stick at shortstop. He has some power from the left side of the plate and solid bat speed out of a slightly wide stance with a toe-tap load and long, one-handed finish. Henderson also has plus arm strength with excellent carry, but he’ll need to improve his footwork and ability to throw from multiple angels to avoid being pushed off the position—and over to third base—in the future. He’s athletic despite not being a great runner, and he has some experience as a pitcher, but his pro future is with the bat, regardless of where he winds up defensively. Henderson is committed to Auburn.
