Five Hun student athletes, including nationally ranked offensive lineman Caedan Wallace and running back Joshua Henderson, signed National Letters of Intent to play collegiate football on Wednesday during the sport's early signing period.
Wallace, the no. 3 offensive guard recruit in the country, signed with Penn State. Joshua Henderson, the 12th-ranked running back recruit nationally, signed with University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Three other Hun students also signed with D1 programs, including quarterback/wide receiver Jackson Barletta (Fordham University), safety/linebacker Brendan Ekwughalu (Colgate University), and tight end Dylan Deveney (Georgia Tech).
Wallace received scholarship offers from thirty schools. He will play in the All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas, on January 5th, which will feature the top-100 high school senior players in the country. And on Jan. 19th, he’ll play in Hawaii’s Polynesian Bowl.
“It feels really good to sign and make it official,” said Wallace. “A lot of hard work went into this, for me and my parents; they made a lot of sacrifices. To see it all come to fruition is awesome.”
Henderson has been ranked the number 13 recruit in the state, and ranked 12th among running backs in the U.S. He received more than 20 scholarship offers from around the country before settling on North Carolina.
“Hun has been such a great place for me,” said Henderson of his high school career, both academically and athletically. “Everything about Hun has been a positive for me.”
The Hun School of Princeton is an independent, coeducational, private day and boarding college preparatory school. Student-centered, hands-on learning prepares students for the global community in which they will live and work.
