From the Denver Post
"Henington is rated as the fourth-best in-state prospect for the class of 2012 by, which is part of the Rivals network. He had 114 tackles and a team-high 11 sacks last season. He joins Mountain Vista defensive end Clay Norgrad as an early in-state CU commitment. Norgard committed to CU in mid-February. Henington's a major get for Embree and the Buffs, and not only because he's one of the state's best talents. Last season, CU landed only one Mullen player - highly-touted linebacker Brady Daigh - from the state's most talent-rich program."
