Verneal Henshaw held offers from several other schools, including Florida Atlantic, Coastal Carolina and Tulane.
Flagler Palm Coast offensive lineman Verneal Henshaw verbally committed to Georgia Southern University on Wednesday, July 25. Georgia Southern is a Division I school located in Statesboro that competes in the Sun Belt Conference.
The Eagles had a down year in 2017. They went 2-10 and lost six in-conference games. Their previous head coach, Tyson Summers, was fired after starting the season 0-6. He was replaced by assistant coach Chad Lunsford, who is now the official head coach of the team.
Henshaw — a 6-foot-4, 270-pound rising senior — held offers from several other schools in addition to Georgia Southern, including Florida Atlantic, Coastal Carolina and Tulane.
Henshaw will join his sisters in their family's Division I tradition. Jasmine Henshaw played basketball at Eastern Kentucky, and Tamara Henshaw just completed her second year on South Florida's girls basketball team.
