York High lineman Cody Hendrickson has, for some time, expressed a desire to play football in the Colonial Athletic Association. Increasingly, his problem is becoming not if but where he'll play. Richmond became the second CAA school to offer Henderickson a scholarship.
Hendrickson, a 6-foot-3, 250-pound two-way lineman got his first scholarship offer in June from James Madison University. He is the second Bay Rivers District player to receive an offer from the Spiders, who also offered Grafton defensive back Marcus Spearman on Friday.
"I've been waiting for this offer because I really like Richmond," Hendrickson said, adding that he will nonetheless wait to see what other offers come before making a decision. "They recruited me (only) for defense and I really like that, because my preference would be to play defense in college."
Hendrickson said many colleges are likely to look him as a defensive end. JMU did not specify which side of the ball it recruited him for and, after receiving that offer, Hendrickson will play on either side of the ball if he likes a school more than any other.
