Vols add to DB depth by signing JUCO defender D.J. Henderson
Junior college defensive back D.J. Henderson signed his scholarship papers with Tennessee Wednesday, making him an official member of the Vols 2016 roster.
An important signing for the Vols, considering one possible area of uncertainty for Tennessee in 2016 will be the defensive backfield. With both starting safeties graduating and the possibility of Cam Sutton leaving early for the 2016 NFL Draft, the signing of Henderson becomes all the more important for the team moving forward.
