Henderson talks with ESPN’s Andy Katz

Ole Miss made Marshall Henderson available for a chat with ESPN’s Andy Katz as the Rebels prepare to travel to Kentucky.

In the interview Henderson says — among other things about his season — that he’s not using drugs right now. He describes himself as “clean.”

Here’s an excerpt:

There was no choice. Henderson was on the shortest leash possible. He was subject to constant drug testing and has been under the microscope the entire season. Henderson said in an extensive interview in October that he has been able to stay clean and sober during the basketball season, but it has always been after the season when his life goes awry. This upcoming offseason — the one in which a professional basketball career will be in the balance — will be his ultimate test.

“I wouldn’t be playing if I wasn’t [clean],” Henderson said. “I’m still on ultra-lockdown. If anyone thinks I’m not, they’re crazy.”
