CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Seantrel Henderson, Brandon Linder and Curtis Porter will return for their senior seasons at Miami.

The trio made their announcements on Monday. Henderson started the final seven games of the 2012 season at right tackle for the Hurricanes, while Linder started all 12 at right guard and Porter was limited to only two starts at defensive tackle because of injury.

With their decisions now final, Miami expects to have 20 of 22 offensive and defensive starters back next season.

The Hurricanes finished tied atop the Atlantic Coast Conference's Coastal Division this past season and would have played in the league championship game if they had not self-imposed a postseason ban because of the NCAA's investigation into the school's compliance practices.
