Former Arkansas forward Ethan Henderson quickly found a new home after entering the NCAA transfer portal this week.
A Little Rock native, Henderson committed to Texas A&M on Saturday, according to a post to his Twitter account. The 6-8 forward announced Wednesday his intentions to transfer from Arkansas.
He was one of two scholarship players to enter the transfer portal following the team’s Elite Eight run, joining guard Desi Sills. The former Jonesboro standout has not announced a transfer destination.
Henderson played in 50 games in three seasons with the Razorbacks, starting six in 2019-20. He averaged 1.3 points on 60.0% shooting and 1.6 rebounds over 6.9 minutes per game at Arkansas.
Out of Parkview, Henderson was rated a four-star recruit and the No. 1 player in the state of Arkansas by 247 Sports and ESPN. He won a state championship with the Patriots in 2016 and 2018.
In 2020-21, he scored a season-high four points three times — vs. Lipscomb and in back-to-back games against Missouri and LSU in the SEC Tournament. He added seven rebounds vs. the Tigers and blocked three shots in 26 minutes.
Henderson was 10 of 14 from the floor last season, including 10 of 13 at the rim. He grabbed 23 rebounds – 12 offensive – and blocked 12 shots.
