FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (BVM) — With the NCAA giving an extra year of eligibility to players, the transfer portal is becoming a go-to route for players seeking more playing time. One of those players entering the transfer portal is Arkansas forward Ethan Henderson.
Whichever school Henderson chooses, he’ll have two years of eligibility left.
“Being a Razorback for the past 3 years has been an unbelievable opportunity,” Henderson stated in an Instagram post. “Being able to play for my home state is an experience I will always remember.”
This season, Henderson came off the bench in 18 games. He averaged 1.2 points, 1.3 rebounds in 6.1 minutes. In one of his top performances this year, Henderson played 26 minutes against LSU, where he scored four points, grabbed seven rebounds, and had one assist.
Henderson didn’t play much in the NCAA Tournament. He played a combined five minutes.
Henderson is the second Razorback to enter the transfer portal since the end of the season. Guard Desis Sills is the other Razorback player to enter the transfer portal after he averaged 7.5 points in 32 games this year.
“I want to thank my teammates. Thank you for pushing me everyday to be a better player. What we accomplished this season won’t be forgotten,” Henderson said in the post. “I am excited to further my college basketball career. I am entering my name into the transfer portal and looking forward to where God takes me next.”
