Redshirt Senior Linebacker Kevin Henry Enters Transfer Portal

Another Poke has hit the portal.

Linebacker Kevin Henry announced his decision to enter the transfer portal Wednesday afternoon. Henry was already a redshirt senior in 2019, but he was granted a sixth year of eligibility with his career thus far being riddled with injuries. Henry announced his decision with this heartfelt message on his Twitter:

Henry played in 36 games at OSU where he had 57 total tackles, three tackles for loss, an interception and a forced fumble.

Henry came to Stillwater as a three-star prospect in the 2015 class out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He also had offers from Miami, LSU and Ole Miss.

After redshirting in 2015, Henry played in all 13 of OSU’s games in 2016 as a redshirt freshman, where he had 18 total tackles and an interception against West Virginia.

He was set to build on that stellar start in 2017, but he played in only the Tulsa game before losing the year with an injury. Henry came back to play in 10 games in 2018 and 12 this past season, missing only the season-opener.

OSU’s linebacker room was thought to be thin entering 2019, but Amen Ogbongbemiga and Malcolm Rodriguez shored up the unit, combining for 203 total tackles. Those two finished No. 1 and No. 2 on the team in the stat.

Ogbongbemiga and Rodriguez return for the Pokes in 2020, and after missing the season with a back injury, Calvin Bundage could also get involved for the Cowboys along with Devin Harper, Na’drian Dizadare and Kamryn Farrar.

Henry becomes the ninth Cowboy to enter the portal in the cycle, joining Patrick McKaufman, Grayson Boomer, Jahmyl Jeter, Kyle Junior, Blake Barron, JayVeon Cardwell, Kris McCune and Xavier Player. OSU has also brought in offensive lineman Josh Sills and defensive lineman Collin Clay in off the portal.
