University of Denver transfer forward Michael Henn has narrowed his school of choice down to three, and Penn State made the list.

Illinois and Notre Dame are also in the mix for the 6-foot-8, 225-pound Henn, who will have one year of eligibility remaining.

Henn is from Bellevue, Washington. He started his college career in 2016-17 at UC-Davis, where he helped the Aggies to their first conference championship and NCAA tournament appearance in school history, averaging 4.3 points and 1.5 rebounds as a true freshman.

Henn then transferred to Cal Baptist, redshirting the 2017-18 season. He came back in 2018-19 season to start 24 games for the Lancers, averaging 6.8 points and 4.1 rebounds. Henn missed the 2019-20 season due to injury.

After Cal Baptist, Henn played for the University of Portland as a graduate transfer for the 2020-21 season and started 20 games for the Pilots, averaging 7.8 points and 3.5 rebounds while shooting 39.7 percent from 3. 

Last season, Henn started 27 games and averaged 8.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists while shooting 38 percent from three.

Henn would bring Penn State’s front court a veteran presence,  with the departure of John Harrar, Greg Lee coming off of a foot injury and  Kebba Njie and Demetrius Lilly being incoming freshmen.
