Last week, Michael “Mikey” Henn, a forward who entered the transfer portal from the University of Detroit, committed to Penn State. Head men’s basketball coach Micah Shrewsberry announced the signing of Henn Monday.
Officially a Nittany Lion 🖊️ Welcome to Penn State, @mikey_henn!

Henn said the program is excited to have Henn “as a part of the Penn State basketball family,” and said he brings “much-needed size and experience in the front-court.”
“Michael is a great student who should be an asset for our program both on and off the court.”
If all goes according to plan, this will be the fifth school Henn has played at (yes, you read that right).
He started his college basketball career in 2017 at the University of California-Davis, and has since played at California Baptist, Portland and Detroit.
Over the past four seasons, Henn has started 71 of the 83 games he appeared in. This past season, he averaged 8.8 points and 4.6 rebounds a game for Detroit.
Henn is the third transfer Shrewsberry has landed in this portal window, joining Cam Wynter (Drexel) and Andrew Funk (Bucknell.)
Henn will be the last player Penn State adds unless a scholarship spot opens up. All scholarships are filled at this time.
Assuming Henn starts, he’ll replace John Harrar in the front court.
