Oklahoma State’s deep linebacking core took a hit on Wednesday.
Sixth-year senior linebacker Kevin Henry announced on Twitter that he will be transferring for his final year of eligibility.

Henry qualified for a sixth year of eligibility after missing all of the 2017 season with his ACL injury. The redshirt senior was expected to be part of a deep and talented linebacking corp in 2020 that included Malcolm Rodriguez, Amen Ogbongbomiga and Calvin Bundage. While plenty of talent returns, it’s still a loss for the team to see a player with Henry’s level of enthusiasm and leadership leave.
Henry appeared in 12 games this past season, accounting for 23 tackles, including 1.5 tackles for loss, and a forced a fumble.
In 2018, Henry played in 10 games and was a starter in the Liberty Bowl. He was named the winner of the 2018 Vernon Grant Award for outstanding leadership, spirit and enthusiasm.
Henry, who has already graduated, will be immediately eligible wherever he ends up. He is now the ninth OSU player to enter the transfer portal this year.
