    My guess is Sac will be over .500 if he is at least an average coach. If he has a good year, 50% chance he bolts.

    In case anyone was curious whatever happened to Mikey Henn, he is transferring to Penn st. This after stops at cal baptist, Portland, and Denver after leaving the Ags.

    Oh boy, who wouldn't be lining up for a chance to recruit a seemingly fickle non-superstar 1-year player ??!! Top3...he should feel lucky anyone's interested in letting him continue playing after he just flitted around like that. Sure will be nice when all the COVID kids have exhausted their eligibilty and there's a decrease in the Re-recruitment All-Stars. Like weddings but bored with your wife ? Jump in the marriage transfer portal.

    Crazy...UCD to Cal Baptist to Portland State to Denver to Penn State...wow!

    That’s gotta be a walk-on, right? Maybe not, article I read said this gives them needed depth. Weird

    I liked him as an Ag and was disappointed he left after his frosh season. 5 schools?
  • Oldbanduhalum

    Some pretty high level programs. Seems like a big step for him.

    article I read made it sound like they had a depth issue at power forward with only 2 incoming frosh there. Nice stop gap for PSU, nice step up for Henn

    I hope it works out for him.

    According to his Denver profile he was in graduate school at both Portland Denver..and now a third school. Ridiculous. If he hadn't already graduated I'd swear he was Van Wilder.

    I don't think this is what the NCAA had in mind when they added the idea of the grad transfer!
  • AggieFinn2

    It seems to me like he's abusing the system. Not saying they don't exist but how many graduate programs do you know of that you can complete start to finish in 1 year while playing college basketball ? Apparently he either found two of them or isn't taking his pstgraduate education as seriously as he should. Is he going for a doctorate in Basketball Studies ?

    that’s a problem with the grad transfer - get in and get eligible one term, play, bail…,,repeat. I’m guess he’s not Mikey Henn, BS, MS, MS. Football is worse - don’t even have to show up for classes.

    Blame the schools

    Caleb McGill to D2 Metro State

    Btw, I sat next to Mikey Henn at a BW Tournament game the year after he had left Davis; he was sitting out that year before playing for Cal Baptist and was watching Davis play UCR in the semi finals. Nice guy and I think I did ask him why he transferred but can't remember what he said. Given that experience, I've paid loose attention to his multi-stop career. Crazy that he's still out there. To put into perspective, my son was in Junior High when Henn started his college career and will be halfway through college when Henn finishes.

    That makes sense because he's from Colorado.
  • Oldbanduhalum

    Yeah I remember my son (who was still in high school) and I going to see the Ags at Cal in one of Henn's better early games (16-17 season). My son has graduated college and is already in the working world. Crazy college career for Mikey.

    More size. Niko Rocak, 6'9" big man is transferring from UCSB where it looks like he only got into two games in 20-21 and none last year.

    With 6'11" Borra, 6'9" Anigwe/Mani/Rocak, and 6'7" Henry/Strong/Manu, this has to be one of our biggest squads in a while. Of course, we now have to see who can produce.

    his brother Toni was a pretty good player at UCSD
  • Oldbanduhalum

    I watched a few minutes of his HS senior season highlight and he looked pretty good. Some low post moves and some driving from the high post. Even some 3 point range. But that was about 3 years ago, so we'll see where his skills stand now.
  • BlueGoldAg

    I'm guessing that he thought he'd have a better chance for more minutes here than at UCSB. They're loaded again as always.
  • Oldbanduhalum
    521
    yeah I would think so. In the, what seems like, distant pass, Les liked to start two bigs and then bring in two off the bench together (thinking back to jt/ritchart starting and fox/monson subbing in). More recently he’s really played with only one big on the court at a time, and sometimes none. Curious to see how the minutes play out this year. I’m guessing that Mani will redshirt, as it usually takes some time for bigs to get accustomed to D1 speed. I could see Anigwe and Henry getting the most minutes with Bora and Rocak subbing in. Manu and Strong seem to be more wing type players who will compete with Milling for minutes. It’d be kind of interesting to see a group of Beasley/Johnson/Pepper/Milling and maybe Strong or Manu get some time together.
  • BlueGoldAg

    Definitely going to be interesting to see how this group comes together. The trip to Europe in August will be good opportunity for players to get to know each other and, hopefully, help create a great team chemistry.
