LOGAN – Another Aggie basketball player has decided to transfer from Utah State, further changing the roster and leaving uncertainty for the upcoming season.
Sophomore forward Daron Henson joined former teammates Koby McEwen and DeAngelo Isby receiving a release from the program. He took to Twitter Tuesday afternoon to announce he intends to transfer.
Henson played in 33 games last season and started in one, averaging 4.3 points per game. He took most of his shots from beyond the arc, averaging 38.4 percent from 3-point range. He scored a career-high 18 points at Fresno State, which included a 3-point shot at the buzzer to seal the win.
In addition to the three players who have received a release, Alex Dargenton and Julion Pearre won’t be returning due to graduation. Of the 13 players who received playing time a season ago, just eight remain.
