Michigan football transferred offensive lineman from Arizona State

Michigan football transferred offensive lineman from Arizona State

For the second consecutive season, Michigan received a graduate transfer forward from the portal.

LaDarius Henderson, a four-year starter and team captain at Arizona State, has verbally committed to play for the Wolverines in 2023, he announced Tuesday afternoon.

In a social media post, the 6-foot-5, 310-pound lineman can be seen posing in a photo alongside Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, offensive line coach and co-coordinator Sharon Moore, co-coordinator and defensive backs coach Matt Weiss and tight ends coach Grant Newsom.

Henderson, a graduate student with one year remaining, entered the NCAA’s transfer portal on Monday. He previously accepted an invitation to the 2023 East-West Shrine Bowl, signaling his intention to enter the NFL draft.

At Arizona State, Henderson started 29 games on the offensive line, starting at left tackle as a freshman before moving to guard. He played 13 games at left guard in 2021 and started the season at left guard again, playing in six games before suffering a broken hand.

Where he fits into Michigan’s offensive line remains a question. Left guard Ryan Hayes and center Olu Oluwatimi, who transferred from Virginia to Michigan last year, have already accepted invitations to the Senior Bowl, while starting guards Trevor Keegan and Zach Zinter have yet to make decisions about their futures.

In recent years, the Wolverines have built their offense around a big, physical line that has been highlighted by a cadre of play-making running backs.
