Michigan’s Kurt McHenry Transfers To Penn State Wrestling

Cael Sanderson went portaling.

Former Michigan wrestler Kurt McHenry announced his commitment to Penn State Sunday night after entering the transfer portal earlier this month.

The 125-pounder will arrive in Happy Valley with two years of eligibility remaining.

The Leesburg, Virginia, native didn’t compete as a freshman and, as a redshirt freshman, McHenry went 0-2 in competition during his second year.

In his redshirt sophomore year at Michigan, McHenry clinched the championship at the Findlay Open at 125 pounds. The following season in 2022-23, McHenry registered a 7-4 record and finished his career in Ann Arbor with a 12-6 record.

Ahead of the 2023-24 season, McHenry will likely battle for a position in the starting lineup with fellow 125-pound Nittany Lions Class of 2023 recruit Braeden Davis, Robbie Howard, and Gary Steen.
