Instead of two Utes, it’s now three who have left the Beehive State’s Power Five program for its Group of Five school this offseason.
In mid-June, Utah State confirmed that a pair of transfers from Utah — wide receiver Siaosi Mariner and tight end Caleb Repp — had been added as graduate transfers. Nearly two months later, the Aggies confirmed that former Ute defensive end Nick Heninger has joined second-first-year head coach Gary Andersen‘s roster as well.
As was the case with his former-turned-current teammates, Heninger will be eligible to play immediately in 2019 as a graduate transfer. Additionally, the lineman will have another season of eligibility that he could use in 2020.
Heninger played in 23 games the past two seasons at Utah after beginning his collegiate career as a walk-on with the Utes in 2016. Prior to the start of this past season, Heninger was placed on scholarship.
