Redshirt freshman wide receiver Ty Henderson did not find the field in 2017 or 2018, and he is now looking for a new home.

The Central Michigan football player is transferring from the program, a member of the CMU Athletic Department told Central Michigan Life.

Henderson came to CMU as a member of the 2017 class for former coach John Bonamego. He took a grayshirt in 2017, leaving him as a redshirt freshman for 2018. 

If Henderson was still on the team, he'd be a redshirt sophomore for new coach Jim McElwain in 2019. Instead, he's looking elsewhere to get reps on the gridiron.

Henderson did not immediately respond for comment.

Hailing from Dublin Jerome High School in Columbus, Ohio, the 6-foot, 165-pound athlete totaled 1,719 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns as a senior. He earned Associated Press Division I-II First Team All-State honors after leading his team to back-to-back league championships.

Henderson, as a senior in 2016, helped his team finish 10-2 overall and put together the first playoff win in school history. He holds the career receiving yards and touchdown receptions records at Dublin Jerome.

Since the end of the fall semester, CMU has seen departures from Henderson (transfer), defensive end Deron Irving-Bey (academics), linebacker Steven Spenner (academics), running back Jaier Harden (unknown) and wide receiver Keith Jefferson (unknown).

Without Henderson, CMU's wide receiver room for the 2019 season consists of 16 members:

Senior Jamil Sabbagh
Senior Brandon Childress
Senior Damon Terry
Junior JaCorey Sullivan
Sophomore Mark Patritto
Sophomore Julian Hicks
Redshirt freshman Tyrone Scott
Junior Tony Palmer
Sophomore Jack Combs
Sophomore Drayton Law
Senior Cameron Cole
Sophomore Bailey Edwards
Redshirt freshman Keontra Nixon
Sophomore Kalil Pimpleton
Freshman Adam Jones
Freshman Darrell Wyatt
