Redshirt junior offensive tackle Mustafa Khaleefah, true freshman defensive tackle Simeon Barrow, and true freshman defensive end Jasiyah Robinson have joined senior right tackle Jordan Reid and true freshman offensive lineman Justin Stevens in opting out of the 2020 season. Reid and Stevens has opted out prior to the start of the 2020 fall season.
Khaleefah was a three-star recruit out of Dearborn High School and played in seven games over his career, including five last season. He has not dressed for any of the four games Michigan State has played this season.
Barrow was a three-star recruit out of Grovetown High School in Georgia, and has not played yet this season. Barrow did appear on the sideline in uniform for the first two games against Rutgers and at Michigan, however.
Robinson was a three-star recruit out of Groveport Madison High School in Ohio. He has not been dressed on the sidelines for any of the games so far this season.
