Michigan State Spartans redshirt sophomore cornerback Davion Williams has entered the transfer portal, according to mLive. Williams is the second Spartan to do so Friday, following fellow Belleville High School classmate Devontae Dobbs. That makes three overall from Belleville after Julian Barnett entered the portal last week.

Williams, a 6-foot and 180-pound former three-star recruit in the 2018 class, appeared in three games as a true freshman in 2018. As a redshirt freshman in 2019, he played in all 13 games, primarily on special teams. Williams has played sparingly this season on defense and special teams, recording eight total tackles, including one solo, according to sports-reference.

Williams was a big fan of basketball and noted during his commitment how he got to play in a pickup game as a freshman in high school visiting MSU. Among the players he went up against or played with in that game included Draymond Green, Stanley Johnson, Denzel Valentine, Bryn Forbes, Miles Bridges, and Branden Dawson.

Coach Mel Tucker has made clear he expects attrition from the roster after this season, and Williams makes seven players now who have entered the transfer portal.
