The football season might be over for the Green and White, but the news kept coming on Friday afternoon as yet another Michigan State Spartan role player announced his departure and entrance in the NCAA transfer portal. This time, the player in question is redshirt sophomore, Jeslord Boateng.

The 6-foot-1, 228-pound linebacker joined the Spartan roster as a three-star rated member of the 2018 recruiting class and hailing from Dublin, Ohio. Boateng played sparingly during his redshirt freshman campaign in 2019, but he did see action in 11 games to earn a varsity letter.

He played a total of 59 snaps on defense in 2019 and recorded a total of 10 career tackles, including six solo tackles and one for a loss. Jeslord appeared in all seven games for the Spartans this fall, but failed to record any tackles, according to the official MSU athletics website.

The departure of Boateng marks the latest Spartan to enter the transfer portal since November, including Luke Fulton, Charles Willekes, Anthony Williams, Marcel Lewis, Julian Barnett, Devontae Dobbs, and Davion Williams. Coach Tucker has expressed interest in remaking the roster over the next several months. Now that the season appears to be over, that remake appears to be fully underway.
