Hey, here’s something for a slow news day!

Wake Forest running back transfer Kenneth Walker III is, you guessed it, coming to Michigan State! The rising junior is coming off a big season for the Demon Deacons where he racked up 13 touchdowns to go with his 579 rushing yards (4.9 yards per carry).

Of course, MSU took on Wake Forest in the 2019 Pinstripe Bowl and saw Walker on the other side of the field. The Spartans bottled him up for 24 yards on eight carries that afternoon.

Walker had three games this season where he surpassed 100 rushing yards, also having a trio of games where he scored three touchdowns.

Walker joins Harold Joiner (out of Auburn) as running backs who have transferred to Michigan State. Jarret Horst (offensive line), Drew Jordan (defensive end) and Anthony Russo (quarterback) are also part of the quintet of transfers coming in next season.
