The 2021 season has ended for the Michigan State Spartans with a surprising 11-2 record and a New Year’s Six bowl victory over the Pittsburgh Panthers in the Peach Bowl. Before the bowl game was even been played, however, MSU already had several players who had announced their intention of transferring out of the program via the transfer portal. That trend will continue throughout the offseason as well.

Additionally, Michigan State has already had transfer players from other schools announce commitments to the Spartans as well.

Head coach Mel Tucker and his staff used the portal to their advantage ahead of the 2021 season, bringing in several difference-makers, such as running back Kenneth Walker III, linebacker Quarvaris Crouch, left tackle Jarrett Horst (who missed the last few games of the season for undisclosed reasons) and many others. Last offseason’s transfer tracker post can be viewed here.

As for this postseason/offseason, keep up with all of the latest roster movement here:

Michigan State players who have entered the transfer portal (22):

Note: Linebacker Ma’a Gaoteote entered the transfer portal on Jan. 19 and withdrew his name from the portal on Feb. 1. He will be staying at Michigan State. The same is true for fellow linebacker Ben VanSumeren, who withdrew his name from the portal on April 18.

Note: Long snapper Nick Chudler has also reportedly entered the transfer portal, but he has not been with the Michigan State team since 2019.

Note: Just because a player enters the transfer portal does not necessarily mean that player is leaving Michigan State.

Players from the transfer portal coming to Michigan State (10, including a walk-on kicker)

Note: Michigan State has also added a walk-on kicker in Auburn graduate transfer Ben Patton.
