Michigan State stays busy filling up the transfer portal this offseason.
For the fourth time since Saturday’s spring practice session concluded and second time this Monday, a Spartan has reached the transfer portal, this time with offensive lineman Damon Kaylor, according to the Detroit Free Press’ Rainer Saban. Tight end Tommy Guajardo also entered his name in the portal earlier today.

The 2019 class recruit came into Michigan State as a three-star prospect. rated as the No. 93 offensive tackle prospect and the No. 16-ranked player in Indiana. He also held offers from Boston College, Cincinnati, Virginia and home state Indiana, as well as a smattering of MAC schools.
With a host of names like AJ Arcuri, Luke Campbell and newcomer Jarrett Horst (previously Arkansas State) above him in the pecking order, the rising third year player has opted to leave the program.
Kaylor redshirted as a freshman without seeing game action in 2019, and did not receive playing time during the 2020 season either. He did earn Academic All-Big Ten honors in 2020, however.
Michigan State also lost a few offensive tackles earlier this offseason as Jordan Reid is moving on from the program, Justin Stevens entered the transfer portal, and Devontae Dobbs transferred to Memphis.
Update: Kaylor has since confirmed the news himself:
I would like to thank all of the coaches at Michigan State and Coach Dantonio for the opportunity they gave me to attend Michigan State, but after talking with them and my family I feel that it is best for me to enter my name in the transfer portal. pic.twitter.com/wFzr8HT3SW— Damon Kaylor (@Damon_Kaylor) April 26, 2021
