The Michigan State Spartans add another to the transfer portal on this fine Wednesday, according to Colton Pouncy of The Athletic.
Theo Day entering the transfer portal isn't exactly surprising. Felt like a crowded room. And when redshirt freshman QB Noah Kim grabbed the No. 3 job out of spring football, this felt inevitable.— Colton Pouncy (@colton_pouncy) April 28, 2021
The latest departure from East Lansing comes in redshirt junior quarterback Theo Day, who becomes the ninth player to leave the program since Saturday’s spring practice finale, and 25th player overall from last season’s roster.
Saturday’s televised spring football practice/game saw Anthony Russo, Payton Thorne, Noah Kim and Hamp Fay all take more snaps than Day. After three seasons in East Lansing and just two appearances in games (both in 2019), it was clear where he stood in the pecking order.
In Day’s only game throwing the ball against Penn State in the 2019 season, he completed two of three passes for 12 yards late in a disaster of a game that saw Brian Lewerke and Rocky Lombardi get sent to the bench throughout the afternoon.
Day came into the program as the No. 17-ranked pro style quarterback prospect per 247Sports Composite. The former Dearborn Divine Child star was the No. 7-ranked player in the state of Michigan for the 2018 recruiting class.
