Seven MSU players transfer following Saturday’s ‘Spring Game’


EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)– Michigan State’s football team held its annual ‘Green and White’ spring game over the weekend and now that it’s over coach Mel Tucker is sitting down and having some conversations with some players about their future in East Lansing.

It’s why there was so much movement from within the program on Monday. As of 6 p.m. the Spartans had five players enter their name into the transfer portal and it all started with redshirt freshman tight end Tommy Guajardo. Additionally, seven players have now entered their name into the portal since the conclusion of Saturday’s spring game.

Players who’ve entered the transfer portal since Saturday, April 24th:

  • Damon Kaylor, Redshirt Sophomore, Offensive Line
  • Tommy Guajardo, Redshirt Freshman, Tight End
  • Jack Olsen, Freshman, Kicker
  • Justin Stevens Redshirt Freshman, Offensive Line
  • Bryce Eimer, Redshirt Freshman, Long Snapper
  • DeAri Todd, Redshirt Senior, Defensive End
  • Chris Mayfield, Redshirt Freshman, Defensive Tackle

While transfers come with the territory, the number of those entering the portal following the spring game might suggest a correlation between the two.

MSU football coach Mel Tucker has not made comments on the moves specifically, but did suggest there would be a number of those looking elsewhere in the coming weeks.

None of the five players who entered the portal on Monday have appeared in a game for the Spartans.
