EAST LANSING – A Michigan State basketball player entered the transfer portal Wednesday afternoon. 

MSU guard Jack Hoiberg was listed in the portal, meaning other universities can contact him. 

"Excited to announce I am entering the transfer portal," he wrote via Twitter. "I'm thankful for all of the great experiences and everything that I have learned at MSU. A huge thank you to my coaches and the friends I've met along the way. Looking forward to my next chapter. I'll be a Spartan for life!"

Hoiberg didn't carve out a vast in-game role at Michigan State, but he ran the Spartans' scout team. 

He experienced meaningful minutes after Foster Loyer's shoulder injury, playing a total of 13 minutes against Michigan and Maryland. Overall, Hoiberg played in 41 contests and scored 10 points. 

The 5-foot-11 redshirt junior was placed on scholarship prior to the 2020-21 season. As it stands, the Spartans need one more scholarship to open up through attrition.   

Michigan State finished the season 15-13 overall and 9-11 in conference play. It was a down year for MSU, but they received an NCAA tournament berth before making an early exit from the First Four.
