East Lansing, Mich. – Chris Mayfield is heading home.
The former Michigan State defensive tackle announced his commitment to Ohio via Twitter on Wednesday afternoon. He entered the transfer portal on April 26.
"I am very grateful for all of the friends and memories I made at Michigan State, he said. "Also to be able to learn under a great coaching staff, but after entering the transfer portal and finding out what school is best for me, I have decided to commit to Ohio University, GO BOBCATS."
At 6-foot-2 and 285-pounds, Mayfield signed with MSU's 2020 recruiting class, which was the final one for former head coach Mark Dantonio.
Since November, the Spartans have had 27 players enter the portal, including 10 following Michigan State's spring game.
