Michigan State DT Chris Mayfield Enters Transfer Portal

Michigan State redshirt freshman defensive tackle Chris Mayfield entered the transfer portal on Monday alongside four other players.

EAST LANSING – Michigan State's roster turnover isn't over yet.

After the Spartan's final spring practice, seven players entered the transfer portal, including redshirt freshman defensive tackle Chris Mayfield, confirmed by a team spokesperson.

"I want to thank my friends and family for helping me get to the point that I am at today, he wrote via Twitter. "I would also like to thank Michigan State University and the coaching staff for helping me become a better football player and a man."

The former three-star recruit out of Ohio didn't play last season, and MSU returned four of its top five defensive tackles from last year.
