EAST LANSING – Michigan State football landed two transfer cornerbacks in one day.

Khary Crump, a former Arizona defensive back, entered the transfer portal after his freshman season and committed to MSU Saturday afternoon.

"Appreciate the opportunity; I am committed to Michigan State, Spartan Dog able to come home," Crump wrote via Twitter.

The former three-star prospect out of California signed with Arizona in 2020 but didn't play as a freshman. According to The Arizona Republic, Crump left the team in November prior to entering the portal in January.

Crump, a 5-foot-11, 164-pound corner, becomes MSU's 11th transfer, including Anthony Russo (Temple), Drew Jordan (Duke), Jarrett Horst (Arkansas State), Kenneth Walker III (Wake Forest), Kendall Brooks (North Greenville), and Spencer Rowland (Wheaton College).

The Spartans picked up four players this month in Chester Kimbrough (Florida), Marqui Lowery Jr. (Louisville), Ben VanSumeren (Michigan), and Crump.

Harold Joiner, a talented running back from Auburn, committed to Michigan State in December but has yet to enroll.

MSU has also lost 17 student-athletes to the portal since mid-November.
