The offseason is here for Michigan State football, and roster turnover is already underway as the Spartans look to flush a disappointing 5-7 campaign in 2022.

Late Saturday night, MSU defensive lineman Michael Fletcher entered his name into the transfer portal. A redshirt junior, Fletcher struggled to work his way into the rotation along the D-line during his four years in East Lansing.

For his career, Fletcher tallied 31 tackles, including four tackles for loss and three sacks. He added two pass breakups and a blocked kick.

Fletcher appeared in eight games for the Spartans this season, totaling 13 tackles.
