Another Michigan State guard hits transfer portal
Michigan State has seen another guard enter the NCAA transfer portal.
According to Chris Solari of the Detroit Free Press, Foster Loyer has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal and will explore his options outside of East Lansing. Loyer is a junior guard out of Clarkston.
Last season, Loyer appeared in 19 games for the Spartans, including 7 starts. He averaged 4.2 points and 2.3 assists per contest as Michigan State extended its NCAA Tournament streak to 23 straight seasons.
Loyer shot 29% from the floor and 33% from behind the 3-point line.
Multiple Spartans from the 2020-21 team have entered their name into the NCAA transfer portal this offseason. He is the third guard, joining Rocket Watts and Jack Hoiberg to explore options outside of East Lansing. Forward Thomas Kithier is also transferring out of the program.
Aaron Henry has declared for the NBA Draft and Joshua Langford is retiring from basketball, meaning Michigan State will be welcoming a lot of new faces to the floor next season. A lot of the experience and leadership from last year’s squad will be playing elsewhere.
Loyer could still return to Michigan State if it’s in his best interest. However, a limited number of student-athletes choose to return to their previous institution after entering the transfer portal.
