Former Michigan State DE heading to ACC program via transfer
Former Michigan State defensive end Jack Camper has found a place to finish out his career in college football. He’ll be heading to Virginia for the upcoming season.
Camper made the announcement in a post on Twitter over the weekend. He was a 3-star member of Michigan State’s 2017 recruiting class, initially arriving in East Lansing as a tight end out of high school. He then made the transition to defensive end.
After spending five seasons in East Lansing, Camper elected to hit the NCAA transfer portal. He will have one season of eligibility to use with the Cavaliers.
“I want to thank God and Coach (Tony) Elliott for the opportunity to continue my academic and athletic career at the University of Virginia,” Camper wrote on Twitter.

Camper appeared in 27 career games for the Spartans but saw action in just 2 contests in 2021. His best year at MSU came in 2020, when he played in all 7 games and was credited with a career-best 18 tackles. The defensive end also had 2 tackles for loss and a fumble recovery.
Over the course of his career at Michigan State, Camper tallied 29 stops, 4.5 tackles for loss and a sack. His transfer to Virginia will be a homecoming of sorts, as he’s a native of Virginia Becah.
Michigan State closed out the 2021 season with an 11-2 record.
