Michigan State lands transfer commitment from experienced defensive lineman
Michigan State picked up a transfer commitment from former Colorado defensive lineman Jalen Sami on Wednesday.
Sami spent the past 4 seasons at Colorado. He was a contributor in all 4 years and is coming off of his best campaign with the Buffaloes. He started all 12 games for Colorado last season.
Here’s his announcement:

Last season, Sami recorded a career-high 28 tackles and 3 tackles for loss for Colorado. He has 6 tackles for loss, 2 sacks and 2 forced fumbles in his career.
He joins a Michigan State defensive front that will be looking to create more havoc in 2023. Last year, the Spartans ranked 6th in the Big Ten in both sacks and tackles for loss.
Sami is the 14th transfer to commit to Michigan State so far this offseason. The Spartans have added players at numerous positions throughout their squad, but perhaps nowhere more than on the defensive line. Sami is Michigan State’s 4th incoming defensive line transfer so far.
Sami has 1 year of eligibility remaining.
