Kline has 11 total tackles for the Spartans this season and was in on a sack of Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez in Week 4. He was listed as a 3-star recruit out of Ohio in the 2018 recruiting class, according to 247sports, and chose MSU over Minnesota, Purdue, Cincinnati and Boston College, among others.
Former Spartans coach Mark Dantonio recruited him, but Kline had a career year under Mel Tucker last season with 29 tackles and 2 forced fumbles. Kline didn’t specifically say why he’s departing the program.
Kline is one of two Michigan State players to enter the transfer portal Monday. Redshirt junior cornerback Kalon Gervin also put his name in the portal after he didn’t play against Nebraska on Saturday.
