The churn of the transfer portal is especially active in East Lansing this time of year.

According to Rainer Sabin of The Detroit Free Press, Trenton Gillison put his name in the portal on Friday, joining reserve offensive lineman James Ohonba. Both were Class of 2018 signees at Michigan State who served primarily in reserve roles this past season for the Spartans.

Gillison, a 6-foot-4 junior tight end, spent four years in East Lansing. At points throughout the 2019 and 2020 seasons, he drew spot starts at tight end. But, this season with converted running back Connor Heyward, former punter Tyler Hunt and redshirt freshman transfer Maliq Carr sitting ahead of him on the depth chart, Gillison appeared sparingly in only 6 games.

A former 4-star recruit from the 2018 cycle, Gillison produced 18 catches and 201 receiving yards during his career in East Lansing.

The Spartans so far have seen 10 players enter the portal since September, according to Sabin. Michigan State has been active in pulling players from the portal as well. The team is preparing for its Peach Bowl matchup with Pittsburgh on Dec. 30.
