Just a few hours after Michigan State trotted off the field to close out its annual spring game on Saturday, an offensive lineman announced his decision to enter his name into the NCAA transfer portal.

Saturday night, Justin Stevens revealed on Twitter that he has decided to look for opportunities outside of East Lansing. The offensive lineman was a member of Michigan State’s 2020 recruiting class but opted out of last season because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

He did not play a snap for the Spartans.

“After discussion with both my coaches and family I think it would be best for me to enter my name into the transfer portal,” Stevens wrote on Twitter. “I want to thank Coach (Mark) Dantonio and Coach (Mel) Tucker for giving me this opportunity, and all the other coaches at Michigan State for their countless time and effort.

“I am excited to start this next chapter and find my new home.”

Stevens is a 6-foot-6, 295-pound offensive lineman out of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. He was a 3-star prospect in the 2020 recruiting class and committed to Michigan State over offers from 11 other programs. Other schools that showed interest included UConn, Eastern Michigan, Buffalo, Coastal Carolina, Indiana , UMass, Northern Illinois, Syracuse and Toledo at the FBS level.

Stevens will have all four years of eligibility remaining at his next destination.

The Spartans finished the 2020 season with a 2-5 record.
