Michigan State QB the latest to hit NCAA transfer portal
A Michigan State quarterback has become the latest of a flurry to hit the NCAA transfer portal since the spring practice schedule wrapped up over the weekend.
Rainer Sabin of the Detroit Free Press reported that quarterback Theo Day has entered his name into the portal. He is the ninth Spartan since Saturday’s spring game/open practice to start exploring options outside of East Lansing.
Day has spent three seasons at Michigan State but didn’t see much game action during his time with the program. He did not play last season and redshirted his first season on campus in 2018.
The only game action Day saw came during the 2019 campaign. He played in two games, hitting the field against Western Michigan and Penn State that year. The quarterback totaled 12 yards while completing 2-of-3 passes and added 1 rushing yard on 2 carries.
Day was behind Payton Thorne and Anthony Russo on the depth chart and those two appeared to be the top contenders to win the starting job this fall. Day’s best opportunity to see time on the field might be outside of East Lansing.
Using his redshirt year in 2018 and with the NCAA’s blanket waiver for all fall student-athletes in 2020, Day will still have three seasons of eligibility remaining at his next destination.
