Payton Thorne went on Twitter to send Michigan State fans a proper goodbye on Thursday. Thorne entered the portal on Apr. 30 after spending his entire college career in East Lansing.

Thorne appeared in 29 games for the Spartans from 2019-2022. Thorne become the starting QB for the 2021 season and helped the team win 16 games in the role.

Here’s what Thorne had to say about Michigan State:

“Spartan fans, I want to thank you for the support you’ve given me over these past four years. Playing as a Spartan has been a blessing since day one. The relationships that I’ve developed over these past years will be some that last a lifetime. I would like to thank Coach Tucker for these past few years. With that being said, life can change quick, and my days at Michigan State have come to a close. I will forever be a Spartan.”

Michigan State had a disappointing 5-7 season in 2022 after winning 11 games the year before. Thorne had 6,493 yards passing with 55 total touchdowns and 24 interceptions as a Spartan.

Thorne was a former 3-star QB from the 2018 class per the 247Sports Composite. The Napierville, Illinois native has now officially moved on from East Lansing.

It’ll be interesting to see where he ends up.
