Second Michigan State transfer announces Memphis as next destination
Two former Michigan State players announced intentions to transfer to Memphis on Monday morning.
The first was former 4-star offensive lineman Devontae Dobbs. He’s since been joined by former 3-star cornerback Julian Barnett.
Here’s Barnett’s announcement:

Both players attended the same high school near Detroit, so it’s not a surprise to see them go on their next destination together as well.
These are also nice additions for Memphis, who also added transfers D’Wan Mathis and Amad Anderson earlier this month.
Tucker appears to be trying to get as many of his own hand-picked players into this program as possible, as quickly as he can. Tucker’s first season in East Lansing was a bit of a disappointment, despite landmark wins over Michigan and Northwestern.
Michigan State went just 2-5 this season and finished last in the Big Ten East.
