Two Michigan State LBs hit transfer portal after September arrests
Michigan State linebackers Luke Fulton and Charles Hillekes were suspended from the Spartans’ football team in September following assault charges.
On Monday the pair announced they have entered the NCAA transfer portal.
Both redshirt freshman, Fulton and Willekes were disciplined five days prior to the season’s start, after both were arrested on Sept. 8 following an incident at a fraternity house in East Lansing. The two had been suspended from the program indefinitely.
Fulton is a 6-foot-4, 225-pound product of Youngstown, Ohio. A three-star recruit in the 2019 class, he didn’t play during the 2019 season.
Hillekes, the brother of two-time All-American Kenny Willekes, played in one game last season on the special teams unit during the Spartans game with Michigan.
Fulton and Willikes are now among five players to announce their intent to transfer this season. Michigan State also had four players opt-out of playing this season.
