Michigan State backup QB Messiah DeWeaver, announced via his Twitter account after MSU's Holiday Bowl victory last week, that he is transferring from the school.

DeWeaver, a redshirt freshman, was a backup to starting QB Brian Lewerke in the 2017 season.  Messiah appeared in two games in 2017, he did not throw a pass but had a 20-yard run during his brief time under center.  He was slated to be the primary backup to Lewerke in the 2018 season.
