CB Charles Brantley Withdraws From Portal; Will Return To MSU
Sophomore cornerback Charles Brantley (pictured above) has withdrawn from the transfer portal and will return to Michigan State for his junior season, according to 247sports.com.
Brantley's withdrawl comes two days after he announced that he would enter the transfer portal. He along with quarterback Payton Thorne and wide receiver Keon Coleman announced that they were entering the portal on Sunday, the last day that college football players could enter the transfer portal.
The sophomore started 11 of the 12 games for the Spartans in 2022. He had one interception and 48 tackles. That interception was a pick-6 of Ohio State QB C.J. Stroud in the first half of that contest. But he is best known for the game-clinching interception against Michigan in MSU's 37-33 victory over the Wolverines in 2021 when he was a freshman.
Brantley tweeted out on Monday that he had received an offer from Colorado and Oklahoma to transfer there, but has decided to return to school in East Lansing.
Charles, at 6'0" and 160 lbs., was a three-star recruit out of Venice, Florida. He was listed as the 54th best cornerback in the class of 2021, according to spartanmag.com.
Brantley will have two years of eligibility left in East Lansing.
