One day after losing six backup players to the transfer portal, Michigan State football picked up a notable transfer on Tuesday (according to media reports).

He is linebacker Quavaris Crouch (pictured, #27), who played the last two seasons with the University of Tennessee Volunteers.  He'll likely have three years of eligibility when he comes to play for the Spartans (with 2020 being a "free" year because of COVID-19).

Crouch will join a linebacking crew that lost senior Antjuan Simmons to the NFL Draft, but still has Noah Harvey on the roster.  They will also have Michigan transfer Ben Van Sumeren on the roster this fall.

Crouch decided to enter the portal after Tennessee fired their head coach, Jeremy Pruitt after last season's 3-7 campaign.
