The Detroit Free Press is reporting that Michigan State sophomore running back La'Darius Jefferson (pictured, #15) has decided the enter the NCAA transfer portal.

Jefferson joins former Spartans Connor Heyward and Brandon Bouyer-Randle in the transfer portal.

He was an All-State quarterback at Muskegon High School in 2017, leading the Big Reds to a Division 3 state title that season.  He was voted Mr. Football in the state of Michigan as well.
