It was announced Wednesday that redshirt junior linebacker Brandon Bouyer-Randle will enter the NCAA transfer portal. The Battle Creek native, who also plays defensive end, has played in 30 career games for the green and white, including all four this season, logging thirty one total tackles to go along with four and a half sacks and two forced fumbles.
Bouyer-Randle registered three total tackles in the Spartan’s 31-10 victory over Northwestern last week. He’s part of a talented linebacker group, one that includes senior Tyriq Thompson and reigning Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week Joe Bachie, who is also a senior.
Under the current NCAA transfer portal rules, which were put in place in 2018, players are allowed to enter themselves without consulting their respective program. Bouyer-Randle will still be an active member of the team and be able to participate in all related activities, but is also allowed to talk to coaches of other college programs at the same time.
Bouyer-Randle is still listed on the team’s most current depth chart as the team gets ready for its’ homecoming game Sep. 28 against Indiana.
