Sophomore guard Davis Smith announced via his Twitter that he will be entering the transfer portal. Smith, the son of MSU legend Steve Smith, walked on to the Spartans for the 2020-21 season before receiving a scholarship for his sophomore season.

Smith joins walk-on freshman Peter Nwoke, who entered his name in the transfer portal earlier this week. 

Smith was largely reserved to a spot on the bench over his two years as a Spartan. Davis appeared in 12 of MSU’s 36 games this year during blowouts and averaged 1.5 minutes per game. Nwoke did not appear in a game this season for MSU.
