  12/22/20 - Julian BarnettSo/2023, Memphis, 6-1, 190 (DS#999 CB) + More +

  Memphis football is getting two additions from Michigan via the transfer portal. Michigan State offensive lineman Devontae Dobbs and cornerback Julian Barnett both announced Monday via Twitter they're transferring to the Tigers. Both were four-star recruits who signed with the Spartans in 2019 out of Belleville High School. Dobbs, who is 6-foot-5 and 305 pounds, played four games in 2019, including one start at left tackle. He didn't play this season as Spartans offensive line coach Chris Kapilovic told reporters that Dobbs was hurt but also needed to improve in some areas. Barnett played wide receiver in 2019 and appeared in every game with 13 catches for 182 yards. He returned to defensive back this season but while he appeared in six games, he was used on defense in just two games and mostly played on special teams. - Memphis Commercial Appeal

  The top-rated recruit in Michigan State football's 2019 signing class is planning a move to another program. Offensive lineman Devontae Dobbs, a former four-star prospect from Belleville, has entered the NCAA transfer portal, the Free Press has learned. The 6-foot-5, 305-pounder played in four games as a true freshman in 2019, allowing him to take a redshirt, but he also started at left tackle against Rutgers. He was not in uniform for a game at all this season. Offensive line coach Chris Kapilovic on Dec. 1 said Dobbs, along with senior offensive lineman Luke Campbell, were hurt but alluded to performance issues.

"Those guys are trying to work through some injuries and work through just getting improvement," Kapilovic said. "I don't know if we'll see them this year. But hopefully, if we don't see them this year, that we'll definitely see some improvements and see them next year." Dobbs' high school teammate and classmate, Julian Barnett, preceded Dobbs out of MSU and into the portal on Dec. 10. And with linebacker Luke Fulton also opting to leave, the Spartans' top three recruits from Mark Dantonio's 2019 class all have entered the portal during Tucker's first year. Dobbs is the sixth MSU player to enter the transfer portal since Nov. 16. Entering the portal does not necessarily mean a player is leaving, however. - Lansing State Journal
