Michigan State Football: Spartans add three transfers to 2017 roster

Michigan State football made some changes to the roster, including adding three transfers this offseason.

With Big Ten Media Days kicking off Monday, the release of Michigan State football’s 2017 preseason roster also made its rounds. Fortunately, the Spartans haven’t lost any more players due to off-field issues or transfers, but that doesn’t mean the roster hasn’t changed.

In fact, it looks like Michigan State has added a few transfers. It looks like former Austin Peay quarterback Mickey Macius is now on the roster, replacing Colar Kuhns as the fourth quarterback. Also making the roster are Tommy Liesveld and Noah Sargent.

It’s unlikely Macius will see the field in the green and white, but it’s always nice to add depth, especially with a guy who has college experience.

Liesveld will provide more depth on the offensive line and Sargent, a Flint-native, could be a solid scout team player and potential earn some time down the line. Both are Saginaw Valley State transfers.

Those three weren’t the only new additions on the roster, though, as it looks like the Spartans added a potential kick returner in Andre Welch from East Kentwood. He’s also a track star.

Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio looks to be on track to filling out the roster yet again and adding decent transfers and a potential walk-on is a step in the right direction.

Will there be more changes before the season begins? Right now, it looks like this will be the final roster until fall.
