Michigan State football will be heavily involved in the transfer portal this offseason and Jonathan Smith has already landed a number of players on the market.

In fact, he has picked up commitments from guys like Aidan Chiles, Jordan Turner, Jack Velling, TJ Sheffield, Quindarius Dunnigan, and Kaden Schickel. He has also convinced other guys like Derrick Harmon, Geno VanDeMark, Ethan Boyd, Brandon Baldwin, and Jaron Glover to stay. Those are all as good as portal wins, in my opion.

Now he's working on filling out his 2024 class with portal additions.

Over the weekend, Smith extended an offer to Louisville defensive line transfer Jeffery Clark who has spent time with both the Cardinals (2023) and Georgia State (2020-22). He has had a very productive college career to this point and he's looking to use his final year of eligibility at a new program.

Michigan State could use that kind of player in 2024.

Clark had 14 tackles and two tackles for loss in 14 games with the Cardinals last season, but he had a career-best 39 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, and 4.5 sacks in 2022 with Georgia State. He clearly has potential, but he's looking for the right situation.

Michigan State brings back Harmon as well as some other key pieces like Andrew Depaepe, Bai Jobe (hopefully), and Jalen Thompson. There's also a chance that Smith could convince Zion Young to return to East Lansing as well. The depth is an issue, however, and Clark could change that.

This will be an interesting recruitment to watch.
