Michigan State junior running back Connor Heyward confirms he has placed his name in the NCAA Transfer Portal and is headed elsewhere. Heyward likely would have two years of eligibility remaining. Last week MSU junior linebacker Brandon Bouyer Randle announced he is transferringout. Heyward lost his starting job several games ago to true freshman Elijah Collins. He caught a touchdown pass in the season opening game against Tulsa. Heyward is a Georgia native and did not play against Indiana this past week end for what coach Mark Dantonio called "personal reasons."
