Michigan State has added Kee’yon Stewart via the transfer portal with a commitment. The 6’0 and 185-pounder played four years for TCU and was a part of the team that beat Michigan in the College Football Playoffs.
Kee’yon Stewart’s Breakdown
Kee’yon Stewart has dealt with multiple injuries throughout his time with the Horned Frogs but was able to play in 13 games in 2022. He would finish with 46 tackles in 26 games and a pick during his time with TCU. Coming out of high school, Stewart was the 12th-ranked cornerback in the state of Texas and the 100th overall.
Outlook of the Roster with Kee’yon Stewart
Michigan State has been struggling to improve talent-wise on the offensive side of the football, but defensively with the return of Charles Brantley from the portal. With the additions of Armorion Smith and now Stewart MSU now has two more pieces in their secondary.
At the moment, it’s unclear what role Stewart will play for Michigan State, but nonetheless, it adds another solid depth piece with experience to the roster. Stewart’s highlights are pretty impressive from his time with TCU, and he made an impact at times and could potentially do that for MSU.
The secondary has been a concern for Michigan State since Mel Tucker took over in 2020. Tucker was a DB at Wisconsin and is focused on improving the secondary to make it one of MSU’s strengths in the future. The concern isn’t the defense but more the offense after the losses of Keon Coleman and Payton Thorne to the transfer portal. It will be interesting to see how MSU decides to handle their remaining roster spots and if they prioritize offense moving forward.
