The son of former NFL All-Pro tight end Antonio Gates has entered the transfer portal.

Antonio Gates Jr. was a redshirt freshman wide receiver at Michigan State last season. He had 5 catches for 82 yards and a touchdown in 12 games, and he appears to be looking for a new opportunity.

Gates may be looking for a chance to earn more playing time. He saw most of his action last season on special teams and was a limited contributor to the offense.

Michigan State receivers coach Courtney Hawkins recently talked up Gates and said the wide receiver had a “really good spring.”

Despite the positive comments from Hawkins, Gates felt motivated to transfer.

Gates Jr. had 55 catches for 925 yards and 16 touchdowns as a high school senior, which helped him earn a 4-star prospect ranking.
