Hondo Carpenter of SpartanNation.com first reported Friday morning that long snapper Matt Giampapa will transfer out of the MSU football program.
MLive later confirmed the news with MSU.
Giampapa's decision doesn't come as a complete surprise, as the writing appeared to be on the wall. After earning a scholarship as a freshman walk-on player last year, Giampapa was suspended for the Outback Bowl. Last month, MSU offered a late scholarship to 2012 Saline long snapper Taybor Pepper, who quickly took up the offer instead of walking-on at Michigan.
Steve Moore, who did the long snapping in the Outback Bowl, did the same in last week's Spring Game.
MSU told MLive that Giampapa wants to move closer to home. Giampapa is from Jackson, Tenn. A decision on where to transfer has not been made.
