Arizona State linebacker Rodney Groce first announced he would be coming to ASU in early December after spending just two seasons with Mississippi State.
Now, having passed spring training, Groce is looking to find his third team before the start of the 2022 season after entering the transfer portal.
Groce originally had four years of eligibility when he arrived in Arizona State, but he will likely have to wait a year if he is unable to obtain a waiver from the NCAA since he has already used his one-time transfer to leave Mississippi State.
Despite the departure of linebacker Eric Gentry, Groce reportedly struggled to find the field. Connor Soelle is expected to fill Gentry’s absence while his brother Kyle Soelle and Merlin Robertson are already lined up as starters for next season.
This may have factored into his decision to leave the program with a lot of remaining eligibility.
Will Shaffer, Caleb McCullough and Jaydon Williams are other linebackers on the roster right now.
Groce is now the eighth Arizona State player to transfer from the program since April 21 and the 20th player of the 2022 season to reach the gate.
