“I have enjoyed my time spent here, but my time here has come to an end,” the 6-foot-2, 293-pound Smith said in the tweet.
Smith redshirted in 2014 and then played in three games in 2015. He recorded his first career tackle against Maryland.
Smith, who’s from Chicago, was a 3-star recruit.
The news is another recent hit for the Spartans’ defensive line. Last week, Michigan State granted Cassius Peat his release to allow him to transfer.
“Thank you to the fans that have supported me, even before I stepped foot on campus,” Smith said. “Spartan Nation has made a tremendous impact on my life and my family’s too.”
