Some big news happened this week with the San José State Spartans football program as they gained two players via the transfer portal with experience.
The former UCLA Bruins safety, Elisha Guidry, announced that he has committed to SJSU as a graduate transfer. Guidry entered the transfer portal on April 22nd.
Guidry appeared in 28 games (11 starts) for UCLA. During his time with the Bruins he had 41 tackles, three passes defended, a split sack and a fumble recovery.
Guidry was a 3-star recruit coming out of high school in 2018 and received eight offers, including an offer from SJSU.
The other player that the Spartans got via the transfer portal, which I think is an under the radar addition, is offensive tackle Malik Williams.
Williams is a 2020 graduate of Hayward High School in Hayward, California and was a 3-star recruit, per 247Sports, coming out of high school. Williams had a few offers, including Wyoming and Dixie State (who was Division 2 and then moved to Division 1 FCS in 2020 and became Utah Tech this year). Williams chose Wyoming.
After redshirting in his true freshman season, Williams appeared in one game in 2021 and entered the transfer portal on March 22. Williams initially committed to Contra Costa College before committing to San José State.
Both Guidry and Williams are players that could provide valuable experience to positions that were depleted after the 2021 season from graduating seniors.
