Syracuse QB Tommy DeVito will enter transfer portal

Syracuse football quarterback Tommy DeVito will enter the transfer portal, he announced on Twitter Sunday night. The fifth-year signal-caller leaves the program four weeks after he lost the starting job to Mississippi State transfer Garrett Shrader.

DeVito started SU’s first three contests this fall, completing 61.5 percent of his passes for 388 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. Then about two hours before the team was scheduled to kick off against Liberty in Week 4, head coach Dino Babers told the quarterbacks that Shrader would get the nod that evening.

DeVito hasn’t played since, watching from the sideline as Syracuse has played four consecutive down-to-the-wire games.
