Mississippi State is expected to lose one of its top playmakers to the transfer portal.

Jo’quavious “Woody” Marks is headed for the portal, according to Matt Zenitz of 247 Sports. He appeared in 9 games this past season before an injury forced him to the sidelines.

Marks was a 4-year starter with the Bulldogs as his first start came midway through the 2020 season.

Marks this season returned after an absence to excel against Southern Miss. Marks showcased his skills receiving and running, as he posted 49 yards of total offense and hauled in a 15-yard touchdown catch.

Despite his absence, Marks still led the Bulldogs in rushing with 573 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Last season, Marks appeared in 12 of the teams 13 games with 7 starts and led the team in rushing attempts (113), rushing yards (582), and rushing touchdowns (9). He also had a career-high 9 touchdowns on the ground
