Boise State defensive back DeAndre Pierce has put his name in the NCAA transfer portal, becoming the sixth member of the team to do so.

As a graduate transfer, he would be eligible to play immediately at a different school in 2020.

Pierce, who played at Long Beach Poly High School in California, went to Boise State as a three-star prospect in the Class of 2016 and played in 12 games as a freshman. In 2017, he played in 14 games (11 starts) and was an honorable mention All-Mountain West Conference selection.

He was limited to just nine games the past two seasons because of injuries, including being redshirted in 2018 after four games. In all, he played in 35 games for the Broncos, recording 144 tackles, a sack and an interception.

He joins cornerback Ozziah Williams, inside linebacker Keegan Duncan, defensive end Kukea Emmsley, wide receiver DK Blaylock and quarterback Kaiden Bennett as Boise State’s entrants into the transfer portal.

Pierce’s father, former NFL linebacker Antonio Pierce, is the co-defensive coordinator under Herm Edwards at Arizona State.
