Michigan State Basketball's Garrick Sherman To Transfer

Michigan State sophomore center Garrick Sherman has decided to leave the basketball program and become the latest Spartan player to transfer. The move to transfer was announced by Michigan State in a press release on Monday. Tom Izzo had this to say about the decision:

"I met with every player after the season about making a commitment to the program and each other," head coach Tom Izzo said in the release. "After spending some time at home and talking with his family, Garrick Sherman has informed me that it’s important to get a fresh start elsewhere. We appreciate his contributions over the last two seasons and wish him the best in his basketball future.

"I continue to look forward to this offseason as we develop with players committed to Spartan basketball."

Sherman echoed what Izzo had to say, stating this:

"I have enjoyed my two years at Michigan State," Sherman said in the release. "I love my teammates and coaches and appreciate the way they helped me develop as a player.

"After the season, I met with Coach Izzo and after talking things over with my family, I believe it’s time for a fresh start and a new opportunity."

It's not clear where Sherman will transfer yet. One could joke that the early leader is Iowa State considering former Spartans Chris Allen and Korie Lucious transferred there. You could also throw out UCF, where former MSU center Tom Herzog transferred a year ago, although I would bet on him going to a school in one of the power conferences.
