Michigan State freshman Kenny Kaminski will redshirt this season after undergoing his second shoulder surgery in under ten months.

Michigan State Spartans freshman forward Kenny Kaminski will miss four to six months and is expected to redshirt this season after his second shoulder surgery in just 10 months. Kaminski tore his labrum on Aug. 1 in a different area than he tore it in November while playing high school football. He underwent surgery on Sept. 7.

Kaminski was just returning to form coming off his first shoulder surgery and said in July that he was nearly 100 percent, before his second injury. A 6'7" forward out of Medina High School in Ohio, Kaminksi was ranked No. 86 in the 2012 ESPN 100 recruiting rankings.

Michigan State finished the 2011-12 season with a 29-8 record, sharing the Big Ten regular season championship with Michigan and Ohio State, and winning the 2012 Big Ten Tournament. The Spartans lost to the Louisville Cardinals in the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament.
