The Michigan State Spartans lost a player on Thursday, but it won't be a move that gets much press. As announced on Twitter by Scout.com's Allen Trieu, former Michigan State defensive back Dana Dixon will transfer to Grand Valley State for the 2013 season.

A junior, Dixon didn't play very much for the Spartans after redshirting and then appearing in only 15 games in his freshman and sophomore seasons. His highest ever stat count in a game was a three tackle effort against Indiana.
He was set to make a move from cornerback to wide receiver this season for the Spartans.
