The Michigan State Spartans are graduating one of the most decorated senior classes in school history, but they have already received some good news about potential replacements for the departing seniors. Tennessee Volunteers wide receiver DeAnthony Arnett has decided that he will transfer to the Spartans, reports George Sipple of the Detroit Free Press.
Arnett stayed just one season in Knoxville because he wanted to return home to be with his ailing father. But he might might be able to play immediately.
Arnett was a top-15 wide receiver recruit in the 2011 class and almost chose the Spartans over the Volunteers before he decided to head to the South. Now that he has chosen Michigan State, Arnett will either need to redshirt for a year, sitting out his true sophomore year, or apply for an NCAA hardship waiver to play this coming fall, as ESPN's Joe Schad reports.
Arnett caught 24 passes for 242 yards in 2011
