Michigan State welcomes graduate transfer

One of rare players to play for three different schools will suit up for Tom Izzo

According to the Associated Press and other key media outlets, the Spartans received some good news on Tuesday in replacing their latest gem of an athlete in 2016 Big Ten Player of the Year Denzel Valentine.

Forward Ben Carter who recently played at UNLV, will arrive as a graduate transfer and is therefore eligible to play this coming November.  He made seven starts while playing in 22 games this past season, averaging 8.6 points per game and 6 rebounds per game before suffering a knee injury on January 30 which prematurely ended a promising senior season.  He had to sit out during the entire 2014-2015 season after transferring following his sophomore year at Oregon.

Other transfers of note

Former Valparaiso forward David Skara on May 25 left the proud Northwest Indiana school and will transfer with other key transfers to Clemson, while Minnesota forward Charles Buggs managed to earn his degree and will continue to play as a graduate transfer.
