Arnett's Waiver Granted by NCAA
On Thursday morning, Michigan State announced via Twitter that wide receiver DeAnthony Arnett will be suiting up to play for the Green and White when the 2012 season begins.
The tweet sent out by Spartan Football read, "The NCAA has granted WR DeAnthony Arnett's request for a residence waiver, so he will be eligible to play in 2012."
Arnett, the Saginaw native, was ranked as a top 100 national recruit by many recruiting services as a part of the 2011 class. He spent his first year at Tennessee, where he caught 24 passes for 242 yards and two TDs.
Following his freshman season, he transferred from Tennessee to enroll in classes at Michigan State to be closer to his ailing father. Arnett participated fully in spring football and caught one ball for 5 yards in the spring game.
With the loss of B.J. Cunningham, Keshawn Martin and Keith Nichol, the Spartans will be looking for a few young receivers to step in and fill the void for a retooled passing game that includes first year starting quarterback Andrew Maxwell at the helm.
Back in February, Arnett spoke with the media about his transfer.
