Michigan State freshman WR Hunter Rison will transfer from the Spartans.

Rison (5'11/200) apparently will transfer looking for a bigger role in the offense. He'll have to sit out the 2019 season if he transfers to another FBS school. The son of former NFL star Andre Rison made 19 catches for 224 yards in 2017.

Michigan State senior C Brian Allen accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Allen (6'2/305) was considered one of the better centers in the class coming into the year, and didn't do anything to change that opinion in a season that saw Michigan State win 10 games and the Holiday Bowl. He's currently projected as a Day 3 selection by various draft outlets.
Jan 6 - 6:54 PM

Michigan State redshirt freshman QB Messiah deWeaver will transfer.

The 6-foot-4, 216-pound deWeaver was a four-star recruit for the 2016 cycle and redshirted his first year in East Lansing. With Brian Lewerke -- who started all 13 games for Sparty this year -- entrenching himself as starter, deWeaver will be looking for a more open path to seeing real on-field action with his next move. Should he transfer to another FBS outfit, he would have to sit out the 2018 season to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations.

Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott announced he will return to school for the 2018 season.

Scott rushed for 895 yards and eight touchdowns this season, posting close to the same totals he did in 2016. His pass catching production did rise, and that could be an important part of his evaluation in 2018.

Michigan State junior WR Felton Davis III caught four passes for 118 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 42-17 win over Washington State in the Holiday Bowl.

Davis (6'4/195) posted his third 100-yard receiving effort of the year, here, pacing the Spartans in receiving yardage against Washington State. He went off for a respectable 55-776-9 line for the campaign as a whole. This was Davis' most prolific offensive season by a fair margin. The former four-star recruit will try to back it up next year.

Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott rushed for 110 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries in Thursday's 42-17 win over Washington State in the Holiday Bowl.

Scott (6'0/233) scored from three yards out just before time ran out in the first half and looped back around for a 28-yard scoring scamper to put the final nail in Washington State's coffin midway through the fourth quarter. The junior back ends the year having rushed for 895 yards and eight touchdowns. He's kicked around a potential draft declaration -- that could be made in the coming days -- and would likely land as a Day 3 selection should he come out, but we've been unimpressed with his work this season and think he could help himself with another year in East Lansing.

Michigan State redshirt sophomore QB Brian Lewerke completed 13-of-21 passes for 213 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 73 yards in Thursday's 42-17 win over Washington State in the Holiday Bowl.

Lewerke (6'3/202) tossed two of his three touchdown passes in the second quarter as Sparty shook off the rust of a slow start to pound out a 21-3 halftime lead. This was his third game of at least three touchdown passes this season and his seventh with at least 50 yards rushing. On the whole, the redshirt junior ends the campaign having thrown for 2,793 yards with a 20/6 TD/INT ratio while chipping in with 562 yards and five touchdowns rushing. He won't blow your socks off on a play-by-play basis, but proved to be a steady enough presence, which was all Michigan State needed from him given their defense on the other side. The Spartans finish the year at 10-3, this coming one season after a 3-9 flat-lining.

Michigan State redshirt junior DE Robert Bowers is no longer a member of the football program.

Head coach Mark Dantonio did not elaborate. He only played 50 snaps this season and just 146 last season. Based on that limited playing time, expect him to move to another program rather than enter the NFL draft.

Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott will play in the Holiday Bowl against Washington State on Dec. 28, after which he will make a decision as to an NFL Draft declaration.

Scott (6'0/233) turned in a mostly disappointing regular-season campaign, rushing for 785 yards (4.3 YPC) and six touchdowns. He was also arrested for a seventh time for not having a valid driver's license -- that's since been rectified. We see little upside for Scott in declaring given the year that he just turned in. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline currently stamps him with a fifth-round grade.

Michigan State received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 CB Kalon Gervin.

This is the fifth time in the last eight cycles that the Spartans have netted Rivals' top prospect in the state of Michigan. Gervin (5'11/175) was also considering Oregon for his pledge (he took officials to the Ducks, Oklahoma and Nebraska). Rivals ranks him as the No. 106 overall prospect in the 2018 class. He's expected to sign on the bottom line later this month. He's a fluid, hard-nosed player, albeit one without a true top gear. He also needs more experience working in zone schemes, as the vast bulk of his experience comes in man-to-man coverage.

Michigan State redshirt sophomore QB Brian Lewerke completed 21-of-31 passes for 222 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 56 yards and an additional score in Saturday's 40-7 win over Rutgers.

Lewerke tossed a seven-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter and added a three-yard touchdown run in the fourth. He's accounted for 22 touchdowns overall this season while putting in a respectable -- if generally unspectacular -- week-in, week-out effort for the Spartans. Michigan State went 3-9 a year ago, but has flipped that record to 9-3 for the current campaign. Bowl glory awaits them, now.

Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott rushed for 147 yards on 29 carries with a touchdown in a 17-7 victory over Maryland on Saturday.

Over 100 of these 147 yards came in the first half. This was an ugly offensive football game, with neither team being able to throw the football effectively. Fortunately for the Spartans, the big effort from their star running back was enough to get the job done. His two-yard plunge into the end zone gave Michigan State a 7-0 lead midway through the first quarter. He and his Spartan teammates will look for win nine next week against Rutgers.

Michigan State junior RB LJ Scott rushed for 30 yards on eight carries in Saturday's 48-3 loss to Ohio State.

Nothing doing whatsoever for Scott -- or anybody on Sparty's offense -- in this one. The junior went off for 194 yards rushing against Minnesota in mid-October, but otherwise has not topped 90 yards on the ground in a game this season. He has not put his best foot forward for a potential draft declaration, not in the slightest.

Michigan State redshirt freshman TE Noah Davis (leg) is active for Saturday's game against Ohio State.

Davis returns after missing the last two games. Rated as one of the nation's top-20 tight ends coming out of high school by Rivals (No. 14) and ESPN (No. 19), Davis redshirted his first season on campus. He has only one catch this fall.

Michigan State junior WR Felton Davis III caught 12 passes for 181 yards and a touchdown during Michigan State's 27-24 upset win over Penn State on Saturday.

This game was delayed for at least three hours and Michigan State returned as the better team. Felton made a number of ridiculous catches, diving jump and extending with Penn State in good position. It was a career game for the junior, and his 33-yard touchdown was a thing of beauty as he completely levitated and laid out for a catch. No other Spartan had more than five catches.
