Ben Carter will get a chance to play for Michigan State after all.

The NCAA granted the graduate transfer forward a sixth year of eligibility today after Carter suffered a knee injury that kept him out all of the 2016-17 season.

“I honestly didn’t know if the waiver would be granted,” Carter said in a release, “but I kept praying that I would be able to play one more year of college basketball.”

The 6-foot-9, 225-pound forward from Las Vegas suffered his first knee injury in January of 2016 while playing in his only season at UNLV. He arrived at MSU last summer after the Spartans lost Deyonta Davis to the NBA Draft and Marvin Clark and Javon Bess to transfer after the 2015-16 season.
