Michigan State coach Tom Izzo has often decried the rise of transfers in college basketball, a trend that’s shot upward in recent years. As of mid-April, 325 players had suited up for multiple Division 1 teams, according to the Associated Press, nearly three times as many as a decade ago.

But one member of those expanding ranks could still find his way to East Lansing to play for the Spartans next year.

“I’m really disappointed in it,” Izzo said last week of the rising number of transfers. “But you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do,”

Michigan State still has one scholarship to fill for next season after the departure of Gary Harris, and could have more if Russell Byrd or Alex Gauna decide to leave East Lansing

Izzo said last week on The Game 730 AM in Lansing that the Spartans are planning on filling that spot.

“We’re figuring out whether we want to go big or go small,” Izzo said.

The regular signing period for high school recruits ends May 21, and all of Michigan State’s reported targets have signed letters of intent.

That’s led the Spartans to the transfer market. After missing out on Southern California graduate transfer Byron Wesley, the Spartans are reportedly in the mix for three other transfer candidates.
