Miles Bridges will play for No. 1 Michigan State on Sunday at Wisconsin. In a statement on Saturday, interim athletic director Bill Beekman said the university consulted with the NCAA before clearing the MSU star. “After learning of the allegations in yesterday’s Yahoo! Sports article, our compliance office conducted a thorough internal review. Michigan State presented its findings to the NCAA, and Miles Bridges has been cleared for competition moving forward, beginning Sunday at Wisconsin,” Beekman said. The clearance comes a day after two Yahoo! Sports reports connected Bridges and his mother, Cynthia, to the sweeping and ongoing investigation that uncovered fraud, bribery and corruption in college basketball in September, days before practice began for the 2017-18 season. The Yahoo reports cited expense reports from Saginaw native Christian Dawkins, the disgraced former middle man for NBA agent Andy Miller and his ASM Sports agency, that outlined $470 that could be deemed as impermissible benefits by the NCAA.
