Michigan State declared Miles Bridges ineligible Friday after an internal investigation revealed his family members had dinner with an agent, which is an NCAA violation. A statement from the university Monday clarified that it discovered during its probe Bridges did not know his family members had a $40 dinner with an unnamed agent in the winter of the 2016-17 season, his freshman season. MSU applied for reinstatement with the NCAA and was told Saturday afternoon that Bridges had been cleared to play the rest of the season. According to MSU, as part of his reinstatement process, Bridges was required to pay the value of the dinner to a charity of his choice. “While it is not unusual for reinstatement cases to be handled within a day, Michigan State appreciates the NCAA taking swift action,” said Matt Larson, MSU’s associate athletic director for communications.
