After seeing a dip in his playing time and numbers this season for the Michigan State Spartans, sophomore forward Marvin Clark Jr. will reportedly transfer.
He has two years of eligibility remaining.
Michigan State confirms that Marvin Clark will transfer. Wish him the best, he was key in Final Four run from last year. #MSUFeatured Videos

Marvin Clark didn't have the greatest sophomore season, but he has great potential. Sad to see him go. Wish him the best wherever he goes.

The 6-foot-6, 225-pound Kansas City product averaged better than 11 minutes per game, totaling 4.5 points and 2.2 rebounds per game. He averaged nearly 12 minutes in MSU’s Final Four run last season. However, his minutes were cut down drastically this season. He played in nine less games than he did his freshman year and averaged less than 10 minutes in those 30 games.
Clark has a lot of potential and room to improve both inside and out. His depth off the bench will surely be missed by Tom Izzo and the rest of the Spartans.
The move coincidentally opens up one scholarship spot for MSU in 2016. The brings about speculation about the nation’s top-ranked undecided high school prospect, Napa, California standout and Detroit-native Josh Jackson, who lists the Spartans as one of three powerhouse programs he is considering to sign with, along with Arizona and Kansas.
