DeAnthony Arnett Will Transfer To Michigan State, According To Report

DeAnthony Arnett has chosen to transfer to the Michigan St. Spartans after Tennessee Volunteers head coach Derek Dooley allowed the receiver to transfer close to home and be with his ailing father. Arnett made the decision on Wednesday after visiting the East Lansing campus and meeting with head coach Mark Dantonio, reports Scout.com's Allen Trieu. The Michigan Wolverines were another option for Arnett after he was granted his release.

Arnett was a top-15 wide receiver recruit in the 2011 class and almost chose the Spartans over the Volunteers before he decided to head to the South. Now that he has chosen Michigan State, Arnett will either need to redshirt for a year, sitting out his true sophomore year, or apply for an NCAA hardship waiver to play this coming fall, as ESPN's Joe Schad reports.

Arnett hauled in 24 catches for 242 yards and touchdowns in 2011.
