MSU still working on Arnett’s waiver
The status of the player who might be the No. 1 receiver for Michigan State this fall remains in the processing phase as Michigan State continues to put together paperwork.
The university has been working on the waiver regarding the eligibility DeAnthony Arnett, a wide receiver who transferred to Michigan State from Tennessee to be closer to his ailing father. If granted, the waiver would allow Arnett to be eligible immediately to play at MSU — bypassing the usual NCAA requirement that a player sit out for a season following a transfer.
According to associate athletic director John Lewandowski, the school is waiting on a few more medical documents before it will submit the waiver.
The NCAA should notify the school of its decision within three weeks of the waiver being filed.
Arnett will be eligible to participate in spring practice, which opens March 27, and in the April 28 spring football game, regardless of when the waiver is filed and what the verdict is.
