Michigan State adds Forbes, another hoops transfer

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Michigan State has added another transfer to its basketball program.

Tom Izzo says Friday that guard Bryn Forbes is transferring to become a Spartan after averaging 15.6 points for Cleveland State last season as a sophomore. Izzo was impressed that Forbes scored 22 points against Kentucky last season, a game in which he made seven 3-pointers.

Forbes will be eligible to play in the 2015-16 season along with another transfer, former West Virginia high-scoring guard Eron Harris, after both sit out next season.

The 6-foot-3 Forbes reunites with Lansing Sexton High School teammate Denzel Valentine. Forbes led his team in scoring last season and made 2.5 3-pointers per game, ranking second in the Horizon League. He averaged 12.7 points as a freshman and was the conference's newcomer of the year.
