Report: Bryn Forbes Could Transfer from Cleveland State to Michigan State

Gregory Shamus

Cleveland State could lose starting guard Bryn Forbes to a late transfer if things go well in talks with Michigan State.

There was an interesting report out of Cleveland on Monday that indicated Cleveland State star guard Bryn Forbes has received permission to speak to Michigan State about a possible transfer.

According to Elton Alexander of the Plain Dealer, Forbes is looking into a transfer to be closer to his home in Lansing, Mich. He has a son who lives there, and his sister has a medical issue that Forbes would like to be closer to assist with.

None of this is a done deal, as Michigan State is light on scholarships available and there are a number of players who would like to have the final spot on the roster. This is primarily a fact-finding excursion.

But it should be worrisome for fans of the Vikings, who made a run late in the season and looked to be the team in the Horizon League that was playing the best entering the conference tournament. With Forbes in the lineup, Cleveland State was set to be a formidable opponent next season and primed to take over the top spot in the conference from Green Bay.

Without Forbes, this is a team with a very big hole to fill, as we saw late in the year when the guard was absent during a showdown with the Phoenix. He averaged 15.6 points and 3.1 rebounds this past season for Cleveland State while shooting 42.4 percent from 3-point range.

The Vikings expect to know more about Forbes' status by the end of the week.
