Are the Spartans looking to add a big man via graduate transfer?

The college basketball transfer market is once again turning the offseason into free agency thanks to the graduate transfer rule.

We're once again seeing solid players like UNLV's Ben Carter able to transfer from programs in disarray and look to end their collegiate careers in a better situation. I think we can all agree Michigan State is a much better place to end one's career than with the Runnin Rebels, which Carter may be looking to do.

Next weekend, Carter will visit East Lansing, according to CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein.

One of the top graduate transfers still remaining, Carter is on the move again after beginning his college career at Oregon and played last season at UNLV. The 6-9 forward averaged 8.6 points, 6.0 boards and 1.6 assists per game last season with the Runnin' Rebels. His season ended on Jan. 30 due to a torn ACL.

Carter is immediately eligible and will fill a big need in the frontcourt with Marvin Clark transferringMatt Costello graduating and Deyonta Davis going pro. Arizona, Arizona State, Miami (FL) and N.C. State are also in consideration for Carter.
