It looks like the Michigan State Spartans aren't finished with the 2016 class after all.

Well, at least in terms of graduate transfers who could come in and play one season in East Lansing before their college eligibility expires.

That's the case with Andrew White III, a graduate transfer via the Nebraska Cornhuskers, who will visit Michigan State this weekend, according to CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein.

A 6-7 guard/wing from Richmond (VA), White was an All-Big Ten honorable mention this past season after averaging 16.6 points and 5.9 boards per game. He played only one season at Nebraska after transferring from Kansas, where he saw limited minutes in his two years there.

After initially declaring for the 2016 NBA draft before withdrawing, White then decided he wanted to play his final year of college at a program where he won't only make the NCAA Tournament, but be in contention for a spot in the Final Four.

Neither of those was coming at Nebraska, but both are certainly in play at Michigan State.

As a graduate transfer, White would be eligible to play immediately this season. He's already visited Syracuse.
