EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Michigan State guard Bryn Forbes will not have to sit out this season after transferring from Cleveland State.

The school said Wednesday that the NCAA has granted the 6-foot-3 Forbes a waiver to play this season.

Forbes, who is from Lansing, Michigan, wanted to attend a school closer to his family. He says getting the waiver will allow him to balance basketball, school and family obligations.

He averaged 15.6 points for Cleveland State last season as a sophomore. Forbes scored 22 points against Kentucky last season, a game in which he made seven 3-pointers. He averaged 2.5 3-pointers per game, ranking second in the Horizon League. Forbes averaged 12.7 points as a freshman and was the league's newcomer of the year.
