Running back Delton Williams is not currently enrolled at Michigan State and his future with the Spartans remains in doubt. Mike Griffith of MLive.com reported the story.
Williams was suspended from the football team indefinitely back in March after his arrest for “brandishing a weapon in public,” a misdemeanor. Though he had a permit for the gun, he struck a plea bargain and pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.
Not only is he not currently enrolled in summer term classes, but has not registered for any future semesters.
The most experienced running back on the team now that Jeremy Langford and Nick Hill are gone, Williams’ absence leaves the rushing duties in the collective hands of the inexperienced Gerald Holmes, Nick Tompkins and Madre London.
Last season, Williams managed 54 carries for 316 yards and five touchdowns.
Now, it appears that Williams will have to wait for a decision from Michigan State’s administration regarding his status, as his arrest violated the school’s weapons ordinance.
No timetable has been given for that decision, but Campus Sports will update this story as more information becomes available.
The Spartans open the season on the road against Western Michigan on September 4.
