On Wednesday, it was reported that Michigan State cornerback Jermaine Edmondson was the person that got into an altercation with Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green. It looks like he wants to distance himself from the school as the Spartans announced he would transfer for his final year of eligibility.
While it wasn’t confirmed that this was the reason for his transfer, head coach Mark D’Antonio said that Edmondson wanted to play a bigger role on the team, but it likely would not happen.
“In discussions with Jermaine Edmondson following spring practice and in the weeks thereafter, it became clear that Jermaine wanted to play a larger role on the team,” D’Antonio said in the statement. “After consulting with him in the summer, he felt it was in his best interest to finish his playing career elsewhere. We have granted his immediate release to transfer to another institution to have that opportunity.”
Edmondson announced that he would be pressing charges against Green and that this case was far from over. However, his career with the Spartans is.
In 2015, Jermaine Edmondson recorded a career-high 25 tackles and recovered two fumbles in 14 games. He will likely be able to play immediately going into the 2016 season as he has already earned his degree.
