Michigan State Football: Vayante Copeland Removed From Roster


The Michigan State football team is going to look a lot different than they thought it was going to. Several off-the field issues have led to the Spartans team becoming depleted of experienced players.

Today, cornerback Vayante Copeland became the latest Spartan to have his relationship with the team abruptly ended.

According to a report published on The Detroit NewsCopeland is no longer associated with the Michigan State team effective immediately.

Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio was reached for comment on the matter. He denied that Copeland was kicked off of the team. However, he was mum on what led to the dismissal.

“Vayante has done a great job here. He was not thrown off the football team, so I wish him the best.”

Michigan State will find itself in a position to start a lot of underclassmen talent in the 2017 football year. Copeland figured to see extensive playing time as a starter this upcoming season.

As a three-year player, he had his season cut short after seven games in 2016.

The dearth on defense should open up a lot of opportunities for younger players at Michigan State. If they hope to have any success this season, they’ll need younger players to step up.
