Valparaiso star guard Wood transferring to Michigan State

Valparaiso Crusaders star guard Brandon Wood has decided to transfer to Michigan State after earning his bachelor’s degree.

The redshirt junior was the Horizon League’s number 3 scorer last season at 16.7 points per game.

Most folks probably wonder how an athlete can transfer after receiving a degree and still have two years left.

Well, the NCAA has a rule that allows schools to apply for a waiver that would allow transfers to play immediately if they have earned a degree, have eligibility remaining and enroll in a graduate-level program.

Wood earned first-team All-Horizon League this season and was on the 2011 Horizon League tournament team.
