Spartans Release Caesar From Scholarship

Sophomore wide receiver Juwan Caesar asked and was granted a release from his Michigan State scholarship on Thursday.

After much talk official word was released on Thursday on the status of Miami (Fla.) Coral Park product Juwan Caesar's future at Michigan State.

The 6-foot-4, 212-pound Caesar who redshirted during the 2011 season and did not see game action in 2012 was being projected to compete at tight end after a move during bowl practices.

However, there has been much talk about Caesar's future with the Spartans program as several reports had him leaving the program.

Thursday, all talk was put to rest as John Lewandowski, Associate Athletics Director of Communications sent out the following by email.

"Michigan State sophomore wide receiver Juwan Caesar has requested and been granted a release from his scholarship," said Lewandowski.

Caesar entered Michigan State as a three-star prospect (No. 78 wide receiver) with many feeling he had a chance to use his combination of size and speed to be a top target. However, after failing to break into the two-deep a move to tight end looked to be more of a chance for Caesar to earn playing time going forward.
