Michigan State forward Malik Hall returning for 5th season

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State forward Malik Hall announced Tuesday on social media he’s returning for a fifth season.

Hall is the second Michigan State senior to return for a fifth year, making his announcement a day after standout guard Tyson Walker said he’s also taking advantage of the extra year granted to players during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The return of the two starters provides experience to a Spartans roster that is primed to add two McDonald’s All-America selections in center Xavier Booker and guard Jeremy Fears Jr.

The two are part of a highly rated recruiting class for the Spartans.

Michigan State lost sophomore guard Pierre Brooks II in the transfer portal. He announced he intends to play next season at Butler.
