Former Spartan Garrick Sherman Alleges Drug Use Among Michigan State Basketball Players, NCAA At Large in Twitter Rant
Former Michigan State center Garrick Sherman took to Twitter Wednesday night in an apparent drunken rant against the NCAA and Michigan State.
The 24-year-old from Ohio played his first two seasons at MSU before transferring to Notre Dame for his final two. Now playing abroad in the European country of Georgia, Sherman, 6-foot-10, marked the end of his Dinamo Tbilsi team's season with an admittedly drunken spiel on Twitter.
Sherman has since deleted many of his controversial tweets, but they still exist via screenshot. Some of them follow below. (WARNING: Explicit language):
Sherman played in the 2010 Final Four in Indianapolis as a true freshman with the Spartans. He averaged 1.9 points and 1.6 rebounds per game that season, then 3.1 points and 2.7 rebounds per game as a sophomore. He then transferred to Notre Dame, where he averaged 7 points and 3.4 rebounds per game as a redshirt junior, and 13.5 points and 7.3 rebounds per game as a redshirt senior.

On Thursday, Sherman apologized for the tone of some of his tweets but not the overall message.
