Zion Young is sixth Michigan State player to enter diversion program for tunnel charges
Zion Young is the latest Michigan State football player moving toward having a misdemeanor assault charge stemming from a postgame incident at Michigan dismissed. Young was one of seven Michigan State players charged in November for their roles in the postgame incidents in the tunnel following an Oct. 29 loss at Michigan. He is the sixth from that group to enter the pre-plea diversion program in the last week. Young was charged with misdemeanor aggravated assault after being one of a group of Michigan State players captured on video striking Michigan defensive back Ja’Den McBurrows. “Our office has had significantly high success with participants completing this program, and expect these young people to be no different if they elect to proceed with this diversion program.mlive.com
Michigan Stadium tunnel incident: MSU fined, Michigan reprimanded, 1 player suspended into 2023
In an official statement about the Michigan Stadium tunnel incident, the Big Ten Conference said they would fine Michigan State University, reprimand the University of Michigan, and suspend one player from the Spartans into the 2023 season.
How suspensions will affect Michigan State on the field vs. Illinois
EAST LANSING – Michigan State is coming of a 29-7 loss at Michigan last week for its fifth defeat in the last six games. Michigan State would obviously benefit from the return of Jeff Pietrowski, who started the first three games but has missed the last five due to injury. Barring injured players returning, Michigan State will likely have to shrink its rotation at defensive end, leading to an increase in snaps for those who are available. Among the suspended defensive backs, Grose (53 tackles, four pass break-ups) was by far the most impactful with 28 career starts. Michigan State is now in the final month of the schedule in a disappointing season but sees recent positives on defense.mlive.com
