Update: Michigan State Forward Kenny Kaminski Dismissed From Spartans Basketball Program

Update: Saturday night, as we noted below, Kaminski informed his Twitter followers that he would be leaving Michigan State. Monday afternoon, head coach Tom Izzo gave some details as to the reasoning. It seems that Kaminski was actually dismissed from the program after he “repeatedly failed to meet the necessary obligations” that go along with being a student-athlete at Michigan State.

Via Chris Solari of the Lansing State Journal:

It’s a sad end to what looked to be a promising career for Kaminski at MSU. 

Earlier: Redshirt sophomore power forward Kenny Kaminski was expected to be a major contributor on Michigan State’s basketball team next season. With star big man Adreian Payne graduating, Kaminski — who led the Big Ten with a 49.4 percent three point shooting percentage in 2013-14 — was primed for a huge season as a potentially dominant stretch four. However, Kaminski’s career in East Lansing is over, as he tweeted last night that he plans on transferring.

Kaminski did have some academic issues during his time as a Spartan, but he still played well in limited action. The Ohio native averaged 4.9 points and 1.5 rebounds in 12.2 minutes per game. Neither Michigan State basketball nor head coach Tom Izzo has commented on Kaminski’s decision.
