Spartans WR Juwan Caesar to transfer

Michigan State's search for difference makers at wide receiver won't include Juwan Caesar. He has asked for, and received, his release and intends to transfer, the team announced Thursday.

Caesar, a 6-foot-4, 212-pound sophomore, didn't play a down for Michigan State. He redshirted in 2011 after sustaining a foot injury and didn't play last season, moving from wideout to tight end in Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl practices.

There's no word on where Caesar could transfer, although he's from Miami and could seek a destination closer to home.

RecruitingNation gave Caesar a four-star rating and listed him as the nation's No. 37 receiver in 2011. He was one of the highest-rated recruits in Michigan State's 2011 class.
