A Michigan State Guard Has Become A "J.J. Redick Level" Shooter, Per Tom Izzo

Bryn Forbes had a nice first season with Michigan State's men's basketball program. The Cleveland State transfer averaged 8.5 points a game and shot 42 percent from 3 in his debut campaign with the Spartans. 

The 6-foot-3, 175-pound guard's senior season in East Lansing, Mich. could be special. 

Forbes, already a gifted shooter, has become a "J.J. Redick level" threat from deep, according to Tom Izzo.

Forbes made 1.8 3s a game last season. How many can we expect the sharpshooter to knock down this season? 

Michigan State opens its 2015-16 season Nov. 13 against FAU.
