Less than four weeks before the start of summer camp, Mississippi State has learned it will have some added depth at the tight end position for the 2012 season.
The school announced Thursday that Marcus Green has been granted a sixth season of eligibility by the NCAA. Green received the medical waiver after missing most the 2008 and 2010 seasons with hip and knee injuries, respectively.
Green, a three-star member of the Bulldogs’ 2007 recruiting class, played in 13 games last season and 28 in his career, starting 15 of those contests. During his time in Starkville, he has 42 career receptions for 580 yards and four touchdowns.
Coming out of spring practice, sophomores Malcolm Johnson and Brandon Hill were listed 1-2 on MSU’s depth chart.
