EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Ex-Michigan State football defensive standout Reggie Garnett has died of complications from diabetes. He was 38.

Michigan State says Garnett died Tuesday. He’d been living in Dearborn.

Garnett was a linebacker and four-year starter at Michigan State during George Perles coaching era. He was Big Ten freshman of the year in 1993 and led the team in tackles in 1995 with 111.
