Former Michigan State defensive tackle Craig Evans joined Current Sports host Al Martin on the air Thursday afternoon, coming to the aid of head coach Mark Dantonio in light of the ESPN "E:60" report. The report details alleged mishandling of sexual assault claims within Dantonio's program. Evans played for the Spartans from 2014-15 before leaving the program due to "personal reasons" back in April of 2016. Evans says that he was kicked-off the team due to problems with marijuana use. 

In this 20 minute interview, Evans praises the leadership of Dantonio and questions the validity of the ESPN "E:60" report. Listen as Evans gives an emotional plea to "Spartan Nation" to let the facts come to light before casting judgment. Evans is now a member of the Oregon State football team.
