Michigan State’s LJ Scott makes big announcement regarding future
Just about a month ago, Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio revealed that running back LJ Scott would be taking advantage of a new NCAA rule. That rule would allow him to redshirt if he sat out the remainder of the 2018 season, giving him one more full season of eligibility, which he planned to spend with the Spartans.
Well, apparently Scott has had a change of heard as he took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce he would be leaving Michigan State and entering the NFL Draft.
The past four years at Michigan State have been some of the best of my life. It has been an incredible journey in East Lansing, and I am proud of all of our accomplishments as a team and forever grateful to the entire Spartan Nation.
“Having dealt with various humbling injuries during the 2018 regular season, I initially believed the best plan for me was to return to the Spartans as a Redshirt Senior next season,” Scott said in a statement posted to Twitter. “As the season has drawn closer to an end, I’ve had time to properly reflect and discuss all of my options with my coaches and family to decide the absolute best course of action for me going forward. After a ton of thought, prayer, and careful consideration, I have decided to enter the 2019 NFL Draft as a senior.
