Edwin Baker says he's skipping his senior season at Michigan State to enter the NFL draft. Baker tells The Associated Press he told Spartans coach Mark Dantonio of his decision Friday, a day after defensive tackle Jerel Worthy declared himself eligible for the draft. Baker ran for 665 yards and five touchdowns last season, sharing carries with Le'Veon Bell. Read more here and look at Baker's season's stats here. On the same day the school announced defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi would be staying at the school.

There were reports that the defensive guru would leave for a position with Texas A&M, and Narduzzi confirmed tho reports in a statement from Michigan State today. In that same statement, Narduzzi said he had to explore the opportunity but in the end chose to stay in East Lansing. ?I share the same feelings that our players and coaches have that there?s some unfinished business to take care of here," Narduzzi said. "We?re all driven to win the Big Ten Championship and win a Rose Bowl."
