EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State All-America running back Kenneth Walker is skipping the Peach Bowl and his senior season to enter the NFL draft.

Coach Mel Tucker says he supports the decision.

Walker is a Tennessee native who transferred from Wake Forest after his sophomore season and helped Tucker’s turnaround.

Michigan State won two games last year but 10 this time around.  

The 11th-ranked Spartans will face No. 13 Pittsburgh in Dec. 30 bowl game in Atlanta.
