LJ Scott threw his wristbands into the crowd. He started to jog off the field, and he returned to greet Madre London and go see friends and family in the stands. Scott did not want to leave the SDCCU Stadium field after a 42-17 Holiday Bowl win over Washington State. And he does not plan to leave Michigan State yet, either. The junior running back said Thursday night that he will not leave a year early for the NFL Draft and plans to return to the Spartans next season. “Yes sir, I’ll be back there in East Lansing next year,” said Scott, who ran for 110 yards and two touchdowns in the 19th-ranked Spartans’ victory, including a 28-yard score in the fourth quarter. That was not a surprise to coach Mark Dantonio, other than Scott making his decision public.
