QB Dak Prescott Staying at Mississippi State

STARKVILLE, Miss.- Dak Prescott is staying at Mississippi State for his last year of eligibility remaining.

Prescott made that announcement Wednesday.

Mississippi State has already lost two juniors to the NFL Draft; linebacker Benardick McKinney and running back Josh Robinson.

Prescott broke 12 school records in 2014. He helped the bulldogs earn their first ever No. 1 ranking and an appearance in the Orange Bowl for the first time since 1941.

Prescott’s decision came after he received a draft grade from the NFL. Draft analysts slotted him anywhere from a second-round pick to a late round selection. Most said another year of college would benefit the quarterback.

Prescott, a one-time Heisman Trophy front-runner, ended up eighth in Heisman balloting with two first-place votes.

He finished the season with 3,449 passing yards and 27 passing touchdowns to 11 interceptions with a 61.6 completion percentage. He also had 986 yards rushing and 14 TDs on the ground.
