Shilique Calhoun has been one of Michigan State’s leaders, helping lead a disruptive defensive front for the past three seasons.

On Sunday, he announced he’ll do that for one more.

It’s good news for Michigan State. The Spartans are losing key contributors like safety Kurtis Drummond (graduation) and corner Trae Waynes (leaving early for the NFL). With Calhoun back, the MSU defensive front figures to be good again, perhaps even dominant with another year together.

Calhoun had been contemplating an early departure for the NFL Draft, but was reportedly bothered by a second-round grade. Now he can improve his stock over the course of his senior season.

The 6-foot-5, 250-pound defensive end from New Jersey┬áranks among MSU’s all-time leaders in tackles for loss yardage (seventh with 174), sack yardage (eighth with 125), sacks (tied for 10th with 15), fumble recoveries (tied for 10th with five) and tackles for loss (17th with 27.5). In 39 career games, Calhoun has 80 tackles, including 27.5 for losses (174 yards) with 15 sacks (125 yards).
