EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Jalen Watts-Jackson, who etched his name into Michigan State lore by scoring the winning touchdown against Michigan in 2015 on a botched punt, says he has requested his release from the Spartans.

In a message posted on Twitter on Wednesday, Watts-Jackson said he will be graduating this year and wants to ''pursue a new program'' for his last year. He has a season of eligibility remaining.

Watts-Jackson has appeared in 22 games in three seasons with Michigan State.

With the Spartans trailing Michigan in the final seconds three years ago, Wolverines punter Blake O'Neill failed to handle a snap. In the ensuing scramble, Watts-Jackson grabbed the ball and ran 38 yards with no time remaining, giving the Spartans a 27-23 victory .
