NC State says Wolfpack halfback Toney Baker, who was granted a sixth-year of eligibility by the NCAA, has decided not to return for the 2010 season.

Baker graduated in December.

"After talking to my family, my coaches and doing a lot of praying, I've decided that it's time for me to pursue playing football at the next level," said Baker

Baker was the recipient of the ACC's 2009 Brian Piccolo Award as the league's "most courageous" player. He returned to the field in a big way in 2009 after missing almost two complete seasons with a knee injury, leading the team in rushing.

He finished the regular season ranked sixth in the ACC in rushing with 64.4 yards per game.
