Mississippi State will allow five-star defensive end signee Jeffery Simmons to enroll in school even though he was arrested in March and charged with simple assault and disturbing the peace. Per ESPN:
Simmons was arrested in March and charged with simple assault and disturbing the peace after a video that appeared to show him striking a woman several times after she fell to the ground emerged on social media. The defensive end prospect, who was ranked 84th overall in the 2016 ESPN 300 and signed with the Bulldogs in February, is awaiting legal resolution of the incident.
The university issued a statement Thursday that said Simmons "will be evaluated by the licensed professionals at the university's Student Counseling Services and be required to complete any program prescribed by that office."
