Mississippi State dismisses Fred Brown

STARKVILLE, Miss. (WJTV) – According to Michael Bonner of the Jackson Clarion-Ledger, Mississippi State has dismissed wide receiver Fred Brown due to a violation of the student honor code.

MSU confirmed to WJTV that Brown is no longer a student at the university but did not give any more details about the situation at this time.

This upcoming season would have been Brown’s fifth at Mississippi State. The Jim Hill alumnus caught 27 passes for 412 yards, good for third most on the team, and three touchdowns last season. For his career, he totaled 50 receptions, 785 yards, and five touchdowns.

Brown, along with senior Fred Ross, came into the spring as the two most experienced receivers for the Bulldogs. With Ross missing all of the spring with a groin injury and now Brown no longer being at MSU, that means the team is missing its top four wide receivers from last season as it approaches its spring game. De’Runnya Wilson declared early for the NFL Draft while Donald Gray is out with a knee injury.

Mississippi State’s Maroon and White Spring Game is on April 16 at 11 a.m.
