Wide receiver Jeremey Chappelle has confirmed that he is no longer attending Mississippi State.

Chappelle missed the final few weeks of spring football practices and no explanation was given as to his status with the team.

Chappelle appeared in 11 games for the Bulldogs last fall after transferring in from Tyler (Texas) Junior College in January 2013. He caught four passes for 45 yards and made one solo tackle in his only season at MSU.

Chappelle was a three-star prospect who spent his freshman season at Stephen F. Austin.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Tyler, Texas native wrote this on his personal Facebook page…

“I knew this time would come but here it is coming from the horses mouth. I’m pretty sure people been hearing about it but I’m no longer going to Mississippi State. First thing comes to people mind when Chappelle switching schools is a failed drug test smh. I’ve been kicked out of two programs for that but this time it was me standing up for what I believe in and that’s my self. I know I can make it and I suppose to but I can’t be seen on the sideline simple as that. And I feel with evetything inbme i should be on this field thats why im leaving. And thats only half of it. To everybody talking about I failed another drug test and that’s why I’m leaving Miss State I appreciate it. 100 yall motivating me. Really don’t know what I been through and I’m still standing 10 toes down solid. man. I ain’t giving up one more year to give it my all and hit the league. The people in my corner know my situation. And that’s all that matters. This ain’t the last of The Chappelle Show.”


I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
