A former Mississippi State commitment has died after being stabbed in a Hattiesburg night club.
Rashod Henry, who committed to the Bulldogs from Pearl River Community College in the 2010 class, was stabbed at the Mary Jones Club on May 30 and passed away Wednesday at the age of 25, according to the Picayune Item.
Henry never inked with MSU but originally signed with Southern Miss in 2007 after leading Lumberton High School to back-to-back 2A state championships.
The three-star athlete also spent two seasons in the Atlanta Braves organization where he hit .227 with two triples, 10 runs batted in and 12 stolen bases but a shoulder injury limited him to just 44 games. Henry was a 28th round draft pick (858th overall).
Stanley Dunn, 50, of Hattiesburg was arrested for stabbing Henry in an incident that allegedly started over Henry spilling a drink on Dunn’s girlfriend. Henry was stabbed in the abdomen and back multiple times.
