One of Mississippi State’s newest commitments could be facing a possible suspension.
Nixa, Mo., three-star running back Alec Murphy was caught shoplifting a pair of shoes at Wal-Mart on June 2 and has already paid the $100 fine according to the Springfield News-Leader.
Now Murphy must wait to see if he will face further repercussions from Nixa Public Schools concerning his playing status. He is scheduled to meet with the Nixa activities director on Friday.
Nixa opens the season Aug. 24 at Jefferson City in a nationally televised game on ESPNU.
The 6-foot-1, 222-pounder was one of eight prospects that committed to the Bulldogs on July 18. Last season, Murphy rushed 209 times for 1,793 yards and 22 touchdowns.
