Mississippi State’s receiving corps lost production and experience when De’Runnya Wilson decided to forgo his final year to enter the NFL Draft.

The Bulldogs lost even more as rising senior wideout Fred Brown was dismissed from the university for violating the student honor code.

A team spokesman confirmed Thursday morning that the 6-foot-1, 196-pounder from Jackson was no longer a student at MSU.

Brown started all 13 games for the Bulldogs last season and was fourth on the team with 27 catches for 412 yards and three touchdowns. He also returned a kickoff 33 yards, lost two yards on a punt return and made a tackle.

Brown was the only starting receiver practicing for State this spring following groin surgery on fellow senior Fred Ross. Brown participated in the Bulldogs’ first spring scrimmage but was not on the sidelines for the second this past Saturday. Head coach Dan Mullen stated afterwards that Brown “has some family deals”.

Brown concludes his Mississippi State career having played in 34 games with 15 starts. He hauled in 50 passes for 785 yards and five touchdowns.

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.
