Reserve lineman Merritt leaves Bulldogs

One week into preseason camp, reserve offensive lineman Dakota Merritt has left the Mississippi State football team.
“He said he didn’t want to play football any more,” coach Dan Mullen told reporters Saturday.
Merritt, a 6-foot-5, 300-pound rising sophomore, played in one game last season.
He is the seventh player to leave the team since Mullen was hired in December.
