Mississippi State OL Elgton Jenkins Arrested

Mississippi State offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins has been arrested for a warrant on simple assault charges. Jenkins was booked and released on bond Thursday from Oktibbeha County jail in Mississippi.

There has been no comment from Mississippi State regarding the arrest of Jenkins. Jenkins is from Clarksdale, Mississippi and redshirted in 2014.

This is the third separate incident involving a Mississippi State Bulldog in the last week. Quarterback Dak Prescott was assaulted in Panama City Beach, Florida while on spring break. Fellow teammates Damian Williams and Torrey Dale were also assaulted.

Then came the news that wide receiver De’Runnya Wilson was arrested in Alabama on possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia on Friday night.

Mississippi State begins spring practice on Wednesday with the hope that this spate of off the field instances are behind them.
