One of the things every college football program dreads in the offseason is players getting in trouble. You never want to see one of your guys getting arrested.
Unfortunately for Mississippi State, it appears one of their players did just that yesterday.
Mississippi State wide receiver Reggie Todd has been arrested on a charge of simple assault, according to a new report from the Clarion-Ledger.
Details are scarce right now, but Todd was reportedly bonded out.

Todd, a native of Mobile, Alabama, signed with Mississippi State in 2016. He was a three-star recruit.
After redshirting in 2016, Todd carved out a role last season. He appeared in all 13 games, recording 12 receptions for 128 yards and a touchdown.
Under new head coach Joe Moorhead, there should be plenty of opportunities to throw the ball. Todd is one of several receivers competing for playing time in 2018.
We’ll update you on his arrest as details come out.
