Mississippi State is looking into allegations that some football prospects on a recruiting visit last weekend went to a strip club. The incident appears to be a topic of conversation by three recruits, all reportedly from our area on facebook. The visit to the stripclub allegedly happened last Saturday night. Mississippi State released this statement to the media late Tuesday..
"Before every official visit, university policy is reviewed with our student athletes. Following the visits, we review all activities to make sure all visits are in compliance with university, SEC and NCAA policies.
It has been brought to our attention that an activity – outside the approved itinerary and certainly without the approval or consent of our coaches or athletic department – may have occurred last weekend. Our athletic director, compliance office and coaching staff were all immediately made aware of the possible incident, and we are reviewing the facts at this time.
As always, if it is determined that a violation of official visit policy has transpired, we will take appropriate action. At this time, however, it appears that this is an isolated incident involving only a small number of individuals. "
