Blog – MSU TE Samuel no longer on team

A Mississippi State spokesperson confirmed Wednesday that tight end Artimas Samuel is no longer on the team. The news was first reported by Bulldawgs 247.

Samuel would have been entering his sophomore season with the Bulldogs this fall. He went through spring drills, but decided to leave the team this summer. No reason was given for his departure.

The Columbus, Ga. native played in seven games as freshman. He had four catches for 47 yards and a touchdown. The lone touchdown came in the Bulldogs’ 44-7 victory over Rice in the Liberty Bowl.

The Bulldogs will still have depth at the tight end position even with Samuel not on the roster. MSU has seniors Malcolm Johnson and Brandon Hill, sophomore Gus Walley and redshirt freshman B.J. Hammond at tight end. They also welcome junior college transfer Darrion Hutcherson into the fold.
