JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -Mississippi State will allow Maurice Langston to join the team after the defensive back took a plea deal after his arrest for marijuana possession.
Bulldogs coach Dan Mullen issued a statement Wednesday noting that Langston has done everything asked of him since his arrest for possession of about a pound of marijuana with intent to distribute last February in Hattiesburg.
The Forrest County district attorney's office says Langston received five years probation after making a plea to the lesser charge of possession and also will serve 500 hours of community service.
It's not clear from the statement when Langston will play, but a spokesman says similar language was used after Anthony Dixon's suspension was lifted. The tailback played the next week.
