Tight end Artimas Samuel is no longer part of the Mississippi State football team.

Samuel appeared in the final seven games last season and started in the Liberty Bowl. He hauled in four passes for 47 yards including a 4-yard touchdown against Rice.

The 6-foot-2, 260-pounder from Columbus, Ga., would have been a sophomore this fall. Samuel missed the final few weeks of spring practice for undisclosed reasons.

The former three-star prospect signed with the Bulldogs out of Carver High School in 2012 and again the following year from Hargrave (Va.) Military Academy.

MSU still has Brandon Hill, Malcolm Johnson and Gus Walley on the roster at tight end along with June JUCO enrollee Darrion Hutcherson. Signee Ravian Pierce has yet to enroll.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
