Mississippi State commit charged with felony assault following vehicle accident

Watson, a three-star athlete out of Alabama, is a member of Mississippi State's 2018 recruiting class.

Mississippi State football signee Nathaniel Watson was arrested Friday for felony first degree assault charges and numerous traffic violations after an alleged drag race in front of Maplesville High School in Alabama on February 1. According to the authorities, the race "ended" after Watson was forced to swerve to avoid an oncoming vehicle, at which point he lost control of the wheel and crashed into a power pole, cutting it in half and shorting out power to parts of town in the process.

The passenger in Watson's vehicle suffered a crushed femur, fractured pelvis, a broken right arm and had internal injuries. The passenger was airlifted to a hospital at UAB for treatment on his injuries. There are no reports of Watson himself having suffered any injuries. The passenger in Ford's vehicle was reportedly 12 years old. To cap things off, neither Watson nor Davis' cars were insured.

New Mississippi State coach Joe Moorhead will have a disciplinary decision to make in the coming days, as a 2018 Bulldogs commit was arrested on Friday after a vehicle crash on Wednesday. It is unknown whether Mississippi State will take any disciplinary action against Watson or honor his scholarship agreement. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Watson chose Mississippi State over offers from Auburn, Ole Miss, and others.
