This is not the kind of offseason news you're hoping for.
Per Joe Rexrode:
MSU receiver Macgarrett Kings Jr. is facing two misdemeanor charges after another alcohol-related arrest. http://t.co/WT15Viis50— Joe Rexrode (@joerexrode) March 4, 2015
Most importantly, this is Kings' second alcohol-related offense in the last year, after a DUI last April. He was still on probation for that offense. I'm really hoping he gets the help he needs to overcome the issue.
As much as I hate to do this, here's the football impact: if Kings is dismissed from the team (and that seems likely to me), the experienced WR depth thins considerably. Kings had the second-most receptions on the team in 2014 with 29. The WR depth chart then includes Aaron Burbridge (26 catches in 2014) , R.J. Shelton (16), AJ Troup (7), and Monty Madaris (5). That means losing 3 of the top 4 pass-catchers, with TE Josiah Price in the mix as well.
Here's to hoping for the best for Macgarrett.
