The Clarion-Ledger's Michael Bonner is reporting that Mississippi State wide receiver Fred Brown has been dismissed from the university for violating the student honor code.

While this honor code obviously could be nebulous and cover a wide array of activity, nothing has officially surfaced as to what Brown did to be in violation of the code.
While Bulldog fans should wish Brown the best in getting back on his feet and getting things in order, they will also no doubt turn their attention to what this means for Mississippi State on the football filed.
With Brown no longer at the school, the Bulldogs will take to the spring game without its four leading receivers from last season. Fred Ross and Donald Grey have missed the spring with injuries, Brown no longer attends Mississippi State, and De'Runnya Wilson declared for the draft.
With these players not participating in the spring game Saturday, fans should look to see how Gabe Myles looks in his return from injury. Also, Jesse Jackson, a Petal product, and Jonnas Spivey, a converted quarterback from Bay Springs, Miss., may now find themselves locked into a battle to replace Brown on the field.
Last season, Brown accounted for 27 catches for 412 yards and three touchdowns.
In addition to the above listed receivers, Malik Dear, Deddrick Thomas, and Keith Mixon are listed on the spring roster as well.
