Former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott is trying to pick up the pieces of his NFL draft stock after he was arrested Saturday for driving under the influence, and promised that he will prove the incident isn’t indicative of his character.
“I want to make a statement, and first take complete responsibility for my actions,” Prescott wrote in a statement sent to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. “I’m very remorseful for my misjudgement. I want to apologize to my true supporters, my family, Mississippi State University, the NFL and the kids who look up to me. I won’t ask for forgiveness; however, I’ll show the true man I am and exhibit my character through my actions and behavior moving forward.”
Prescott was reportedly arrested early Saturday morning in Starkville, Miss., and later spent the rest of the morning hosting a football camp for more than 200 kids, according to The Clarion-Ledger.
