Dan Mullen addresses discipline following arrest of Mississippi State 4-star RB Kylin Hill

Hours after reports surfaced that prized 2017 recruit Kylin Hill was arrested on a reckless driving charge the day before, Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen addressed the incident and possible discipline on Friday.

According to Will Sammon of The Clarion-Ledger, Mullen said that Hill, the 4-star running back, will likely pay a fine but face no additional punishment.

The 5-foot-11, 210-pound Hill, an in-state signee from Columbus, is among four 4-star prospects in the class for the Bulldogs and enrolled in June.

More details of the arrest made by the Mississippi State Highway Patrol were released on Friday by Joel Coleman of Starkville Daily News. Most notably, Hill was reportedly driving well in excess of 100 mph.

According to the 247Sports composite ranking, Hill is rated as the No. 15 running back for 2017. He was a big pledge for the Bulldogs, choosing Mississippi State over SEC offers from Missouri, Ole Miss and Tennessee, as well as other schools.

Mississippi State opens the season at home against Charleston Southern on Sept. 2. Kickoff is scheduled for 4 p.m. ET.
