Former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott’s DUI trial date has been pushed back to July 20, according to a report from The Clarion Ledger’s Michael Bonner.
Prescott was scheduled to appear in court on Thursday for a trial regarding his March DUI arrest in Starkville, Miss. Prescott released an apology immediately after the incident, stressing that he would “exhibit his character moving forward.” The results from Prescott’s breathalyzer test were inconclusive.
A month later, Prescott was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Prescott signed a four-year deal worth a bit more than $2.6 million and will spend at least the next season on the bench as Tony Romo’s backup. The Cowboys are hoping Prescott develops into the franchise’s next great quarterback.
