WATCH: Mississippi State's Top-Rated Signee Got Caught Beating A Woman [VIDEO]

Jeffery Simmons was about to go to Mississippi State as a five-star defensive end with a bright future. That was before Simmons allegedly beat up a woman this week — and we’re saying “allegedly” despite North Mississippi’s WCBI getting video of the incident before Simmons ran to Facebook to apologize. [photo: Butch Dill/Getty]
Yes, the video below certainly seems to show Mississippi native  Simmons repeatedly punching a woman who’s helpless on the ground. That’s not a good look for an aspiring college football star. We’ll concede he was a pro at posting that apology, even if it does begin with a masterpiece of understatement…
Decisions, choices and actions should always be carefully thought through when incidents occur. I take full responsibility for my actions that occurred on Thursday evening. My apologies go out to the Taylor Family and especially to Sophia Taylor…
Simmons then goes on to explain that he was just defending the honor of his two dead nephews, and we have nothing to say about that because we don’t want the guy tracking us down here at the COED offices. We wouldn’t be able to defend ourselves any better than Sophia Taylor — who we’re assuming is the woman here on the tape. It still looks like we might see how a Facebook apology does in court…
