    Dak Prescott apologizes for DUI in a statement released on Sunday to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

    March 14, 2016

    Dak Prescott apologized for his DUI arrest in a statement on Sunday, with promises to “show the true man” he is.

    Dak Prescott’s preparation for the upcoming 2016 NFL Draft hit a snag over the weekend when he was arrested early Saturday morning for a DUI. It’s the first blemish the former Mississippi State quarterback has on his resume, and it couldn’t have come at a worse time.

    Prescott, who was a model for good character on and off the field with the Bulldogs, will now have to answer questions regarding his miscue from NFL franchises trying to determine if they should draft him. He has been projected to be selected anywhere between the second and fourth round, but the higher side of that is now in doubt due to his DUI. 

    Teams really scraping for red flags might also point to an altercation Prescott and some of his teammates were in last year at spring break. The players were jumped and are widely considered to be victims of an attack; however moralistic NFL teams might take the high ground and question why Prescott had even put himself in such a position.

    He took the first step to putting the arrest behind him on Sunday by releasing the following statement to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

    “I want to make a statement, and first take complete responsibility for my actions. I’m very remorseful for my misjudgement. I want to tapologize 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.”
