Apr 20, 2017

Michigan St. signee Lashawn Paulino-Bell is recovering after jet-ski accident.

The high school coach of Michigan State signee Lashawn Paulino-Bell says the defensive lineman is expected to make a full recovery after a jet-skiing accident last weekend.

Roger Harriott, the coach at St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, confirmed Wednesday that Paulino-Bell was hurt in an accident in the Bahamas on Sunday.

He was airlifted to a hospital in the Miami area, and Harriott described him as "very stable" despite some trauma to his organs.

Paulino-Bell is part of Michigan State's 2017 signing class and helped St. Thomas Aquinas to a state championship last season.

His aunt said updates on his health would be provided on a GoFundMe page set up for him.
