DETROIT -- The high school coach of Michigan State Spartans signee Lashawn Paulino-Bell said the defensive lineman is expected to make a full recovery after being injured in a Jet Ski 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. He 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.
