"That was another midweek decision that we had to make, whether we were going to go all-out on him, stay in it with another guy that was very similar. And we made the decision to go with D.J.," Freeze (Ole Miss head coach) said, according to USA Today Sports. "Really fell in love with him on his trip here."...Freeze said Ole Miss had been willing to overlook "some academic challenges" the recruit likely would face.

counting on having a scholarship to college and playing football here this summer but I've met someone else. No, no, no, it's not you, it's me. I just don't think I'm in a place right now as a coach where I can honor my offer to you. Sorry, that's life in the SEC, baby."

It is the schools fault he signed with 2 schools.

D.J. Law, the high school running back prospect from Florida who submitted signed national letters of intent to Utah and Mississippi, has been released from his obligation to Ole Miss.

This would actually be a good thing...the recruit sent LOIs to multiple schools and said he wanted to go to Utah instead of Ole Miss. Ole Miss said ok. This isn't a case of them turning him away.


seems like the kids fault to me. Ole Miss did nothing wrong

I would hope Clemson would do the same thing. You either in or out.. cant go two places.

I may be reading this wrong, but the kid sent in a LOI to both Utah and Ole Miss and stated he wanted to play at Utah. Ole Miss let him do so even though they reportedly had the first LOI and therefore the tie breaker on this 4 star kid. They could have played hardball and made him stick with OM, no? What am I missing here?
