You just knew this was coming.
Marlon Humphrey, one of the top recruits in the Class of 2014, ignited a mini-firestorm Monday with a series of tweets directed at Ole Miss that seemingly came out of nowhere. In those tweets, he labeled the schools as “racist” and alluded to monthly KKK marches on the campus.
In fact, one tweet stated that “when I went down there with my brother they had a KKK march.”
As expected, though, the son of former Alabama great Bobby Humphrey has publicly distanced himself from his own words and offered up an apology later that night to pretty much anyone connected to Ole Miss.
Humphrey is considered by most recruiting services to be the top player in the state of Alabama for next year’s class. He is Rivals.com‘s No. 3 cornerback and the No. 11 player at any position.
