Recruit who signed with three different schools later released from NLI by Ole Miss

Dacorius Law was a bit confused on Signing Day. Or maybe a bit overexcited.

The running back recruit from Haines City, Fla., signed letters of intent with Utah, Mississippi and East Mississippi Community College.

The resulting confusion led both Utah and Ole Miss to announce that Law would play for them.

Things became a bit clearer on Thursday as Ole Miss graciously released the three-star recruit from his letter with the Rebels, clearing the way for Law to go to Utah if he qualifies academically. If that doesn’t happen, he’ll probably head to EMCC.

Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze released a statement on Law:

“Our compliance department is cooperating fully with the NLI office on this matter. We are completely certain no wrongdoing occurred by our coaching or compliance staff. Regardless of the outcome of the findings, we want the young man to attend the school he wants. After talking with D.J. and his family, we are releasing him from his NLI and wish him the best. We have put this matter behind us and plan to make best use of that scholarship.”

We look forward to seeing where Law ends up. If the last two days are any indication, his college career promises to be entertaining.

    Notice he didn’t include Harvard or Yale in any of that. Just sayin’

    I’d say its a safe bet he doesn’t qualify based on the who premise of you only get to select one school and he didn’t quite get that.

    Seriously. How can you screw it up that bad? Promising for his future in higher education.

    Couldn’t decide between Utah and Ole Miss? Does he live in Maine and not have a clue where Mississippi and Utah are on a map?

    Student-Athlete…… BwaHaaaaHaaaaaaaaa…….

    Just make it where athletes can go to school or not. He is wasting professors time at this point.

    If you have cases like this, I guess over signing really isn’t a problem…natural selection will weed these guys out.

    And what reason does a community college have for using LOIs? You could be on a damn work release program and enroll.

    Oh and does homey have is lip pierced AND have three cuts in his eyebrow?

    Like Chris Rock said, he’ll probably suck yo’ dick.

    I think Mississippi’s lose might just have been a gain in this case.

    I wonder if he gets to keep his Ole Miss/$EC signing bonus…

    Go to EMCC! You will have an immediate opportunity to start I am sure, and you will have a better chance of being recruited by schools. If he hasn’t made his mind up and is still concerned with his academic eligibility then he would have the bet shot at a career with EMCC.

    How can you not qualify at Utah? Clearly someone who signs 3 letters of intent.

    smart move. sign as many letters as possible. keep them options open, genius.
