Mississippi State Disassociates Self From Booster

Mississippi State has disassociated itself from a booster who made impermissible contact with a prospective student-athlete.

That information comes from a letter written by attorney Michael Glazier, who is serving as outside for the school as the NCAA continues to investigate the recruiting tactics of former wide receivers coach Angelo Mirando. The name of the banned booster was blacked out in the school’s release.

The letter, per the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal, states the following:

“The (NCAA) investigation has revealed that as a representative of Mississippi State’s athletic interests (Bulldog Club member), you engaged in impermissible contact with the prospective student-athlete and that other violations of NCAA rules also may have occurred.”

Reports last week linked the NCAA investigation to Mississippi State freshman Will Redmond, who signed with the Bulldogs out of Memphis (Tenn.) East High School.

It appears Redmond isn’t the only Memphis-area prospect who has brought on the interest of the NCAA. Georgia freshman Sheldon Dawson, who attended Memphis Ridgeway, will be interviewed by an NCAA representative on Friday, according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

Alabama signee Brandon Hill, who has enrolled at Hargrave Military Academy, met with the NCAA close to six months ago while attending St. George’s Independent School in Collierville, Tenn., according to the Commercial Appeal.

The subject of the interviews, according to both schools’ coaches, has centered around Mississippi State.

Why would a school be cheap and not win the bid for he most impactful single season player of all time and then buy a non factor?

Why would they black out the boosters name if he violated something like this. Seems to me we should know his name. Is this some privacy issue?
