At a televised announcement on Wednesday, he put on a University of Utah hat. But hours earlier, Ole Miss had already received a signed letter of intent from him. For good measure, he also signed junior college papers with East Mississippi Community College at his home on Tuesday night. He claims those papers were never faxed but the school’s Twitter account included him in its signing class.
“I don’t really know what happened, to tell you the truth,” Law said. “I trust the coaching over there (at Utah), so I left it to them, and we’ll see what happens. If something happens, then I’ll be worried.”
So what happens now? Utah sent their paperwork along with a video of Law signing to the Pac-12 offices. Ole Miss says their compliance department is looking into the matter.
Law is not the only one confused by the whole matter. Here’s what his high school coach said about the end of Law’s recruitment. ”Ole Miss would not talk to me. They would not talk to anyone from our school. We don’t know what’s going on.”
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze may not be talking to him but he did comment on Law Wednesday: ”He’s got some academic challenges. Hopefully he can overcome those.”
