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.

Ole Miss To Learn Brunetti’s Decision

Ole Miss should find out today if quarterback Barry Brunetti will transfer to Oxford to play for the Rebels.

Brunetti, who signed with West Virginia in February after attending Memphis (Tenn.) University School, is transferring closer to home so his mother will be able to see him play. Brunetti’s mother has dealt with a medical condition that made it difficult for her to travel to see her son play.

Brunetti’s decision will come down to Ole Miss, Memphis and Arkansas State. He told the Memphis Commercial Appeal last week that Ole Miss is the school to beat for his services.

Memphis coach Larry Porter was to meet with Brunetti and give a sales pitch before Brunetti made his final decision.

“I haven’t really picked Ole Miss, but I would say they’re right now the team to beat,” Brunetti told the Commercial Appeal. “But I would never have sent my release papers to Memphis if they weren’t in there.”

Brunetti was ranked the nation’s No. 3 dual-threat quarterback in the class of 2010 by He appeared in four games for West Virginia this year, completing 4-of-9 passes for six yards with one rush attempt for four yards.
