The good news for Ole Miss, though, is that avoided any additional penalties, which could have included vacating the Egg Bowl and BBVA Compass Bowl wins, according the Jackson Clarion-Ledger.
Ole Miss self-reported the violation in April after the matter was brought to its attention by the NCAA.
Davis recorded seven tackles, all on kickoff coverage last season. In the spring, he was moved from running back to cornerback.
Bennie Abram III was a 20-year old non-scholarship player at Ole Miss when he collapsed in an offseason workout and later died.
The family will receive $50,000 from an insurance company connected to the school and $275,000 from an NCAA insurance policy. The university will also pay for any undergraduate or graduate course work done at Ole Miss by Abram’s mother or his brothers.
After Abram’s death, an autopsy determined that it was caused by complications from sickle cell trait.
