UM’s Grandy To Transfer

Ole Miss receiver and kick returner Jesse Grandy plans to transfer from Ole Miss in an effort to get closer to home.  Grandy is dealing with a family member’s illness back in Pine Bluff, Arkansas.

The junior-to-be caught 20 passes for the Rebels last year.  He also returned 30 kickoffs (20.9-yard average) and 15 punts (14.7-yard average) in 2010.  As a freshman in 2009 he returned two kickoffs for touchdowns.

Houston Nutt told The Jackson Clarion-Ledger that he would like to have Grandy back, but he said his wishes were “secondary” to Grandy’s desire to go home.  “It was tough on him this past year,” Nutt said.
