Mother of Mario Mathis Says Ole Miss Didn't Revoke Offer

8

In this article by Ron Higgins of The Commercial Appeal, Mathis' mother disputes the report about her son's predicament that was published in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Tuesday. Denise Fletcher, mother of Mario Mathis, stated that "Ole Miss has never been anything but honest with Mario. You can’t give a scholarship to someone who can’t physically play. It’s ridiculous to think otherwise." Fletcher goes on to say the following about Ole Miss and the Rebel coaching staff: "Mario loves that school and those coaches. They understand Mario’s level of commitment and we understand their level of commitment. He and Ole Miss have nothing but respect for each other. We know it and they know it." The mere fact that some journalists published the other version of the story is absurd. However, since this is the world of college football recruiting, it's not all that surprising. Personally, I hope Mathis makes a full recovery and is on our list of new signees in February 2013. Regardless of where Mario ends up, I hope he has a great senior season, and I hope he's successful in the future.
