Dacorious "DJ" Law, a three-star athlete out of Haines City, Florida, has been released from his LOI that he signed with Ole Miss. The situation surrounding this release is a bit strange, but I'll do my best to summarize it objectively:
- First, DJ Law signed his Letter of Intent to play at Ole Miss at 8:30ish AM Central on National Signing Day.
- By 4:00 PM on that same day, it was revealed that he had also signed letters of intent to play at Utah and East Mississippi Community College. He even had a signing day ceremony where he donned a Utes cap, confusing Ole Miss and Utah fans alike.
- DJ Law himself was even a bit perplexed by the goings on, saying that he "[didn't] know what really happened"with his multiple LOI situation.
Well, that situation just became less confusing, as Hugh Freeze and the Rebel coaching staff have released Law from his obligations to Ole Miss. In his National Signing Day press conference, Coach Freeze did allude to Law's academic status, saying that his staff was willing to "overlook" those issues because they're "totally convinced [he] wants to make something of himself." Well, he'll have to do that either as a Ute or an East Mississippi Lion now, and if we were ones to gamble on it (we're not) we'd put our money on Scooba.
Either way, we wish the best of luck to DJ Law in whatever he does next. I'm sure that, if he does go the Juco route, he'll have a spot with this program in a couple of years.
