Ole Miss releases signee from letter of intent

Posted on February 6, 2014 

D.J. Law, the high school football prospect from Florida who submitted signed national letters of intent to Utah and Mississippi, has been released from his obligation to Ole Miss.

Rebels coach Hugh Freeze says the school’s compliance department is cooperating with the national letter of intent office and is “completely certain no wrongdoing occurred by our coaching or compliance staff.”

A Utah spokeswoman says the school also was working with the NLI office.

Law also signed with East Mississippi Community College.

Freeze says after speaking with Law and his family, Ole Miss is releasing Law from his letter of intent.

Law had publicly announced Wednesday that he planned to attend Utah, but both schools received signed letters of intent from him.

The 5-foot-11, 186-pound Law is listed as an athlete by Rivals and a three-star prospect.
