Mississippi State’s Chris Jones questioned by NCAA about Ole Miss recruitment


Mississippi State freshman Chris Jones has been interviewed by the NCAA regarding Ole Miss’ recruitment last year, according to CBSSports.com.

Jones’ mother told CBS Sports that she did not know about an NCAA interview and never noticed anything suspicious during Ole Miss’ recruitment.

Ole Miss and Mississippi State are the only two campuses Jones visited during the recruiting process, and he was the subject of a tough recruiting battle leading into national signing day. He even received death threats.

According to the Clarion Ledger, Jones’ high school coach William Cook was not aware of any such interview, and he added the NCAA has not contacted him.

Jones was a five-star prospect, and he’s impressed the MSU coaching staff during fall camp. Here’s Jones in action during MSU’s fall camp:

  • Ole Miss pulled in a top recruiting class on the heals of a so many loosing seasons and one 6-6 season. Hum…..

    • Big frikin deal..! So, if ANY team but your team pulls in a big recruit it’s because they cheated, right? I get so sick of hearing this.

      • Well lets see, 16 teams turned OM in for recruiting violations. The one of the heads of the violations committee is President of UGA where I believe Tunsil was slated to go.

      • And almost every SEC team pull in more star power than MSU. I’m not crying about it. Just a fact.

  • It’s has to be pretty frustrating that Mississippi State’s BEST recruiting tool to compete with Ole Miss is to generate lies through partisan media and pass these “headlines” on to recruits. I would be ashamed my program. Bottom line – Starkville SUCKS and nobody wants to spend their college days tailgating in a cow pasture.
