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:
