Five-star DB recruit calls Ole Miss racist, then apologizes

Five-star defensive back prospect Marlon Humphrey took to Twitter this afternoon to tell everyone that Ole Miss is racist. He claims that when he and his brother visited campus, there was a KKK rally. Furthermore, he claims they even have monthly rallies.

The Birmingham, Alabama, native is considered an Alabama lock.

Humphrey deleted some of his tweets, but here are the screen shots:

The Clarion Ledger’s John Talty adds that there have been no known KKK rallies on school’s campus this year and certainly are not held monthly.

The school received some negative attention last November when some students led a racially-charged protest on campus after President Barack Obama was reelected to a second term. There is no evidence that there have been any KKK rallies on the school’s campus this year, let alone monthly.

Update:

Marlon Humphrey apologized late Monday night for calling Ole Miss racist on Twitter.
