Ole Miss has reportedly granted Deontay Anderson a full release from the school, according to a report from USA TODAY columnist Dan Wolken.
Anderson, who played safety for the Rebels for the past two seasons, will apparently seek immediate eligibility at a new school.
He redshirted this football season.
Anderson petitioned the NCAA for a transfer waiver so he could be eligible to play next year. He said he was misled about NCAA violations the school had committed when he was recruited as a 4-star player in the class of 2016.
New head coach Matt Luke granted Anderson the release on Monday, a statement noted.
Here’s a tweet from Wolken, accompanied by the full statement from attorney Thomas Mars regarding the granted release for Anderson:
