Ole Miss issued a statement Thursday announcing Dacorius (D.J.) Law has been released from his National Letter of Intent to play for the Rebels.
The news means that Law, who created quite the stir earlier in the week by signing with three schools, is now free to join the Utah Utes. According to the report in The Salt Lake Tribune, Law wanted to sign with Utah while his family wanted him to sign with Ole Miss.
Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze said he wishes Law the best of luck at Utah:
Regardless of the outcome of the findings, we want the young man to attend the school he wants. After talking with D.J. and his family, we are releasing him from his NLI and wish him the best. We have put this matter behind us and plan to make best use of that scholarship.
Law, a running back a Haines City High School in Florida, totaled 1,275 yards on 109 carries in 2013, scoring 13 touchdowns.
