Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork released a statement through Twitter, which was meant to assure the “Ole Miss family” as well as warn those who are tampering with its football players. The release comes less than a week after the NCAA handed down further punishment to the football program stemming from its five-year investigation, including fines and an additional 2018 bowl ban. During a news conference addressing the NCAA’s decision on Friday, Bjork said that anyone contacting players with multiple years of eligibility to transfer was doing so illegally and that they were “tracking” that information. On Wednesday afternoon, Bjork doubled down. On Tuesday, ESPN reported that Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson, wideout Van Jefferson and safety Deontay Anderson were scheduled to visit Michigan over the weekend. All three received permission to contact. – Alex Scarborough, espn.comRead More
