    Would he have to sit out a year even with the mess at Ole Miss?

    TURN IT GREEN!

    CPJ said they will find out if he’s able to play but didn’t give an answer, seems like it’s still in the air as to if he will have to sit out a year or not.

    Yes. They only gave penalty free transfers to rising seniors

    CPJ said they are exploring possibilities and they don’t know yet if he will be able to play next year or not.

    Deontay Anderson, C/O 2016 signee and Ole Miss player, has retained counsel and is petitioning the NCAA for immediate eligibility upon transfer on the grounds that he was misled during his recruiting. 2016 is the same class as Defoor. Anderson has stated that if the NCAA denies the petition he will seek a remedy through legal channels.

    All that to say the issue could be litigated. IIRC, (Big asterick here) the Judge could issue a TRO for the upcoming year allowing players to be eligible immediately; then uphold the NCAA's finding and force the players to sit the following year. Depends on the timeline of the proceedings.

    I thought there was something sent out where any ole miss player can transfer out and be eligible immediately. Like Shea Patterson

    Well 2017 sucked, but 2018 is off to a great start with Dwags losing a heartbreaker, Woody being announced, and now DeFoor jumping on board!! Let's finish the 2018 class strong and close out on Barrett, Chatman, and Brule!!

    He definitely upped his education tremendously by coming to GT which should pay off in spades down the road.
