One of the stranger stories of National Signing Day came from Florida, where three-star prospect D.J. Law letters of intent for three different schools

Ole Miss and Utah both announced that they had received an NLI from Law, along with East Mississippi Community College. On Thursday, Ole Miss announced that Law has been released from his obligation to the Rebels.

Rebels coach Hugh Freeze says the school's compliance department is cooperating with the national letter of intent office and is "completely certain no wrongdoing occurred by our coaching or compliance staff."

A Utah spokeswoman says the school also was working with the NLI office.

Freeze says after speaking with Law and his family, Ole Miss is releasing Law from his letter of intent.

Law put on a Utah hat at his signing ceremony on Wednesday, so it appears that the three-star athlete will eventually arrive at his preferred destination. The only hang-up now would be with the NLI office, but if Ole Miss is cooperating there will hopefully be a resolution to the issue soon for Law and his family.
