Report: Ole Miss Hit with Charges of NCAA Rules Violations
With only five days remaining until National Signing Day and one of the busiest recruiting weekends of the year beginning, Ole Miss received a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA on Friday, according to Yahoo Sports' Pat Forde.
The report states that the NCAA enforcement staff has listed approximately 30 different allegations involving football, women's basketball, and track and field.
There are no specifics beyond that, but the Ole Miss football program has been in and out of the NCAA's crosshairs over the past couple of years. Investigations first began in Oxford in October of 2014, which was also first reported by Yahoo Sports.
Last summer, the NCAA launched an investigation into star offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil which led to a seven-game suspension to start the 2015 college football season. Tunsil announced he would enter the NFL Draft following Ole Miss' Sugar Bowl win over Oklahoma State.
The timing of this news couldn't be much worse for head coach Hugh Freeze. As 247Sports points out, Ole Miss might have the biggest recruiting weekend in the country as the program tries to land the top-ranked signing class in 2016. The Rebels currently sit at No. 4 in the rankings.
