Boy, it didn’t take Hugh Freeze long at all to master the intricacies of SEC roster management.
One of Georgia’s top linebackers had his football scholarship revoked by Ole Miss because “they didn’t like progress of his recovery from knee surgery,” according to his father.
Mario Mathis of Thomasville High School had been committed to Ole Miss for nearly three months. He got a big surprise when he showed at Ole Miss for camp this past weekend.
“They told us he was no longer on the commitment list,” said Mario’s father, David Fletcher told the AJC. “They basically pulled the scholarship offer.”
The best part of the story is Freeze giving the kid a lecture about “what commitment means.” That’s funny stuff, coming from a guy who’s been handing out offers like candy.
