Ole Miss has lost one of its top running backs for the season.
Ole Miss Rebels running back Jordan Wilkins has been declared academically ineligible for the 2016 season, the school announced Thursday morning.
Wilkins, a redshirt junior, rushed for 379 yards and four touchdowns last season. He was expected to be a “co-starter” this season.
According to the news release, Wilkins failed to meet the NCAA standards for progress toward a degree.
“An appeal was filed with the NCAA for Jordan’s reinstatement based on an administrative error but was denied this week,” the school’s release said.
It wasn’t grades that did Wilkins in. Apparently the school gave him incorrect information about how many hours he needed to remain eligible. Well played, fellas.
