Recruit DJ Law reportedly signed letter of intent with Ole Miss, Utah and a juco
How’s this for a fun recruiting story? D.J. Law supposedly sent a signed letter of intent to Ole Miss, Utah and a junior college on signing day. The juco letter of intent makes sense as a backup plan in case he does not academically qualify, but how do we explain both Utah and Ole Miss claiming to receive signed LOIs from him?
Law, who is a 3-star back from Haines City, Fla., said that he wanted Utah but his family wanted him to go to Ole Miss.
“My family and everybody else loved Ole Miss, but my heart was in Utah,” Law said in an interview with Bay News 9.
The Clarion-Ledger says both Ole Miss and Utah are claiming to have received signed LOIs from Law. If I had to guess what’s going on, I’d say his family sent in the LOI to Ole Miss. Whatever the case, Law put on a Utah hat at his announcement Wednesday and Utah is claiming him as a signed recruit in their class:

But so did Ole Miss!

It will all probably be resolved with Law ending up at Utah. You can’t stand in the way of a kid’s dream like that!
