Apparently, former LSU cornerback Mo Claiborne is not selling his 2011 SEC Championship ring.
Word got out Monday that Claiborne’s ring was for sale on eBay for $100,000. Claiborne refuted the rumors on Tuesday.
“I was not aware that my LSU ring from the 2011 season was being auctioned on eBay until I saw a post about it yesterday afternoon on social media,” Claiborne said in a statement. “I love LSU and treasure all of my LSU possessions. I would never sell any of my LSU memorabilia as the time I spent on the LSU campus are some of my most special memories.
Claiborne also explained how his ring was taken away from him.
“The ring was taken from me without my knowledge and I’ve taken the necessary steps to get it back,” Claiborne said. “I truly apologize to all LSU fans, teammates, coaches and supporters for this unfortunate situation. I am forever an LSU Tiger.”
So if you wanted an authentic Tigers SEC championship ring, you’ll have to wait a bit longer.
