Ole Miss defensive tackle Herbert Moore isn’t pleased with the timing of the report that the NCAA has charged his school with 30 rules violations, which was first reported by Pat Forde of Yahoo Sports.
The Rebels are set to host a who’s-who of recruits this weekend in the program’s big official visit weekend, and Moore doesn’t want the recent report to put a damper on Ole Miss’ chances with some of nation’s top high school talent.
“It’s funny how they make stuff up before the big recruiting weekend,” Moore tweeted Friday.
While things certainly haven’t been made up, matters for Ole Miss football might not seem as dire as outside fan bases had hoped.
The NCAA charges stem from violations in football, women’s basketball and track and field. However, the majority of the violations come from women’s basketball and track, in addition to football incidents from the Houston Nutt era, according to Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports.
The FOX Sports report also states that the Ole Miss football program has already taken taken some measures to self-impose punishment in regards to scholarships that were handed out in 2015.
Still, the reports have not sat well with Moore, and he took to Twitter to let people know how he feels.
Ole Miss offensive lineman Sean Rawlings reacted to the news.
