Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze released a statement to HottyToddy.com on Wiley’s arrest.
“We are aware of the situation and recognize the proper authorities responsible for the matter,” the statement said. “Charles is being withheld from all team activities while the process moves forward. We take incidents like this very seriously and will make decisions once the course of actions is complete.”
Wiley, from Stockbridge, Ga., enrolled at Ole Miss in January. He participated in spring practice and was expected to redshirt this season. He was rated as a 4-star recruit in the 247Sports Composite rankings. He was part of the Rebels’ 2016 recruiting class that ranked No. 6 in the country and No 3 in the SEC, according to 247Sports.
