This is a bad break for Ole Miss as it attempts to move forward in the aftermath of Hugh Freeze’s resignation.
Webster was out almost all of the 2016 season due to injuring his left knee vs. Florida State in the season opener. However, he started every game for Ole Miss at cornerback in 2015 and played in every game in 2014, mostly on special teams.
Bing-Dukes saw action in 10 games last season and made three starts. Bing-Dukes transferred to Ole Miss from Iowa Western Community College.
As of now, Ole Miss has not made a public statement about the arrests.
