More Former Ole Miss Players Get Ncaa Waivers

OXFORD, MS (Ben Caxton) — The NCAA has granted waivers to five former Ole Miss football players, allowing them to play this fall after transferring. UCF receiver Tre Nixon, Houston safety Deontay Anderson, Georgia Tech offensive lineman Jack DeFoor, UAB linebacker Jarrion Street and Nebraska linebacker Breon Dixon will all be eligible to play this season instead of sitting out to satisfy NCAA requirements. The waivers all went through the same process as quarterback Shea Patterson, who transferred to Michigan. The NCAA tweaked its waiver process last month to allow players who were in good standing at their previous school to be immediately eligible at their new school if the original school did not oppose the transfer. The status of Ole Miss receiver Van Jefferson, a 2015 signee who transferred to Florida, remains unresolved as he transferred within the Southeastern Conference.
