On Wednesday, Detraveon Brown, a wide receiver from Shreveport, Louisiana, pulled an Ole Miss hat out of a bag under the table during a ceremony at Northwood High School and announced he was signing with the school.
“They are the SEC and they’re a big-time athletic program,” Brown told The Shreveport Times after the ceremony. “I wanted to compete with the best, so that’s why I’m taking my talents there.”
But Ole Miss never announced the signing, and it wasn’t clear what Brown had signed for the cameras. Ole Miss officials told ESPN that Brown did not receive a formal offer nor was he sent scholarship papers.
