Top recruit accuses Ole Miss for racism, holding KKK marches

One of the most coveted football recruits in the Class of 2014 is drawing heat from Mississippi Rebels fans after calling the school and its community "racist" on Twitter.

Marlon Humphrey, a five-star defensive back from Hoover, Ala., took to the popular social media site on Monday to voice his opinion about a recent unofficial recruiting visit to Oxford, and the result didn't reflect too kindly on the Rebels.

Humphrey hit the send button on a series of tweets that accused Ole Miss of being racist in addition to holding monthly KKK marches in the area. The tweets were quickly deleted and Humphrey has since issued several apologetic tweets. However, the damage has been done.

“I get in trouble for twitter so often,” the high schooler wrote. “I ain’t never tweeted nothing bad but I always get in trouble.”

Humphrey is rated by as one of just 18 five-star 2014 recruits and the No. 3 overall cornerback in his recruiting class. He’s also the No. 11 player at any position in the country and the top-ranked player in the state of Alabama.

Humphrey currently holds scholarship offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, and South Carolina, among others. 

I'm no recruiting guru, but I wouldn't expect him to wind up signing with the Rebels, given the lowly comments he had to say about the southern university.

  1. So the University of Mississippi organizes Klan marches on a monthly basis? Really, Marlon? Well, since you already KNOW I'm a racist (and I hate to disappoint), I got three words for you: Fuck you, nigger.
