Well the signing calss had its first casualty today as Jared Foster was arrested. I am still trying to figure out why we signed this guy in the first place knowing his past run ins with the law. For those of you that are regular readers of the Clarion Ledger, you know this guys story. He had multiple run ins for steroid and alcohol abuse in high school.
I guess Nutt had too much confidence in Foster in that he had turned his life around. These charges are evidently being brought by the Madison County Sherriff, it is nothing that took place while Foster was at Ole Miss for the few short weeks.
