OXFORD — Since the NCAA's decision dropped on Friday, transfers have been a major theme at Ole Miss.
With the two-year postseason ban, rising seniors can transfer without penalty. Players with multiple years left of eligibility have to go through the normal transfer process.
Some players and their families have retained Houston Nutt's attorney, Thomas Mars, to assist them in their pursuit of a transfer.
Here's a list of who has made their intentions to transfer known so far, and who has been granted permission to contact with other universities:
Safety Deontay Anderson
Cornerback Jalen Julius
Linebacker Jerrion Street
Wide receiver Tre Nixon
Quarterback Shea Patterson
Wide receiver Van Jefferson
A University of Michigan plane was spotted at the Oxford airport today. And Anderson posted a picture of Jim Harbaugh, who appeared to be in Oxford, on his Snapchat account.
Tom VanHaaren, an ESPN college football and recruiting reporter, confirmed that Michigan is expecting Patterson, Jefferson and Anderson to visit this weekend.
There was a report this weekend from NOLA.com that Patterson's permission to contact has come with restrictions.
Mars has voiced some displeasure with the fact some restrictions have been placed on some of his clients.
When asked about restrictions on permission to contact on Tuesday, Ross Bjork said the following: "None of the students objected directly to us about those restrictions and if there were objections and a legitimate reason, normally what we would do is work with the student-athlete and their family.
"Taking the student-athletes' best interest into account, coach (Matt Luke) and I, we talked about it this morning and so to be consistent, we're removing any restrictions on their permission to contact for those who have requested permission."
Players with multiple years of eligibility remaining will have to seek a waiver from the NCAA for immediate eligibility, and also the SEC should they decide to transfer within the conference.
