Powe denied by NCAA

After further review by the NCAA staff, Ole Miss signee Jerrell Powe, one of the top freshman defensive linemen in the country, has been denied athletic eligibility at Ole Miss. There is still another appeal process expected to be heard Thursday.

Jerrell Powe, one of the top freshmen defensive lineman signees in the nation, has been denied eligibility at Ole MIss - again.

Powe was denied a couple of weeks ago initially, but a group of lawyers representing him, and Ole Miss, filed an appeal with the NCAA on his behalf.

Via an injunction through Chancery Court in Lafayette County, Jerrell was allowed to enroll at Ole Miss as a parttime student while the appeal was being studied by the NCAA.

Today, Ole Miss and Powe attorneys were notified of the latest denial decision by the NCAA.

According to several sources, another appeal has been filed - we assume by Ole Miss - and is expected to be heard Thursday.

At this point, that's all we know on this continuing saga, but we will try to gather more information as we can and report it as we get it.
