OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi coach Houston Nutt says
receiver Jesse Grandy has decided to leave the program after the
spring semester because of a family illness.
Grandy, a 5-foot-10, 165-pound sophomore, caught 20 passes for
224 yards and a touchdown last season. But his real value was on
special teams, where he returned 30 kickoffs for 627 yards and 15
punts for 220 yards and a touchdown.
University spokesman Kyle Campbell said Grandy will not practice
with the team during the spring semester. Nutt said Grandy plans on
transferring closer to his home in Pine Bluff, Ark.
