Report: Ole Miss officials used plane owned by prominent booster in NCAA allegations

Another piece to the ongoing Ole Miss saga was reported on Sunday, as Yahoo’s Pat Forde stated that Ole Miss attorney Thomas Mars was sent info indicating that school officials were using a plane that was owned by a booster who is a prominent part of the NCAA allegations.

Forde reported that Mars said the booster has been a prominent part of the investigation as recently as this summer. Mars reportedly said he’s not sure what to make of the info, but that it will be sent to Ole Miss’ NCAA lawyers to look at.

News continues to come out regarding the Ole Miss scandal, which includes the resignation of former coach Hugh Freeze and the allegations against him. Earlier in the weekend, it was reported that Freeze made hundreds of calls to a disassociated Ole Miss booster, as well as a call to a Houston massage company while on a 2016 recruiting trip.

It is unknown how the news of the booster-owned plane will affect the investigation and the scandal as a whole, but perhaps even more news will continue to come out.
