Florida athlete D.J. Law made headlines on signing day Wednesday when he signed with three different schools – Utah, Ole Miss, and East Mississippi Community College.

After a day of confusion, Law has apparently settled on a landing spot in Salt Lake City as a member of the Utah Utes.

According to the Clarion Ledger, Ole Miss released Law from his letter of intent a day after being announced as a part of the Rebels’ 2014 recruiting class.

“After talking with D.J. and his family, we are releasing him from his NLI and wish him the best,” head coach Hugh Freeze said in a statement. “We have put this matter behind us and plan to make best use of that scholarship.”

Per the Salt Lake Tribune, Law’s family wanted him to go to Ole Miss while he wanted to go to Utah. On top of that, Law signed with East Mississippi Community College in case he did not qualify academically. Law’s signature arrived at Ole Miss at 8:23 a.m. CT and then arrived at Utah at 3:36 p.m.

Law then appeared on a local television program wearing a Utah hat and said that his heart was with Utah.

“My family and everybody else loved Ole Miss. Ole Miss is a great program, don’t get me wrong, but my heart was in Utah,” Law said. “I talked to a lot of wise people and they told me to follow your heart, so I followed my heart.”

According to the Tribune, in attempts to resolve the matter “Utah sent copies of the paperwork it received to both the Pac-12 office and NCAA along with a video in which Law explains why he wanted to go to Utah in an effort to prove Law wanted to attend Utah.”

Those measures ended up being unnecessary when Freeze and Ole Miss released Law from his letter of intent.

“We are completely certain no wrongdoing occurred by our coaching or compliance staff,” Freeze said. “Regardless of the outcome of the findings, we want the young man to attend the school he wants.”

The whole thing is peculiar, but for Law’s sake, it is nice to see the situation come to a reasonably painless conclusion. If he wants to attend Utah and qualifies academically, Freeze and Ole Miss did the right thing by letting him do so.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Law, a Rivals three-star recruit, rushed for 1,275 yards and 13 touchdowns as a senior and also reportedly runs a 4.35 40-yard dash.
