      Hugh Freeze sought 'character witness' from Arkansas State for NCAA investigation

      Former Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze contacted a high-ranking Arkansas State official in 2016 seeking a "character witness" in the current NCAA investigation that involves him, sources told CBS Sports.

      On Sunday, Class of 2018 top 50 prospect Joey Hauser announced his verbal commitment to attend Marquette University and play for head coach Steve Wojciechowski and the Marquette Golden Eagles. While it’s a decision that Hauser, the younger brother of current Golden Eagle Sam Hauser, had to make on his own time, it’s also one that a lot of people saw coming a long time ago. The first two 247 Crystal Ball predictions for Hauser went up on July 2nd and July 3rd of 2015, more than two years ago.
