In February, he left the Ole Miss football program. In May, he returned. But yesterday Houston Nutt announced that receiver Jesse Grandy will not be on the Rebels’ roster this fall after all:
“We had a very high standard of things he had to do to get back, and the seniors attempted to get him back with some things that had been put in place. He didn’t follow through with all of that, and I think deep down inside he wanted to get back closer to home.”
Nutt said that the receiver — he caught 20 passes and played in all 12 games last season — will likely transfer closer to his home of Pine Bluff, Arkansas due to an illness in his family.
Grandy was expected to be Ole Miss’ top kick returner this fall. Last season he returned 31 punts for a 7-yard average and 30 kickoffs for a 20.9-yard average. He returned one punt for a touchdown.
