It appears Ole Miss didn't properly explain the status of its ongoing NCAA investigation to Deontay Anderson prior to his commitment.

The Rebels defensive back submitted a request for a full release from the program Sunday, claiming through his attorney, Tom Mars, that the status of the program's ongoing NCAA investigation was misrepresented to him by athletic director Ross Bjork and then head coach Hugh Freeze, according to Dan Wolken of USA TODAY Sports.

The former four-star recruit voluntarily sat out this season as a redshirt while Ole Miss completes its self-imposed postseason ban, but did play in 2016 as a true freshman, recording 32 tackles and one interception. Prior to his commitment, Anderson was ranked as the top safety on the ESPN 300 for the class of 2016, as well as the No. 41 overall recruit.

Anderson will reportedly petition to be immediately eligible next season to any school of his choosing, including those in the SEC.
