BUFFALO, N.Y. – University of Mississippi quarterback recruit Chad Kelly has accepted a prosecution deal that, with conditions to a plea to a disorderly conduct charge, could let him join the Rebels’ football squad.
Kelly was arrested for his role in a December nightclub fight a week after he pledged to the school. In exchange for his admission of guilt in the case, Kelly must apologize to police and perform 50 hours of community service. Some of that time can be done in Oxford . But, if Kelly doesn’t finish that part of his punishment by March 9, he will go to jail for 15 days. Head football coach Hugh Freeze has yet to say if the heralded signal caller, who led his team to this year’s national junior college championship, will be allowed to put on an Ole Miss uniform.
