Hosemann’s office refuses comment on investigation into Yahoo report; Commends MSU’s work on Athlete

The Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann refused comment on the Yahoo Sports national report with evidence former and current football players from three different Southeastern Conference schools received impermissible benefits.

Players from Alabama, Tennessee and Mississippi State were named in a Yahoo Sports report claiming players received benefits from former Alabama defensive end Luther Davis, who is believed to be an intermediary between several college football stars and NFL agents and financial advisers.
