Mark Dodson has officially left Ole Miss…

Mark Dodson was one of the key prospects out of the 2013 recruiting class, a former four-star running back recruit out of Memphis. The problem at Ole Miss, Dodson found himself at the bottom of the depth chart. His skill sets fell behind more experienced players of I’Tavius Mathers, Jaylen Walton, and Jordan Wilkins, and all of them will be returning next season.

The reasons behind Dodson transferring to Memphis has everything to do with the lack of playing time in Oxford. In his sophomore year this past season, Dodson rushed for 249 yards and four touchdowns and averaged 26.2 yards on kickoff returns. He wants that starting role at running back, and he should find that easily at Memphis. Ole Miss plays on the road at Memphis in 2015, but due to NCAA transfer rules, Dodson will have to sit out the 2015 season. However, the Memphis native will in return receive an extra year of eligibility.

This news officially broke on Monday, so by now Dodson has signed his papers, and is gone. Good luck to him.

The Clarion-Ledger of Jackson and Scout.com both reported Monday that safety David Kamara is also set to transfer from Ole Miss, though no destination school was mentioned. Kamara, a high school teammate of Rebels star Robert Nkemdiche, totaled two tackles in 14 career games at Ole Miss.

From the Clarion Ledger:

There’s now a five-star prospect in Mississippi.

247Sports.com also bumped him up to the nation’s top offensive guard.

Ole Miss fan gets super-dooper Uber bill after Peach Bowl…

From the Clarion Ledger:

Ole Miss fan Joseph Martin explained to foxsports.com’s Outkick The Coverage what happened after he left one party and was expecting to attend another:

I walked my sister up to (her hotel) room and came back to the Uber. Once I got back, I asked the other members of the car what the address of the after party was that we were supposed to be going to. They said they had already given it to the driver and he confirmed.

Let me go ahead and say that I didn’t come out of the party trashed and put my Mississippi address in the system and get a ride home. It was one of the other members of the car that talked to the driver. I assumed they knew the address of the party, which was only about 8-10 miles away. I may have dozed off for a bit. My phone woke me up and I didn’t realize we had been driving for about an hour and a half. The other three people in the car were also asleep. I woke one of them up and asked where we were going and what address she gave the driver. She told me and the driver the address and when he looked at his phone they didn’t match up … obviously.

Martin said the car stopped in Alabama and returned to Atlanta. Uber has contacted Martin and reduced the fare.
