The Ole Miss football program has released former five-star wide receiver and Texas A&M transfer Chris Marshall for a “violation of team rules”. The standout player was set to be a top target for the Rebels next fall.
After releasing top transfer wide receiver Chris Marshall Ole Miss officials released a statement that read “Chris Marshall has been dismissed from the Ole Miss football program for violation of team rules. We wish him good luck in his future plans”.
From Fort Bend Marshall High School in Missouri City, Texas, Marshall was a 5-star recruit in the Class of 2022. Upon leaving high school, he took his talents to College Station and played for the Texas A&M Aggies over offers from more than 20 different programs.
The 6’3, 205-pound wideout was a consensus five-star prospect and was ranked as the third-best wide receiver in the class of 2022 by 247Sports. Marshall’s time in College Station was up and down at best.
Last year for Texas A&M, Marshall appeared in just six games, posting 11 catches for 108 yards and no touchdowns. His best game of the season production-wise came in the Aggies’ first game of the year against Sam Houston where he had four catches for 41 yards. His longest reception of the season, for 18 yards, came against Alabama.
Near the end of the 2022 season, Marshall along with two other Texas A&M players were suspended indefinitely by TAMU head coach Jimbo Fisher due to a postgame locker room incident, and after one year in College Station Marshall entered the NCAA transfer portal.
Marshall announced his commitment to the Ole Miss football program in December and had been with the team through the spring. He had four catches for 89 yards in the Rebels’ Grove Bowl game last month.
