  Draft Scout by Conference









  Otis Reese, a former Georgia defensive back, is fighting for immediate eligibility at Ole Miss after his January transfer. Reese posted a letter to Twitter on Tuesday night alleging that he was manipulated by head coach Kirby Smart and his staff, adding that Georgia opposed his request to the NCAA for eligibility to play this season. Reese also said in the tweet that his time at Georgia took a "devastating mental toll" on him because of "aggressive" harassment by campus police. He also recounted racist behavior by students on campus and said there was a lack of response by the UGA coaching staff.

"From my first moments I stepped on campus," Reese wrote. "It was not what I expected. The racist events that I kept experiencing weighed on me heavily and seemed never ending." Tom Mars, a lawyer who has become involved in many of the eligibility cases around college football players, responded to Reese's letter. Mars runs Mars Law Firm, based out of Atlanta and Rogers, Arkansas. "Kirby Smart's unequivocal support would have caused the NCAA to rubber stamp Otis' waiver request," Mars wrote. "But whether it's Cade Mays, Ohio State's star QB, or Otis Reese, Coach Smart always seems to focus on pleasing the angry, retaliatory UGA fans." - Macon Telegraph
