QB Cotton leaves Ole Miss football team

BY foxsports • July 25, 2010

Mississippi coach Houston Nutt says redshirt freshman quarterback Raymond Cotton is leaving the university.

A prep All-American out of Fort Meade (Md.) High School, Cotton was No. 2 at Mississippi after competing throughout spring drills with Nathan Stanley.

Former junior college star Randall Mackey, a Bastrop native who transferred to Mississippi from East Mississippi Community College, is the only other quarterback now on scholarship.

Nutt had told The Oxford Eagle last week that he hoped Cotton would stay at Ole Miss. During the Southeast Conference's Media Days, he said Cotton was going through ''freshmanitis.''
