According to The Clarion-Ledger's Kyle Veazey, Ole Miss WR/KR Jesse Grandy is leaving school to transfer closer to home. The reason that's given for Grandy's decision is that there is an illness in his family, which would explain why the Pine Bluff, Arkansas native would prefer to be closer to his family at the moment.

Grandy and Houston Nutt finalized the transfer on Tuesday afternoon.

The sophomore caught 20 passes for 224 yards and a touchdown for the Rebels in 2010, while also rushing 12 times for 88 yards. Grandy also played on special teams, where he made his biggest impact. He returned 45 punts and kicks for a total of 847 yards, and also returned one punt 73 yards for a touchdown.

His absence will hurt the Rebels, but it's not a crushing blow. While Markeith Summers is graduating, the school still returns three of its top four receivers in Melvin Harris, Ja-Mes Logan and Brandon Bolden.

I have to admit;  I have no clue where Fayateville is on the map.  Never made it up there during my years at Ole Miss.   I hate I missed the year that kid streaked the field in the Hog-Thong though.   That's something of a legend now.

I don't think that you have to worry about Jesse transfering to Fayetteville, i personally think that it may be further from Pine Bluff than Oxford. Maybe Arkansas State or UAPB.

And we're bringing in a crop of potentially very-good prospects this season.   Farewell, Jesse, and good luck.  I just hope Nutt doesn't let you transfer to Arkansas.
