5-star recruit Marlon Humphrey apologizes for calling Ole Miss racist

Stacy Revere

The defensive back prospect caused a bit of a stir on Monday afternoon.

Update: Humphrey has apologized and acknowledged he's never been to Ole Miss.

Elite defensive back recruit Marlon Humphrey took to Twitter on Monday and called Ole Miss racist, which apparently stems from a bad experience he had while visiting the school with his brother.

Humphrey, who is a consensus five-star prospect in the class of 2014, is expected by most recruiting experts to eventually land at Alabama. After his initial tweet on the subject, he went on about it for a while, not surprisingly stirring up some of the Ole Miss fan base in the process.

He may have later regretted ever getting into the whole thing.

Yeah, drawing attention to yourself in this manner is generally not a great idea.
