Carlos Davis Suspended

Posted: Updated:

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says Mississippi cornerback Carlos Davis has been suspended for six games next season by the NCAA after playing in six games in 2012 while academically ineligible.
 
The person spoke to The Associated Press Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the university has not released the player's name.
 
Davis's suspension was first reported by the Jackson (Miss.) Clarion-Ledger.
 
A 5-foot-9, 163-pound non-scholarship player, Davis was used mostly on special teams, making seven tackles and returning four kickoffs.
 
Ole Miss self-reported the violation in April after being notified of the problem by the NCAA. Documents show a player - whose name is redacted - was initially cleared by the NCAA Eligibility Center last summer, but was ruled ineligible after the ACT cancelled his scores.
