Pine Bluff native Jesse Grandy to transfer from Ole Miss

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi coach Houston Nutt says

receiver Jesse Grandy has decided to leave the program after the

spring semester because of a family illness.

Grandy, a 5-foot-10, 165-pound sophomore, caught 20 passes for

224 yards and a touchdown last season. But his real value was on

special teams, where he returned 30 kickoffs for 627 yards and 15

punts for 220 yards and a touchdown.

University spokesman Kyle Campbell said Grandy will not practice

with the team during the spring semester. Nutt said Grandy plans on

transferring closer to his home in Pine Bluff, Ark.
