OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -The Southeastern Conference has cleared long-suffering Mississippi recruit Jerrell Powe to play this season, three years after he signed with the Rebels.
Powe will be a 21-year-old freshman when practice begins this weekend. He was diagnosed with dyslexia and mild attention deficit disorder and qualifies for academic help because of his learning disabilities.
The NCAA twice denied the Waynesboro, Miss., native's eligibility before declaring him a partial qualifier last August with the stipulation that he must complete a year of college before joining the team.
He passed 24 credit hours during the last academic year and has been cleared by SEC commissioner Mike Slive to join the team immediately.
Except for a few games at Hargrave Military Academy, the former high school all-American hasn't played football since his senior year.
