A quarterback who was to sign with Mississippi on February 6th has been kicked off the team because of an arrest for selling steroids.
Jared Foster, of Madison, was enrolled in classes at Ole Miss and was informally working out with the team.
He was scheduled to formally join the team on National Signing Day and would have been able to practice this spring.
He spent last year at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.
The Clarion-Ledger of Jackson reported Foster's arrest today on its Web site.
The school announced that Foster was off the team in a one-sentence release but did not say why.
Foster was arrested in Oxford and charged with selling steroids after an investigation by the Madkson County Sheriff's Department.
The arrest wasn't Foster's first. He was charged with simple assault last year and pleaded guilty in Canton Municipal Court.
