Murphy Holloway has been denied his appeal to be released to South Carolina or Clemson.
Mississippi, where Holloway played two seasons of men's basketball, last week declined to release Holloway to either USC or Clemson. Holloway appealed the decision on Wednesday, but Mississippi team spokesman Joey Jones confirmed this afternoon that the request was denied.
Jones said he was not authorized to say what led to the school's decision.
Holloway was not immediately available for comment.
The decision means that Holloway would have to pay his own way at Clemson or USC for one season before being eligible to go on scholarship. He said earlier this week that he would not want to do that.
