One of the top football players in the state of Mississippi has been charged with misdemeanor domestic violence and felony mischief, according to the Jackson Clarion-Ledger.

Ole Miss verbal commitment Tobias Singleton allegedly punched his former girlfriend, a 16-year-old student at his high school, then kicked a Chevrolet Impala that belonged to the girl’s mother. The report also says that Singleton’s father and two brothers joined him in kicking the car, resulting in $3,321.18 worth of damage. The Madison Central (MS) star, who also goes by Tobias Manning, told police that his former girlfriend had hit his car with her's and then drove off.

“She states that Mr. Manning took it and threw her on the ground and started punching her in the back,” according to the police report obtained by the Clarion-Ledger. “(Redacted) advises that (redacted), the father of Tobias Manning, and his brothers, started kicking the blue Impala, causing damage to the driver and backside of the vehicle.”

A 6-foot-2, 190 pound receiver, Singleton is ranked ninth in the country at his position by MaxPreps and chose the Rebels at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in early January. A court date has not been set but the charges filed could result in jail time of up to five years if convicted.

Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt told the Clarion-Ledger that the school was still recruiting Singleton as of Monday night.

Ole Miss commit faces criminal charges

Hey, guy.  Read the very last sentence in the story.  Ole Miss is still recruiting him.  If they woulda dropped him on the spot, I wouldn't have said anything at all.  Anything for a win, though, right?

Are you kidding me??? The Right Reverend Houston Nutt will make some right purty sermon about Singleton being a good kid, making mistakes and second chances and welcome him with open arms. He is not about to toss a four star recruit away over something like this.


As for your high and mighty Rebs, Patterson was kicked off after a year and a half of transgressions. That made it convenient for Nutt to boot him since he was not as good as advertised.


Don’t be so proud for rejecting Cannon Smith. No other SEC schools were recruiting him anyway.


There is no proof nor was there evr an investigation into Andre Smith, so, that is a moot point.


And as for the Sugar Bowl, Ole Miss hasn’t been in one in over 40 years when Archie Manning was quarterback. I am surprised you even knew what it was.

Ole Miss commit faces criminal charges

He's a commit.   I'm sure Ole Miss will tell him to go elsewhere.   Nutt took on Masoli who, by all accounts, was a model student-athlete while at Ole Miss.   We dropped Cannon Smith because of drugs years ago, Dropped Pat Patterson (5 star wideout) because of an attitude, and kicked a few more recruits off last year due to alcohol and drugs.   Ole Miss runs a clean program, and can't help that we occassionally recruit idiots just like every other team in the country.   Why don't you review the impeccable track record of Bama and their fifteen brush-ups with probation and serious flirt with the death penalty before you start kicking dirt over my team.   Also, didn't Andre Smith take money from a booster right before Bama's Sugar Bowl drubbing?  He was a real all-star for your program.

     Sounds like an up-standing member of his community.  He and Masoli could get together and start a drug ring in the locker room or something.  Maybe a murder-for-hire business.  Ole Miss should be proud of their players.
