Dacorius Law: A very popular young man on National Signing Day.

Haines City (Fla.) star tailback Dacorius Law had the most successful National Signing Day of anybody in 2014. After all, he's set to play for three college programs.

In actuality, the word "success" can't apply yet. The appropriate term is "confusion" after three different schools claimed that Law sent them a signed National Letter of Intent.

According to The Ledger's Polk Preps site, Law donned a University of Utah cap at a televised signing ceremony around 11 a.m. local time. Yet Ole Miss claims that it received a signed NLI from Law at 8:23 a.m. That's much earlier than 4:36 p.m., the time Utah announced that Law had signed with the Utes.

It gets even more strange. On Tuesday night, Law completed paperwork to go play at East Mississippi Community College and the story states that he gave the paperwork to his grandmother, but that nobody faxed it in. Yet EMCC had him listed on a Twitter feed announcing its signings.

"I don't really know what happened, to tell you the truth," Law told the newspaper. "I trust the coaching over there (at Utah), so I left it to them, and we'll see what happens. If something happens, then I'll be worried."

Administrators at Utah and Mississippi acknowledged that they are looking into the matter. On the MaxPreps National Signing Day homepage, Law is listed as signed with both Mississippi and Utah - something that will get fixed when the saga gets resolved.
