Ole Miss has granted a release to Class of 2017 forward Jamarko Pickett, a source confirmed to NBCSports.com.
The 6-foot-8, 190-pound Pickett is considered the No. 77 overall prospect in the 2017 national rankings, according to Rivals, as this is a big blow for Ole Miss recruiting.
A native of Washington D.C., Pickett played his high school ball at Massanutten Military Academy this past season as he will likely become a coveted recruit at this stage of the offseason.
Ole Miss still has four-star high school guard Devontae Shuler and junior college forward Bruce Stevens signed for next season.
