Representatives from The Grove Collective call ESPN reporter’s claim “fake news”

In a recent interview with The Next Round, ESPN’s Chris Low claimed that “the NIL collective is in Auburn ten times what it is at Ole Miss.”

That statement could be interpreted as an exaggeration, particularly one that Low was aware of when he said it. However, it met with a lot of backlash on social media.

Now a representative of Ole Miss’ NIL collective has gone on record to deny Low’s claims.

“I think it’s fake news,” Walker Jones of The Grove Collective said in an interview with SuperTalk Mississippi, a radio station that covers the entire state. “I think Chris Low is a great reporter. I haven’t spoken to Chris Low or anyone from The Grove Collective so he has no idea how much money we raised […] I don’t know how he would know how big we are.”
