Florida athlete D.J. Law made the most of his national signing day by signing with three schools.

Yes, three.

Ole Miss, Utah and East Mississippi Community College all received signatures from Law and no one knows - officially - which school got him first.

According to the Clarion Ledger, Ole Miss announced Law’s signature at 8:23 a.m. CT and Utah announced at 3:36 p.m., but the school claims the fax came in much earlier than when it was announced.

Both schools say they are looking into the signing – both schools have him listed as a member of their class – but Utah might have the best case with Law actually signing his letter of intent in front of his school on camera.

Here’s what Law had to say to local TV station Bay Area News 9 – while wearing a Utah hat – after signing with the Utes.

“I told Utah, I thought about it a lot last night and I just prayed to God and I told Utah because that’s where my heart was,” Law told the station. “My family and everybody else loved Ole Miss. Ole Miss is a great program, don’t get me wrong, but my heart was in Utah. I talked to a lot of wise people and they told me to follow your heart, so I followed my heart.”

As for East Mississippi Community College, it also has Law on its signing day roster, but notes that he double-signed with Ole Miss. Obviously, this is a failsafe in case his grades don’t come through.

We’ve seen situations like this before where the player faxes his letter to one place and a disgruntled parent faxes a letter to another. In the end, it will all depend on the authenticity of the signature and the time the fax was received.

This is as interesting a situation as we've ever seen on national signing day. Let's hope no other schools come out of the woodwork claiming to have a D.J. Law signature.
