OXFORD, Miss. (AP) Mississippi released Friday the names of 12 boosters that the NCAA claims provided impermissible benefits and recruiting inducements to football players.

The names of the boosters had previously been redacted from the NCAA's notices of allegations and the university's responses. The university re-released the NCAA notices and its responses on Friday with the names of 12 of 14 boosters. The release was in response to a previous ruling by the Mississippi Ethic Commission. The names of two other boosters were still being redacted because of a court order.

Among the boosters named were Rebel Rags, an Oxford-based clothing store, and its president, Terry Warren. The NCAA alleges Rebel Rags and Warren provided $2,800 worth of free merchandise to recruits. Rebel Rags is suing two Mississippi State football players and Lindsey Miller, the father of former Ole Miss star Laremy Tunsil, for defamation in regards to their NCAA testimony.
