It was a news-filled Tuesday night for the Rebels, as the Associated Press shed more light on Ole Miss’ NCAA violations and some recruiting news broke. The NCAA news has Ole Miss fans concerned, and there will be some worried folks until the situation is finally sorted out over the coming months.
Here are three things to know:
- The Associated Press report brought to light the number of violations that are associated with the Rebels’ football program. The number is higher than had been indicated early on, but the way the violations are counted also appears to draw some questions.
- Ole Miss picked up its second commitment for the Class of 2017 on Tuesday, as the junior college defensive end confirmed to SEC Country. Needless to say, the defensive line will be a point of emphasis for the Rebels during the next recruiting cycle.
- ESPN released another way-too-early top 25 for the 2016 football season, and Ole Miss is in the top 15. However, the Rebels are also just the fourth highest-ranked team from the SEC.
