Happy Tuesday, Ole Miss fans.
The countdown to National Signing Day continues. There are only a few days left for in-home visits and decision time is coming for a number of top prospects from around the country. Now, the attention turns to Ole Miss’ big official visit weekend coming up Friday, which should be filled with drama.
Here are four things to know:
- The first of Ole Miss’ two commitments Monday came from a coveted four-star prospect out of Florida. Coach Hugh Freeze and his staff are certainly trying to make sure quarterback Chad Kelly and five-star quarterback commit Shea Patterson have plenty of targets to throw to over the next few seasons. In addition, this big-time get also has cancelled his scheduled official visit to an SEC foe this weekend.
- The second commitment came from an offensive tackle who flipped his commitment from Missouri. The Illinois native is the sixth offensive lineman in the Rebels’ class.
- Ole Miss’ top running back commit visited Alabama this past weekend and was impressed by what he saw. However, the Rebels get the last say.
- What was once thought to be a two-team race for the nation’s No. 9 cornerback might turn into a three-team battle, as LSU has recently turned up the heat for a major Ole Miss target.
