The wait is over: Ole Miss has officially added four-star wide receiver D.K. Metcalf to its 2016 signing class, the school announced Wednesday.
Metcalf is the No. 18 wide receiver in the country, the No. 6 player in the state of Mississippi and the No. 112 player overall. He became the first Ole Miss commit in this year’s class back in June 2013.
The Oxford, Miss., native will join a talented group of wide receivers that returns for Ole Miss in 2016. However, the Rebels did lose Laquon Treadwell (declared for NFL draft) and Cody Core (graduation), so there are some opportunities for Metcalf to make an immediate impact.
At 6-foot-3, 205 pounds, Metcalf’s size and physicality should give him a leg up on the other receivers in this class and make the transition period a little smoother.
Metcalf is an Ole Miss legacy, as his father, Terrence, played for the Rebels from 1998-2001 before playing seven seasons in the NFL.
