Five-star quarterback Shea Patterson, rated the nation’s No. 1 pro-style passer, and five-star defensive tackle Benito Jones highlight the list of official additions.
Four-star defensive end Charles Wiley, four-star tight end Gabe Angel, three-star safety Greg Eisworth, three-star linebacker Donta Evans, three-star center Eli Johnson and three-star safety Myles Hartsfield comprise the rest of the Rebels’ early enrollees.
Ole Miss currently has 20 total commitments, including the eight enrollees, and has the No. 5 class in the nation.
Coach Hugh Freeze and his staff have to be excited about the number of early enrollees who can go through spring practice and get an early jump on the rest of the signing class.
