Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze responded to St. Stanislaus High School (Miss.) coach Bill Conides’ tirade on Thursday.
Conides was not happy with Ole Miss because the school didn’t offer a scholarship to any of his 2017 recruits. Conides vented on social media on Wednesday.
“Dear @OleMissFB thanks for not offering my kids,” Conides wrote in the redacted tweet. “I can’t wait for their teams to schedule you in the future. Get ready to get skull-drug.”
Conides may deem Freeze’s explanation as unsatisfactory.
“I can’t comment on recruiting publicly about a school or coach,” Freeze said, according to The Sun Herald’s Patrick Magee. “We haven’t even gone out for the evaluations yet. That starts April 15 or so and then we’ll have our camps. A lot of times in recruiting it’s not only how good a player is, it’s how many did you sign at that position last year.”
The dust has settled on this Twitter spat, but Conides didn’t relent when questioned further about his rant.
“Well, unfortunately for Ole Miss, folks in the SEC know what our young men can do and have offered,” Conides told Magee. “It’s going to be sweet revenge on some Saturdays.”
St. Stanislaus has two players who have received offers from SEC schools. Three-star quarterback Myles Brennan received offers from Kentucky and Vanderbilt. Three-star tight end Chase Rogers has scholarship offers from Tennessee and Mississippi State, according to 247Sports.com.
